Nostradamus Wins Gr3 RN Irwin Stakes

Tuesday, 26th April 2016

At Morphettville in South Australia, Darley's multiple Gr1-winning shuttler Medaglia d'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) added a Group success when 4YO entire Nostradamus (Medaglia d'Oro-Leone Chiara, by Lion Hunter) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Phillip Stokes in the $120,000 Gr3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) for 3YO+, over 4YO mare I Am Gypsy (I Am Invincible-Gypsy Violin, by Stravinsky) & 5YO mare Runway Star (Northern Meteor-Intuit, by Commands). Nostradamus took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr3 Gold Coast Guineas & Gr3 San Domenico Stakes) and 2 placings (including the Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes) from 18 starts for $394,330 earnings. Nostradamus is a half-brother to Gr1-winning sprinter Star Witness and was a $500,000 purchase by Kondouris Bloodstock at the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Almavale Bloodstock. He is the fourth foal to race from Gr3-winning Lion Hunter mare Leone Chiara, a daughter of top producing broodmare Chiara (Last Tycoon). This is the family of Gr2-winning stallion Ferocity, multiple group-winning mare Chinchilla Rose, and Listed Darby Munro Stakes winner Chiaramonte (Redoute's Choice).
