2nd Winner For US Freshman Sire Aragorn
In the US, multiple Gr1-winning 8YO freshman stallion Aragorn (Giant's Causeway-Onaga, by Mr Prospector) recorded his 2nd 1st-crop winner when 2YO colt Protect The Ring (Aragorn-Everhope, by Danzig) led all-the-way to score by 5.75-lengths over 5.5 furlongs at Colonial Downs in Virginia for trainer Doug O'Neill. Protect The Ring was originally a US$20,000 yearling at the 2009 Keeneland September Sale & subsequently a US$50,000 2YO at this year's Barretts Equine March Sale.
