First Winner For Magna Grecia At Saint-Cloud

Coolmore’s first-season sire Magna Grecia (Ire) (by Invincible Spirit {Ire}) proved an instant hit in 2023 as his first runner Myconian (Ire) captured Saint-Cloud’s 4 1/2-furlong Prix du Debut on Thursday. Always prominent under Mickael Barzalona, the Amy Murphy-trained son of the Listed Tipperary S. winner and G3 Curragh S. third Sirici (Ire) (Choisir {Aus}) who traded as the 19-5 favourite outbattled The Fixer (Ire) (No Nay Never) inside the final 50 metres for a gutsy 3/4-of-a-length success.

The dam hails from the family of the dual listed-winning sprinter Dazed And Amazed (GB) (Averti {Ire}) and the ultra-fast Bishops Court (GB) whose impressive career tally included the G3 Prix du Petit Couvert. Sirici’s yearling colt is by Circus Maximus (Ire). Video, sponsored by TVG.
