Sire: Champs Elysees
Dam: One Zero
Owner: Go Alfresco Racing
‘Lekki’ has really grown into herself this year, having been given time during her two year old year. She delighted us and her enthusiastic owners when taking her maiden first time out at Wetherby, overcoming a lot of greenness to win by 2 1/2 lengths. A late developer who prefers cut in the ground, she has acquitted herself well in two handicaps at the end of the season, finishing 4th and 3rd, and we are really hopeful she will develop into a useful stayer this year.
She has got us off to a flyer in 2016, winning first time out at Redcar in April over 1 mile, a trip short of her best, before a niggling injury kept her out of action. However she will be back this year to see if we can make April a lucky month again!
