Ambassadorial impresses at Dundalk
Ambassadorial could be set for a bright future following his successful introduction in the Horseware Maiden at Dundalk.
Mick Halford: Dundalk winner for Godolphin
Wearing the blue of Godolphin, Shane Foley crept into contention on the Mick Halford-trained 10-1 shot to lead at the furlong pole and he careered away from Thomas O'Malley to score by two and a half lengths.
Foley said: "We always liked him. He weakened off a bit on us but has really come back recently.
"He's still quite raw today, and was really only ready to start – the penny only dropped inside the final furlong."
Kildangan Stud's Jimmy Hyland, representing Godolphin, said, "He's a very green horse and Mick liked him at home.
"We expect him to come on from that run today. Fingers crossed he has a big future, and he could be a Classic contender for next year if he goes the right way.
"He'll probably want a mile."
