Montjeu Adds Irish Gr3

Monday, 24th May 2010

Dual-Derby winning Coolmore sire & former NZ Windsor Park shuttler Montjeu (Sadler's Wells-Floripedes, by Top Ville) also added an Irish group success overnight when his colt Jan Vermeer (Montjeu-Shadow Song, by Pennekamp) scored a 1.75-lengths victory in the €55,000 (A$83,000) Gr3 Gallinule Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YOs at the Curragh. Jan Vermeer (ridden by Johnny Murtagh for trainer Aidan O'Brien) defeated fellow colts Bobbyscot (Alhaarth-Sogno Verde, by Green Desert) & US-bred Shintoh (Giant's Causeway-Hollywood Wildcat, by Kris S). Last year as a juvenile, Jan Vermeer also won France's Gr1 Gr1 Criterium International (1600m) at Saint-Cloud.
