Walk In The Park Mare A Cut Above On Debut
The well-related Rose In The Park (5m Walk In The Park - Shean Rose, by Roselier) impressed with a clear debut victory in the mares’ maiden at Borris House.
James Walsh took the ride aboard Donnchadh Doyle’s half-sister to Blow By Blow and positioned the bay behind the leaders for much of the way. Making headway into third with four fences left to jump, she improved to lead at the second last and soon quickened clear. The winning margin was 12 lengths, as the more experienced favourite was forced to settle for runner-up honours.
A trip to the sales is now on the agenda for Rose In The Park, who was bred by Mrs Eleanor Hadden.
