Ocean Park Mare Holding Form Admirably

The Allan Sharrock-trained Our Hail Mary continued her run of winning form with a gallant performance to claim the open staying test at Te Rapa this afternoon.

The Waikato Stud-bred and sold mare has been successful in four of her last five appearances, including victory in the G3 Trentham S.

Our Hail Mary settled in the first five before improving to second at the top of the straight and stayed on strongly for rider Danielle Johnson to land the Skycity Hamilton H.

“I thought she would be hard to beat today stepping back up to the 2100 metres and she gets through these rain-affected tracks very well,” Johnson said.

Our Hail Mary was a $35,000 New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale purchase and is a daughter of Ocean Park the Ekraar mare Repenting.

It is a family Sharrock knows well as she is out of a half-sister to his former stable star Shez Sinsational, who collected four Group 1 titles during her racing days.
