In the UK overnight, European champion 4-time Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & 1st-crop stallion Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) recorded his 7th European 1st-crop winner when front-running 2YO colt Lowdown (Shamardal-Mood Swings, by Shirley Heights) scored over 6 furlongs on the opening day of the Glorious Goodwood carnival for trainer Mark Johnston. Shamardal is currently joint-leading 1st-season sire in Australia by winners (with 12, tied with Arrowfield Stud stallion Not A Single Doubt & Coolmore's Fastnet Rock).
