Yeats Mare Gains Maiden Hurdle Success
She Tops The Lot (7m Yeats - Top Lot, by Topanoora) followed up on a promising run last time out to take the Mares Maiden Hurdle at Bellewston on Wednesday.
Second in a similar contest last month, the Henry de Bromhead-trained mare was reunited with Rachael Blackmore to lead from the second flight. Ridden clear on the run-in, she kept on well to beat the favourite Trevena by three and a half lengths.
Speaking after the race, Blackmore said, “She had a good run the last day. She's progressed again and hopefully she'll stay going the right direction now.”
Owned by the Foleys Bar Syndicate, She Tops The Lot was bred by John James O’Connor.
