Listed win for Mamounia and now on to the Oaks

Medaglia d’Oro filly shows staying ability and stamps her ticket to Adelaide

Mamounia again signalled her ability to stay and added more black-type to her pedigree page when the daughter of Medaglia d’Oro won the Listed Galilee Series Final on Saturday, 16 April at Caulfield in Melbourne.

Two weeks after finishing a strong third in the G2 Adrian Knox Stakes (2,000m) at Royal Randwick in Sydney, Mamounia outstayed The Cunning Fox and Fearentless after enjoying a perfect ride from premier jockey Jamie Kah in the 2,400m event.

Godolphin head trainer James Cummings sent the three-year-old filly south rather than running her on another bog track in the ATC Australian Oaks last weekend.

Mamounia, out of the Marrakesh - who has a Street Boss (USA) foal at foot and visited Blue Point (IRE) last November, now has two wins and two placings from seven starts for prize money earnings of $171,245.

If she pulls up well, Mamounia is now likely to travel to Adelaide for a crack at the G1 Australasian Oaks at Morphettville on 30 April.

The stallion has sired 26 individual G1 winners, including Hong Kong superstar Golden Sixty, and stands at Darley’s Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for a service fee of US$100,000.
