In Canada, Lana Sniderman paid top price of C$155,000 for a colt by triple Gr1-winning Darley stallion & leading US 2nd-crop sire Medaglia d'Oro (out of 17-year-old Regal Classic mare Words Of Royalty) during the opening select session at the Ontario division of the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society's 2-day Canadian-bred yearling auction (select session September 8 & open session September 12) at the Woodbine Sales Pavilion at Woodbine racetrack in Toronto. The colt (consigned by Woodlands as agent) is a half-brother to 2002 Canadian Champion 3YO colt Le Cinquieme Essai (12 wins from 33 starts for over C$1.3 million earnings).
