Bolt d'Oro Gets First Stakes Winner At Gulfstream


Mounsieur Coco | Lauren King

After switching from the dirt to Gulfstream's synthetic surface and breaking his maiden emphatically by 6 1/2 lengths at second asking Aug. 20, Mounsieur Coco entered stakes company just eight days later with the 1-2 edge. Two wide with J R's Pride (Ride On Curlin) for the lead through a half in :21.95, he took over command under his own power midway around the far turn. Much the best into the final furlong, he didn't give the closers a chance, widening his margin and hitting the line 4 1/2 lengths ahead. The first black-type winner for Bolt d'Oro (by Medaglia d'Oro), Mounsieur Coco is out of a half-sister to MGSP and Pennsylvania-based sire Uptowncharlybrown (Limehouse). His only younger sibling is a yearling half-brother by Bernardini while his dam was sent to Tapiture for a 2023 foal. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
