Medaglia D'Oro Filly For Triple Gr1-Winner Ipi Tombe
In Kentucky, triple Gr1-winning 12-year-old mare Ipi Tombe (Manshood-Carnet De Danse, by Dance In Time) produced a filly foal by multiple Gr1-winning boom US 3rd-season sire & now Darley shuttler Medaglia d'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) at Denali Stud & "will be bred back to the same sire this spring," reported racingpost.com. On the track, Zimbabwe-bred Ipi Tombe notched 8 wins (including both South Africa's Gr1 SA Fillies Guineas & Gr1 Durban July, plus the UAE Gr1 Dubai Duty Free, UAE Gr3 Jebel Hatta Stakes, US Gr3 Locust Grove Handicap & UAE Listed Al Fahidi Fort) & a runner-up from 9 starts for £873,642 (A$1.45m) earnings. Ipi Tombe was subsequently sold for 850,000 guineas (A$1.445m) at the 2004 UK Tattersalls December Breeding Stock Sale.
