Stunning looking son of a Champion Sire and an award winning broodmare

Stud Comments

“Breeders that see him will want to send mares. Attracting stallions of this quality is a credit to Cornerstone Stud and we are already looking forward to selling yearlings by Ambidexter at the Adelaide Magic Millions yearling sale. If they look anything like him, they will be popular.”
Adrian Hancock - Bloodstock Agent & Magic Millions Representative

“A tough competitor who consistently competed against the best of his generation.”
Peter Snowden (Trainer)


First Yearlings Averaged over $48,000 and sold up to $90,000 in Book 1 of the 2016 Adelaide Yearling Sale

AMBIDEXTER (by COMMANDS) is a son of Group Two winning mare DEXTROUS who was awarded the title of Hunter Valley Broodmare of the Year in 2013. This makes the Darley homebred a three quarter brother to SIDESTEP, a Group two winner and 2013 Golden Slipper runner-up. Ambidexter is also a full brother to Group One winner SKILLED.

One of just three Group 1 performed sire sons of Champion Australian Sire COMMANDS at stud

Joined an illustrious list of previous winners when he claimed victory in the Group Two Theo Marks Sprint, beating Group One winner Fat Al. The most recent previous winners of this famous race on the Australian racing calendar are Master of Design, More Joyous and Racing To Win.

Group One placed 2nd when beaten 0.2L by old rival Fat Al in the Epsom Handicap, finishing ahead of Group One winners Secret Admirer, Shoot Out, Yosei and Rangirangdoo,

On just his second start as a 3YO, Ambidexter was the winner of the Listed Ming Dynasty H., which has been won in the past by the likes of Lonhro and Dane Shadow. In this race he beat subsequent Group One VRC Derby winner Sangster.

Consistently competitive against the best of his generation, Ambidexter ran an extremely close 4th in both the Group One Royal Randwick Guineas, beaten just 0.6L and also the Group One Rosehill Guineas, beaten just 0.8L.

As a 25th November foal the odds were always stacked against Ambidexter to appear on a racetrack as a two-year-old. However, he showed precocity to win his first two starts, including a stakes race, as a three-year-old during the months of August and early September.

Ambidexter retires to stud as a Group Two winner and genuinely consistent Group One performer. Commands retired as the winner of a Group Three race so it can be argued that Ambidexter retires with a better race record than that of his sire.

Tracing back to the brilliant grey mare EMANCIPATION, Horse of the Year in 1984 and the winner of seven Group One races, the extended family of Ambidexter has repeatedly produced exceptional racehorses – among them dual Group One winner VIRAGE DE FORTUNE, Group One Caulfield Cup winner RAILINGS, Group One South Australian Oaks heroine SMALL MINDS (Canny Lad), UAE Oaks winner RAIHANA as well as Group One-winning half-relations GIMMETHEGREENLIGHT and OFCOURSEICAN, both out of the Canny Lad mare YES SHE CAN CANCAN.
