Bolt d'Oro Overview
Not many stallions have won two Group 1 races in their first three starts – no other stallion at stud in Australia in fact.
One of the best American two-year-olds of the last decade, Spendthrift Australia is proud to introduce Bolt d’Oro (USA), a multiple Group 1-winning millionaire son of Medaglia d’Oro (USA) to the 2019 roster.
Bolt d’Oro struck a cord in his juvenile season with three emphatic victories.
After capturing his debut, Bolt d’Oro jumped into Group 1 company to win the G1 Del Mar Futurity and then claimed the G1 Frontrunner Stakes by 7 3/4 lengths in his third start. In doing so, Bolt d’Oro established himself as the only multiple Group 1-winning two-year-old colt from his crop in North America.
In his first start at three, Bolt d'Oro won the Group 2 San Felipe Stakes before finishing runner-up to eventual Triple Crown winner Justify in the Group 1 Santa Anita Derby.
With his back-to-back Group 1 wins, Bolt d’Oro retired to stud as Medaglia d’Oro’s most accomplished two-year-old colt ever in the northern hemisphere.
Bred in Kentucky by WinStar Farm, the precocious galloper was a US$630,000 Saratoga Select yearling. He is by a proven outcross sire with a powerful ability to sire high-class two-year-olds, and he is completely free of Danehill or Danzig blood.
Out of the winning A.P Indy mare Globe Trot, all three of her progeny are stakes winners.
Exceptional stallion Medaglia D'Oro sired Golden Slipper hero Vancouver, Golden Rose star Astern and Derby winner Crown Prosecutor during his time in Australia. His current two-year-old crop include Group winners Tenley and Flit.
