Successful first-crop sire Vadamos added another winner to his tally on Wednesday when Messidor ran out the impressive winner of the fillies maiden at Dundalk.
Sent off the even money favourite for Joseph O'Brien, Messidor was always in a good position and swiftly sealed matters with a good turn of foot to win by two-and-a-quarter lengths from Golden Lyric.
Messidor was bred in Ireland by Fairway Thoroughbreds out of Pyrenean Queen, a Zoffany half-sister to Group 3 winner Duchess Andorra from the famous Pass The Peace family. She was bought for €28,000 by Dan Hayden as a Goffs Orby yearling and races for Blue Devil Racing Stable LLC.
A top miler, Vadamos is now a successful young sire. In addition to Messidor, his early performers include the Group 3-placed Spycatcher and Andrew Balding's two-time winner Oo De Lally, who is rated 94.
