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.
