After race at Killarney Tue, 15th May, 2012 (1st)
He was getting the four-year-old allowance and was a Grade 2 winner (over hurdles),. He jumped great and Davy gave him a class ride. He'll mix it between hurdles and chases for the summer and will probably run next in a novice chase.
After race at Leopardstown Thu, 9th Jun, 2011 (1st)
His Excellency has always shown plenty at home but it has taken a while for the penny to drop. He ran well at Roscommon when he was squeezed at the start. He had a chance today on that run and delivered. He is entered in the July Sales and could have another run before then. He is a fine big, good looking horse.
