Medaglia D'Oro Adds US Black-Type
In the US, multiple Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Medaglia D'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) added a black-type success when expensive 4YO mare Super Espresso (Medaglia d'Oro-Amizette, by Forty Niner) notched her 3rd successive win with victory by a head in the US$60,000 Listed Sky Beauty Stakes (8 furlongs) for mares 4YO & up at Aqueduct in New York. Favourite Super Espresso (ridden by Junior Alvarado for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated 5YO mare Diva's Gold (Tenpins-Subtle Song, by Wavering Monarch) & front-running fellow 4YO mare Electric Gold (Seeking The Gold-Valid Warning, by Valid Appeal). Super Espresso (a US$1.1 million yearling at the 2008 Keeneland September Sale) took her record to 3 wins & 3 placings from 9 starts for US$117,860 earnings.
