Monday, 9th May 2011

In Italy, European champion 4-time Gr1-winning shuttler Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) added a group success when unbeaten Irish-bred colt Crackerjack King (Shamardal-Claba Di San Jore, by Barathea) scored a 2-lengths victory in the €666,000 (A$926,000) Gr2 Derby Italiano (2200m) for 3YOs at the Capannelle in Rome. Crackerjack King (ridden by Fabio Branca for trainer Stefano Botti) defeated fellow Irish-bred colt Cazals (Aussie Rules-Secrete Marina, by Mujadil) & German-bred filly Danedream (Lomitas-Danedrop, by Danehill). Crackerjack King now has 4 wins (also including 2010's Listed Premio Campobello over 1800m at San Siro) from 4 starts for €410,800 (A$571,000) earnings.
