Vancouver Head

Third Stakes-Winner for Vancouver

Fresh from siring Night Raid to win a Listed race at Moonee Valley last Saturday, Golden Slipper winning sire Vancouver has now added a new US stakes-winner to his tally with exciting filly Madone (2f Vancouver x Indian Love Call, by Cherokee Love) capturing the Listed Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes (1600m).

Making her second start after a winning debut at Del Mar on July 31, the Simon Callaghan trained filly settled back in the field and powered home between runners to score a stylish half length win to remain undefeated.

A $120,000 OBS March 2YO purchase this year, Madone runs for Kaleem Shah and is the fifth winner for Indian Love Call, a half-sister by Cherokee Run to stakes-winner Allegre from the family of Group I winners Gold Fever and Boisterous.

One of five North American winners for her sire, Madone becomes the third stakes-winner for Vancouver joining Night Raid and his South African trained Aussie bred Group II winner Mount Pleasant.

A Group I winning son of Medaglia D’Oro, Vancouver stands this spring at a fee of $30,250.
