The Club claimed it’s second and final horse (for now) of the 2013 season, turf specialist MUNDY out of the 4th race today at Canterbury for $16,000.
Munday is 5-year old mare out of the Cherokee Run mare Conquestress by the Giant’s Causeway stallion First Samurai.
The stakes placed mare is an effective middle distance runner and had a bit of a troubled trip from the race we claimed her. She stayed just off the pace, which is not her normal running style, and as she moved up along the rail ran into trouble causing her to be steadied a bit and losing momentum heading through the turn. She tried to close through the lane but was unable to recover her lost momentum and still finished a nice third considering she was running against her running style and on a softer turf course that she’s been used to running.
We’ll get her back to Clay’s barn and give her the once over before starting her on the “Brinson Treatment” and seeing where she fits next!
