Fortunate Man (Soldier Of Fortune) Wins The 4 Yo Maiden At Dromahane

Son Of Soldier Of Fortune Makes Perfect Start At Dromahane

Fortunate Man (4g Soldier Of Fortune - Lady Azamour, by Azamour) emerged as a smart prospect when making a winning debut in the Four-Year-Old Geldings Maiden at Dromahane.

Ridden in mid-division by Mikey Sweeney, Michael Goff’s newcomer made headway from four out and was a clear second by the next fence. Leading from the second last, he kept on well on the run-in to beat the favourite Ghost Hunter (Milan) by two lengths, with another 12 lengths back to the third.

Fortunate Man was bred by Edmond and Mark Coleman, who sold him as a foal for €42,000. The son of Soldier Of Fortune provides an important update for his three-year-old full-brother.
