Medaglia d'Oro Adds France Black-Type
At Deauville in France, Darley's multiple Gr1-winning shuttler Medaglia D'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) added a black-type success when the colt Mshawish (Medaglia D'oro-Thunder Bayou, by Thunder Gulch) scored by a neck for trainer Mikel Delzangles in the €55,000 Listed Prix de Tourgeville (1600m) for 3YO colts & geldings, over fellow colts Market Share (Zamindar-Winter Solstice, by Unfuwain) & Five Avenue (Tamayuz-Luminata, by Indian Ridge). Finishing 4th in his past two Gr1 starts in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot and Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly, Mshawish broke through for his maiden stakes victory, taking his record to 2 wins & a runner-up (in the Gr3 Prix de Guiche at Chantilly) from 6 starts for £142,746. Mshawish is campaigned by influential Qatari owner Sheikh Joaan Al Thani.
