Bolt d'Oro Wins Gr1 Del Mar Futurity
At Del Mar in the US, 2YO colt Bolt d'Oro (Medaglia d'Oro-Globe Trot, by A.P. Indy) maintained his perfect record when defying interference at the start and a precarious six-side trip to win the US$300,000 Gr1 Del Mar Futurity (7 furlongs, 2YO's) by three-quarters of a length for trainer Mick Ruis, over fellow juvenile colts Zatter (Midnight Lute-Katori, by Dixie Union) & Run Away (Run Away and Hide-Cabales, by Pulpit). Now 2 from 2 Bolt d'Oro has accumulated US$214,230 in earnings. A valuable US$630,000 Fasig Tipton August Yearling by 17 time Gr1-producing Darley stallion Medaglia d'Oro, Bolt d'Oro will now likely head to the Gr1 Frontrunner Stakes on September 30 from where his passport to the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile in early November may well be stamped.
