3,377 days.

That’s how long, or short, a time it has taken for Medaglia D’oro to join the ‘100 Club’ made up of stal­lions that have sired a cen­tury of win­ners or more.

The Dar­ley stal­lion achieved the feat when Ever So Clever won

Grade 3 Fan­tasy Stakes in the USA last Fri­day.

In do­ing so, she also be­came the 50th Graded/Group win­ner for her sire.

Among Medaglia D’oro’s cen­tury of stakes-win­ners in the fa­bled Rachel Alexan­dra who was from his firs crop.

Later in life, Medaglia D’oro sup­plied a sec­ond Champion filly via Song­bird who won her first 11 starts, seven in Grade 1 com­pany.

Here in Aus­tralia, Medaglia D’oro has the rare dis­tinc­tion of sir­ing a Golden Slip­per win­ner (Van­cou­ver) and Golden Rose win­ner (Astern).
