Everything Good With Summer Front

Summer Front wins 2012 Hill Prince.

Summer Front emerged from his game victory in Saturday’s Grade 3 Hill Prince in good order, trainer Christophe Clement reported Sunday morning.

 

“As of now, everything is good,” Clement said. “We are enjoying the win. Obviously he’s a nice horse, to win that way, three strides and being boxed in. That’s what good horses do. I was very impressed by that. He came back OK, a little bit stiff, but not bad. I have not called Mr. Moore yet [of Waterford Stable], who is the owner, but we’ll have to think about the next race.”

 

Clement continued to praise Ramon Dominguez’s cool-headed ride aboard Summer Front in yesterday’s race. Trapped behind horses through most of the stretch, Dominguez angled the son of War Front outward with a sixteenth of a mile to go, and the horse bounded swiftly by the front runners to get up by a half length.

 

“We all watch Ramon ride every day, so we know [his style],” Clement said. “Yesterday Ramon never panicked, never tried to force anything, he was just so patient. So Ramon’s ride, plus the horse’s ability, it was great to watch.”
