Smart Rules Debut By Son Of Walk In The Park
Are U Wise To That (5g Walk In The Park - Pretty Puttens, by Snurge) made a perfect start for new connections in Thursday’s bumper at Warwick.
Jonjo O’Neill’s representative raced prominently throughout under Jonjo O’Neill Junior and showed signs of inexperience when ridden to lead two furlongs from home. Keeping on well inside the final furlong, he scored by two and three quarter lengths from smart newcomer Attacca (Mahler).
Speaking after the race, the winning trainer said, “He's a big baby, so we were delighted with that - he went through the race nicely and did everything right.”
Are U Wise To That races in the colours of Michael Geoghegan, having been purchased by Peter and Ross Doyle for £125,000. The sale followed a promising second on his sole start for Enda Bolger in a four-year-old maiden at Dromahane. The son of Walk In The Park was bred by Mrs Rita Kent.
