EMBOUR CONTINUES FINE RUN FOR ACCLAMATION
Richard Hannon’s success with sons of ACCLAMATION continued on April 20th, when EMBOUR (Acclamation) gained his fourth career victory at Kempton.
The progressive four-year-old was held up by Martin Dwyer and was shaken up two furlongs from home, leading inside the final furlong. Digging deep, he held off a challenge by Vibrant Chords to win by a nose.
Owned by Sullivan Bloodstock, Ruxley Holdings and Mrs Doyle, the bay completed a hat-trick last season. Bought by Peter and Ross Doyle for £145,000 as a yearling, he is a full-brother to Listed winner Cake (Acclamation) and a half-brother to the highly-rated Suited And Booted (Tagula).
