Medaglia D'Oro Adds US Black-Type
Multiple Gr1-winning boom US 3rd-season sire & now Darley shuttler Medaglia d'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) added a black-type success when 4YO mare Payton D'Oro (Medaglia d'Oro-Jealous And Jaded, by Jade Hunter) scored a half-length victory in the US$98,000 Listed Bayakoa Stakes (8.5 furlongs) for mares 4YO & up at Oaklawn Park in Arizona. Payton D'Oro (ridden by Terry Thompson for trainer Cindy Jones) defeated front-running 5YO mare Distinctive Dixie (Fusaichi Pegasus-A Lady From Dixie, by Dixieland Band) & fellow 4YO mare Punta Ballena (Gulch-Mi Pradera, by El Prado). Payton D'Oro (a US$35,000 yearling at the 2007 Keeneland September Sale) took her record to 6 wins (also including 2009's Gr2 Black-Eyed Susan Satkes over 9 furlongs at Pimlico, Listed Instant Racing Stakes over 8 furlongs at Oaklawn Park & Listed Remington Park Oaks over 8 furlongs) & 4 runners-up (including 2009's Listed Susan's Girl Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Delaware Park) from 14 starts for US$423,435 earnings.
