Multaja keeps the Stakes wins coming for Medaglia d’Oro

G1 target looms for consistent filly

The imposing results achieved by Medaglia d’Oro in both the sale ring and the on the racetrack received another boost when his Stakes-winning filly Multaja came from near last to win the Listed Helen Coughlan Stakes at Doomben in Australia on Saturday, 1 June.

Already a G3 winner, Multaja showed she has maintained her form, storming home to grab the lead at the 100m and race away to a dominant win.

Multaja is one of Medaglia d’Oro’s 127 Stakes winners and adds her name to a growing list of credits for the former shuttler who ranks among America’s best-performing stallions.

Medaglia d’Oro’s southern hemisphere winners so far this year include the Stakes-winning two-year-olds Tenley and Flit, the three-year-old fillies Pohutukawa, Adornment and Multaja plus the G1 New Zealand Derby winner Crown Prosecutor.

A filly of considerable talent, Multaja had won four races before her latest victory which could lead to a G1 appointment in the G1 Tatts Tiara in two weeks.

Multaja is a Godolphin home-bred from the Lonhro mare Shelters, a sister to the G1 winner Benfica.
