Shamardal Adds Irish Black-Type
Also in Ireland overnight, European champion 4-time Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & 1st-crop stallion Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) added a juvenile black-type success when his colt Arctic (Shamardal-Shawanni, by Shareef Dancer) raced away for a 5-lengths victory in the €45,000 (A$77,000) Listed Grangecon Stud Stakes (5 furlongs) for 2YOs at The Curragh. Arctic (ridden by Pat Shanahan for trainer Con Collins) defeated UK-bred fellow colt Sole Power (Kyllachy-Demerger, by Distant View) & the filly Velvet Flicker (Fasliyev-Velvet Appeal, by Petorius).
