Daughter Emulates Her Dam With Cup Day Success

Walk With Attitude followed her mother's footsteps when she won the $150,000 Lexus Hybrid Plate today at Flemington.

The 1400-metre event was the race that Walk With Attitude's dam, Hillfa, won in 2005.

Walk With Attitude is raced by Gerry Ryan, part-owner of Americain, and the three-year-old's trainer Darren Weir said it was a great result for the daughter of Hussonet.

"It's a great result for the family and we get a bit of Black Type for her," Weir said.

"It's terrific for everyone involved and Gerry (Ryan) has been a supporter of the stable for a long time so it's nice to win a race for him on Cup Day."

Walk With Attitude finished strongest in a race that got willing over the concluding stages to register her maiden Black Type success
