Son Of Mahler Races Clear In Maiden Hurdle
War God (6g Mahler - Aktress, by Oscar) appeared to enjoy a change of tactics when racing clear to win Thursday’s maiden hurdle at Limerick.
Racing prominently throughout the two mile contest, the Enda Bolger-trained bay asserted before the second last and soon went clear. Staying on well, he scored by five and a half lengths under Darragh O’Keeffe.
Owned by PP Leonard, the son of Mahler is a half-brother to Grade 3 winner On Eagles Wings (Flemensfirth). The pair were bred by Manister House Stud out of an own-sister to Grade 2 winner Whiteoak (Oscar).
