Saltonstall recorded his first victory since November 2020 when landing the TipperaryRaces.ie Handicap at the Limerick Junction venue last Sunday under a perfectly timed ride from stable apprentice Adam Caffrey.
They went good and quick today and Adam was super cool on him. We told him to fill him with confidence. The ground was beautiful for him today and it was his Derby, there’s life in the old boy yet. Adam is very good value for 7lb and we’re blessed to have two good apprentices in the yard in him and Cian MacRedmond. When they get to know these older horses they are of serious value for their claims.
I’m delighted for Dooley Thoroughbreds and our sponsors BT O’Sullivan as well. They are strong supporters of the stable. This horse started the whole thing going for them.”
