Son Of Walk In The Park Lands Valuable Listed Chase
Sampark (10g Walk In The Park - Sampaguita, by Muhtathir) continued to prove a revelation over fences when landing the Listed Prix Saint Sauveur at Auteuil worth €95,000.
The lightly-raced bay previously gained black-type over hurdles and was last seen winning by six lengths over course and distance. He chased the leaders for much of the way on Saturday, improving into second from three out and was pushed along on the turn for home. Joining the leader at the second last, he asserted on the run-in and dug deep to win by a length and a quarter under Clement Lefebvre.
Sunday marked a second win from four starts over fences for the Fabriche Foucher owned and trained Sampark. The son of Grange Stud sire Walk In The Park was bred by Alain Haddad.
