Classic aim for Duke Of Marmalade Listed winner

So Many Shots (3f Duke Of Marmalade-Cland Di San Jore, by Lando) is being aimed at the G2 Italian Oaks after winning the Listed Premio Baggio at San Siro in Milan on Sunday.

She ran out a four-length winner of the 2,000 metre event, with Orange Sun (3f Duke Of Marmalade-Star On Stage, by Sadler’s Wells) in third, and trainer Stefano Botti believes So Many Shots is now a worthy Classic contender.

“She is a strong filly with scope and the extra furlong in the Oaks is not a concern,” Botti told EBN. “Today she ran well despite the heavy ground being against her. She deserves a tilt at the Oaks. She will be up against (stablemate) Final Score (3f Dylan Thomas-Holy Moon, by Hernando) – I don’t know who is the better but I prefer to have two big chances than one.”

So Many Shots was bred in Ireland by Sandro Garavelli and was sold for 24,000 euros as a yearling at the Goffs Sportsman Sale.
