Paul Nolan saddled Castafiore Park (5m Walk In The Park-Nadiejda, by Kadalko) to kick off her racing career on the best possible note on Sunday.
The Walk In The Park mare was well-backed for her first run in a Tinahely point-to-point and rewarded her supporters with a three-length victory under Barry O’Neill.
“CASTAFIORE PARK (FR) was the subject of positive market support prior to the off ahead of her debut and given the confident ride which she was given from the front, a big run was clearly expected. Bar a single mistake at the midway point, her jumping was notably sharp and appears to be a real asset to her,” said p2p.ie
“Barry O`Neill never had to get serious on her to account for her rivals here and this daughter of Walk In The Park who is out of a dual track winning Kadalko mare, is value for more than the winning margin indicates. She looks a likely track winner over middle distances.”
