Medaglia d'Oro Adds France Gr3

Tuesday, 14th April 2015

Darley shuttler Medaglia dOro, sire of recent Gr1 Golden Slipper hero Vancouver, has another rising star on the horizon, this time in France. At Longchamp, Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farm's homebred 3YO filly Mexican Gold (Medaglia d'Oro-Hachita, by Gone West) franked her debut win by driving through when it mattered most to score a narrow victory for trainer Andre Fabre in the Gr3 Prix de la Grotte (1600m) for 3YO fillies, defeating fellow fillies Penorka (Orpen-Rioka, by Captain Rio) & Vedouma (Dalakhani-Vadawina, by Unfuwain). According to thoroughbreddailynews, Khalid Abdullah's racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe enthused after the event: "She is a lovely filly and to win that on only her second start was a good performance... All being well, she will return here for the Gr1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches."
