Having been knocking on the door all prep, the planets finally aligned for Mr Mt Walker as he scrapped hard to claim the Congratulations Adam Durrant – Leading Trainer Handicap (Race 10-1600m) at Belmont today.

On a day when you needed to be close to the rail, Shaun McGruddy had him perfectly placed following the leader Axel ‘r’ Eight, and angling out into clear air on straightening he kicked well enough to hold $3.50 fave Catalpa at bay late.

A $24,000 purchase at the 2018 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, Mr Mt Walker has now recorded six wins in his 29 starts and a tick over $140,000 in prizemoney. And with his level of consistency and effort, we’re confident the six-year-old can chalk up a few more victories along the way.
