Monday, 27th June 2016

At The Curragh in Ireland, Swettenham's dual Gr1 Kings Stand Stakes winning shuttler Equiano (Acclamation-Entente Cordiale, by Ela-Mana-Mou) added a Group success when 2YO UK-bred colt Medicine Jack (Equiano-Agony Aunt, by Formidable) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Ger Lyons in the Gr2 Railway Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YOs, over 2YO French-bred colt Peace Envoy (Power-Hoh My Darling, by Dansili) & 2YO Irish-bred colt Dream Of Dreams (Dream Ahead-Vasilia, by Dansili). This was the first stakes victory for Medicine Jack who improved his record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 4 starts for €79,790 earnings. Lyons said Medicine Jack would now be aimed at the Gr1 Phoenix Stakes (6 furlongs) at The Curragh on 7 August.
