20/06/02 Another Smerdon Jumper Breaks Through
r1rsmerdon.jpg (8693 bytes)Robert Smerdon's joy with the jumpers continued at Mornington today when War Abandoned broke through for his first career win in the Ian Leslie Electrical Maiden Hurdle (2950m).

Just over a week ago Smerdon unearthed a potential jumping star of the future when the Zabeel gelding Zabenz won at his jumping debut in the Trial Hurdle at Flemington.

Although War Abandoned may not reach the lofty heights expected of his talented stablemate, it was still a good effort to win today.

With Ciaron Maher in the saddle, War Abandoned ($7) proved much too good for Jet Soon ($31) winning by some eight lengths.

The $21 chance Jon Ledecky was a further four and a half lengths away in third place.

War Abandoned ploughed through the heavy conditions in great style stopping the clock at 3 minutes 27.5 seconds.
