Palmaday Celebrates Gr1 Pretty Polly
And still in Queensland, Palmaday Stud had as much reason as anyone to celebrate the weekend victory of Alexander Goldrun (Gold Away-Renashaan, by Darshaan) in the Gr1 Pretty Polly Stakes at Ireland's The Curragh. The Jim Buchanan-managed property is standing undefeated 2YO stakes winner Medecis for the 2nd year. The Group-winning 3YO, rated France's top miler, was runner-up in both the Gr1 French 2000 Guineas & the Gr1 Prix de la Foret (1400m), and has a US Graded stakes placing to his credit as well. Medecis is by high profile Mr Prospector sire-son Machiavellian, and stands for $7,000 alongside Minardi ($8,800), King Of Happiness ($5,000) & Significant Hill ($4,000).
