Progressive Walk Of Fame returns in style
Walk Of Fame opened her spring campaign in the best possible fashion at Hamilton on Monday afternoon.
The promising daughter of the late Sacred Falls was resuming over 1100 metres and trainer Danny O’Brien had her in top order for her seasonal debut.
The Waikato Stud-bred and raced Walk Of Fame was away well to settle fifth off the fence and rider Fred Kersley peeled out three wide before the turn and finished far too well for their Benchmark 58 opposition.
“She certainly was impressive and I was happy with the way the race panned out,” Kersley said.
“The further we went the better she got and I really liked the way she knuckled down in the last furlong, there’s more in store for her.”
The winner of two of her three starts, Walk Of Fame is the first foal of the Savabeel mare Boulevard who is a sister to the G2 Thousand Guineas Prelude winner Acting with their dam Hollywood a daughter of the two-time Group 1 winner Glamour Puss.
Her half-brother Vision And Power also claimed a brace of top-flight titles while the pedigree further features the G1 Coolmore Classic winner Steps In Time.
Boulevard’s three-year-old Tivaci filly Rue De Rivoli was a $340,000 Karaka graduate and has raced once for Te Akau.
The mare, whose Super Seth colt was bought by Busuttin Racing and Group 1 Bloodstock for A$240,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale earlier this year, has a Tivaci yearling filly and is due to foal again to Super Seth this season.
