Walk In The Park Mare Adds To Family Success In Bumper
The well-bred Walk In The Storm (5m Walk In The Park - Mucho Macabi, by Exceed And Excel) built on a promising debut to win the mares’ bumper at Newcastle on Saturday.
The half-sister to Tornado Flyer (Flemensfirth) finished a close second on debut last season and was sent off joint favourite to go one better at the weekend. Racing in midfield under Fergus Gregory, Ian Williams’ charge made headway from three furlongs out and was ridden to lead approaching the final furlong. Running on well, she scored by a length and a half.
Owned by Topspeed Thoroughbreds and bred by Sweetmans Bloodstock, Walk In The Storm provides a nice update for her full-sister who sold as a foal for €35,000 in November.
