Medaglia Strikes Gold

One of the pleasant surprises among the freshman ranks has been the fast start made by Medaglia d'Oro (TrueNicks,SRO) . The Stonewall Farm stallion ran only once at 2, finishing second (although it's worth recalling that he is a son of Irish champion 2-year-old El Prado (IRE)). Medaglia d'Oro has already been represented by 10 individual 2-year-old winners including four stakes horses and two stakes winners. The most recent of those is C. S. Silk, who captured the Arlington-Washington Futurity (gr. III) September 6.

Out of a mare by the Buckpasser horse Settlement Day, C. S. Silk was rated A++ even before her triumph, on the basis of the El Prado/Buckpasser cross.
