A $300,000 Keeneland September purchase by Peter Brant back in 2020, SPIRIT OF ST LOUIS (Medaglia d’Oro) makes a belated first trip to the races. Bred by the Bromans, the dark bay is a gelded son of GIII Herecomesthebride S. winner Khancord Kid (Lemon Drop Kid), whose daughter Bar of Gold (Medaglia d’Oro) caused one of the bigger upsets in the history of the Breeders’ Cup when taking out the GI Filly & Mare Sprint in 2017, returning $135.40 to her backers. Bar of Gold has gone on to be a producer herself, as she is responsible for Grade III-winning turfer Coinage (Tapit), as well as the placed Chulligan (Justify), an $825,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga graduate.
