The 2YO colt by multiple Gr1-winning shuttler Medaglia D'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) which topped last year’s US Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Select Yearling Sale scored on debut when Gold Rally (Medaglia d'Oro-Beright, by Gray Slewpy) won over 8 furlongs at Haydock Park in the UK for Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni. Dick O'Gorman (acting for Sheikh Mohammed's bloodstock manager John Ferguson) paid top price of US$450,000 for Gold Rally (consigned by Meg Levy's Bluewater Sales for breeder Mike Moreno's Southern Equine Stables) who is a half-brother to Gr2 winner Principle Secret.
