D’oro in the Club
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).
