Keeneland Sep Day-1: US$1.5 Million Medaglia d'Oro Filly
Europe's famous Niarchos family made an immediate impact in bidding on Day-1 at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale which started in the early hours of this morning, Australian time. Purchased on their behalf by Alan Cooper, the Niarchos family's latest acquisition is a US$1.5 million filly by Darley shuttler Medaglia d'Oro whose first Australian crop topped the 2013 Inglis Easter 1st crop sire stats. From the family of brilliant US 3YO More Than Ready colt Verrazano, the filly is a half-sister to the graded stakes-winning pair Hungry Island & Soaring Empire.
