Medaglia D'Oro Adds US Gr3

Monday, 23rd May 2011

In the US, multiple Gr1-winning shuttler Medaglia D'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) added a graded-stakes success when 4YO mare Super Espresso (Medaglia D'oro-Amizette, by Forty Niner) scored a 0.75-length victory in the US$100,000 Gr3 Allaire Dupont Distaff Stakes (8.5 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Pimlico in Maryland. Super Espresso (ridden by Ramon Dominguez for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated 5YO mare Payton D'Oro (Medaglia D'oro-Jealous And Jaded, by Jade Hunter) & 6YO mare Life At Ten (Malibu Moon-Rahrahsixboombah, by Rahy). Super Espresso (a US$1.1 million yearling at the 2008 Keeneland September Sale) took her record to 4 wins (also including February's Listed Sky Beauty Stakes over 8 furlongs at Aqueduct) & 4 placings (including March's Listed Am Capable Stakes over 8 furlongs at Aqueduct) from 12 starts for US$185,360 earnings.
