Cherry Mix Wins Italy Gr1 Jockey-Club
In Europe overnight, Godolphin 4YO Cherry Mix (Linamix-Cherry Moon, by Quiet American) led most of the way to win the Gr1 Gran Premio del Jockey-Club on soft ground at San Siro in Milan, reported thoroughbredinternet.com. Cherry Mix (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Saeed bin Suroor) defeated German-visitors Salutino & Malinas. Cherry Mix was purchased by Godolphin from French owner-breeder Jean-Luc Lagardere after finishing runner-up in the 2004 Gr1 Arc de Triomphe. He is the 9th Gr1 winner for Linamix (who stands at Haras du Val Henry in France); he also has 11 stakes-winners in 2005 (including French Gr1 Prix du Cadran winner Reefscape).
