Ambitious triumphs Sankei Osaka Hai


Having placed a neck second to Duramente in the Nakayama Kinen last February, Ambitious continued to run well as he won the grade two Sankei Osaka Hai at Hanshin on Sunday.
Norihiro Yokoyama on Ambitous for the first time stalked the pace by Kisatan Black before getting past him for a neck victory. Third was, another 1 1/4-length behind, Shonan Pandora. Race favorite Lovely Day finished fourth, another 1 1/2-length further behind. The final time for the 2,000-meter on firm ground was 1 minute 59.30 seconds. Ambitious paid 390 jpn yen for win as second favorite. 
Ambitious is a 4-year-old dark bay colt by Deep Impact out of Carnival Song, by El Condor Pasa.
