Rip Van Winkle’s daughter Home Cummins (2f Rip Van Winkle-Alava, by Anabaa) looked a filly to follow after breaking her duck in good fashion at Redcar on Saturday.
The Richard Fahey-trained filly, who was bred by Yeguada De Milagro, had finished second on her debut at York on her only other start and connections feel she has a big future after this comfortable length victory.
Fahey’s assistant Robin O´Ryan told the Racing Post: “Home Cummins is still very timid and very green. Mentally she is not the finished article, but we do like her a lot she will be a lovely filly next year.”
A good day for Rip Van Winkle continued when Dick Whittington (2c Rip Van Winkle-Sahara Sky, by Danehill) picked up black-type when placed in the Listed Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot.
