Goffs graduate wins Japanese Group3
GOFFS graduate Cosmo Meadow was an easy winner of the Group 3 Diamond Stakes at Tokyo on Saturday, pulling away for a two-length score over Cosmo Helenos (by Grass Wonder).
The four-year-old King's Best colt was bred in Ireland by Neil Jones' Abergwaun Farms out of Angel Of The Gwaun, also the dam of Group 3 Blue Wind Stakes Beauty O'Gwaun. The unraced daughter of Sadler's Wells is a half-sister to St Leger winner Millenary, who carred Jones' colours to victory in the 2000 St Leger.
Big Red Farm paid €50,000 for Cosmo Meadow - then named BattlePrayer - at the 2008 Goffs Million Sale.
Bred on the famed King's Best - Sadler's Wells cross that also produced last year's brilliant colt Workforce, Cosmo Meadow is the second Japanese stakes winner for the Haras du Logis stallion following last year's Japanese Derby hero Eishin Flash.
