Having his fourth start, Maldon-trained Mark’s Line broke through for his first win with a courageous effort at Horsham on Sunday.
Lining up in the Bet365 Maiden Plate over 1400m, lightly raced Mark’s Line had not raced since runner-up at Donald on August 1.
Co-trainers Brian and Ashley McKnight had good reason to be pleased with the four-year-old’s performance, with Christine Puls in the saddle.
Mark’s Line, raced by the McKnight family, was well in the market, and finished up defeating rank outsider Capito by 0.4 lengths.
