Emerita blooms at Fairyhouse

Emerita wins easily at Fairyhouse

Dermot Weld's Emerita looks a name to remember after cruising to victory in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden.

Only fifth on her debut last month, she looked a different proposition on this occasion and it was obvious from a long way out that she was travelling better than the favourite Tap Dancing, who yet again had to settle for second.

Emerita was a well-backed 2-1 chance and was heavily eased down by Pat Smullen on crossing the line.

Weld said: "She's crying out for a mile and a half. You won't see her a lot this year as she's a lovely big filly for next year."
