Japan Provides 1st Winner For Gr1 Winner Conduit

Friday, 23rd August 2013

Former top class European galloper Conduit (Dalakhani-Well Head, by Sadler's Wells) was represented by the first winner from his debut crop when 2YO filly Meine Valiente scored an impressive 3.5-lengths victory at Japan last weekend, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. Meine Valiente (Conduit-Cosmo Valenti, by Meiner Love), a half-sister to Gr3 winner Dream Valentino, is a home-bred for the Hokkaido-based Big Red Farm where Conduit stands. Trained by Sir Michael Stoute, Conduit was an outstanding racehorse who won 7 of his 15 starts amassing £3,504,639 in prize money. The son of Dalakhani campaigned in four countries winning 4 Gr1 races, namely the Breeders' Cup Turf (twice), the English St Leger & the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes. His swansong came in the 2009 Japan Cup where he was typically gallant in defeat when finishing fourth to champion Japanese mare Vodka.
