Admiral D became the tenth individual winner for his leading first-season sire Ardad when landing the spoils at Listowel on his second start for his owner and trainer Michael O’Callaghan.
Purchased at the Goffs UK Breeze-up Sale for £37,000 from Ballinahula Stables, Admiral D was bred by Eddie O’Leary’s Lynn Lodge Stud from the One Cool Cat mare Derval.
O’Callaghan now has big plans for the youngster. Speaking after the race, he said: “I hold this horse in the highest regard. He either goes for the Railway Stakes or to the Royal meeting.”
