Sound the Horns Makes Music

Sound the Horns and Feargal Lynch

January 31, 2017 · By Erin Birkenhauer · Share

Sound the Horns made music over the weekend, breaking his maiden by a widening five lengths at Laurel Park. West Point CMO Dawn Lenert stood in the winner’s circle alongside number of happy Partners who made the trip to the Maryland oval for the race.


The 4-year-old son of Include won like a 2/5 shot should under Feargal Lynch for trainer Graham Motion. “He’s still a baby and figuring it out and wants to go longer,” said Lynch. “He was loping along, and when we turned for home, he took off.”


Watch the race and notice the monster stride this gelding has. He's got great reach and is smooth as silk.

 

  

 

“We’ve always liked this horse,” said Motion. “He had a few issues that prevented him from getting to the races until the end of his three-year-old year, but he’s grown up and has a

bright future."


“Based on his strong debut, I expected him to win next time out, but it's horse racing, so it's never a sure thing,” said Lenert. “When he was slammed coming out of the gate, my stomach dropped, but he recovered nicely and settled into stalking mode.  Around the turn, he gained ground easily, and once he struck the front and switched leads he said, "See ya”! It was a lovely day at Laurel, and our Partners had the best seats in the house at TIPS Restaurant. This horse had quite a cheering section of Partners, friends of Partners, and members of the West Point family. Everyone is pumped to see where Sound the Horns takes us.”

 

Terry Finley and the West Point buying team purchased Sound the Horns at the 2015 OBS March 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale.
