Ballydoyle full of promise

Ol' Man River was the latest impressive two-year-old winner for Ballydoyle and they seem to have a lot to look forward to next season.

Ol' Man River is a beautifully bred horse. I was at the Curragh and, I must say, he is a stunning looking individual.

It's easy to see why he commanded such a premium price at the sales and he hasn't lost any of it.

He's a very imposing horse.

I spoke to Aidan afterwards and he said he was only ready to start but I don't think we'll see him again this year, being by Montjeu they won't want to overdo it with him.

With the likes of Gleneagles and John F Kennedy it looks like they have an abundance of nice colts and it will be interesting to see how they fare in coming weeks.
