Shards Wins Gr3 Up And Coming Stakes
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Darley's multiple Gr1-winning shuttler Medaglia d'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) added a Group success when 3YO colt Shards (Medaglia d'Oro-Shatters, by Lonhro) scored by 0.4-length for trainer John O'Shea in the $125,000 Gr3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) for 3YO c&g, over 3YO gelding Voilier (Beneteau-Ivyrose, by Strategic) & fellow 3YO colt Sebring Sun (Sebring-Soleil Royale, by French Deputy). A homebred for Godolphin, Shards took his record to 2 wins and 2 placings from 4 starts for $165,460 earnings. Trainer John O'Shea is yet to decide where Shards will run next but the colt holds several big race entries including the Gr1 Golden Rose and Gr1 Caulfield Guineas.
