Walk In The Park Mare Leaps To Maiden Victory
A fine round of jumping saw Cruisin Susan (5m Walk In The Park - Taleia, by Dashing Blade) come out on top in a thrilling finish to Sunday’s maiden hurdle at Tramore.
Trained by John Berry and ridden by his son of the same name, the bay was well-supported in the market, following a recent fourth over course and distance. Ridden patiently, she made headway with three flights left to jump and led approaching the second last. Ridden soon after, she dug deep on the run-in to deny the favourite Walk On The Moone (Walk In The Park) by a short head.
Cruisin Susan runs in the colours of Mrs Anna Berry and becomes the first winner bred by Grove View Stud out of Taleia.
