Keeneland Presents American Graded Stakes Standings: Bolt From The Blue

There had been plenty of pre-race buzz about Bolt d’Oro going into the G1 Del Mar Futurity, even though the 2-year-old son of Medaglia d’Oro only had one lifetime start – albeit a winning one – to his credit going into the race. Regardless of his lack of racing experience, the colt lived up to the hype with a sweeping, come-from-behind victory in Del Mar’s closing day feature.

Bolt d’Oro became the fifth G1 winner of 2017 for Medaglia d’Oro, a feat no other North American-based stallion has accomplished this year. The Futurity victory also moved Medaglia d’Oro into the top five of the American Graded Stakes Standings sire list, with six individual graded stakes winners that have captured 10 graded stakes races.

In addition to Bolt d’Oro, Medaglia d’Oro’s other stakes winners this year are – Songbird (G1 Ogden Phipps, G1 Delaware Handicap), Elate (G1 Alabama) New Money Honey (G1 Belmont Oaks Invitational, G3 Wonder Again), Dickinson (G1 Jenny Wiley, G3 Hillsborough, G3 Suwanee River), and Ever So Clever (G3 Fantasy).

Gun Runner continued to build his case for year-end championship honors when he overpowered his rivals in the G1 Woodward Stakes at Saratoga. The Woodward marked the colt’s fourth graded stakes win this year, placing him in a tie with Vale Dori for first on the AGS list of top horses.
