BEAU BOUNDS TO BARK GLORY AT BEVERLEY

The Danielle Mooney-trained Beau scorched a trail to glory in the inaugural running of the Burgess Supadog Bark de Triomphe at Beverley on Tuesday afternoon.

After two trials featuring canine speedballs that are trained and owned by jockeys, Mooney’s Collie showed jawdropping pace to seize the day by half a dog’s length.

The class K9 affair for eight-month-olds and upwards was staged in aid of Antibiotic Research UK.

The first three dogs home in each Bark Trial heat then contested the grand final of the Bark de Triomphe - a race which unquestionably stopped a nation in its tracks.

But it was Mooney and Beau who landed the total prize fund of unbelievable kudos, a bag of Burgess Supadog and a cuddly toy with an ultra-game frontrunning performance.

A visibly emotional Mooney said: “She’s done her job. She’s won her maiden brilliantly and now she goes off to stud.

“This is probably one of my finest moments on a racecourse.

“It will take a while to sink in, but when I get back to Catterick I’m sure the magnitude of what Beau has achieved will hit home.

“She’s got a great pedigree and is one my best chums.”

There was also perfect symmetry to Beau’s victory as the Collie was named in homage to Sophie’s Beau, who provided Mooney with a first winner as a jockey at Beverley in June 2013.

Mooney added: “I didn’t have a ride on the Beverley card today, but for Beau to show the sporting world what she was capable of will make the long journey back north that much sweeter.”

Beverley’s Bark de Triomphe has already raised over £3,700 for Antibiotic Research.
