Italian Star for Helmet
Tara Madgwick - Tuesday, 2 May 2017
Young Darley sire Helmet already has a Group I winner in the Northern Hemisphere in Kentucky Derby contender Thunder Snow and has another classy colt on the rise in Italian based Anda Muchacho.

HelmetThe talented colt kept his unbeaten record intact when posting his third successive win in the Group III Premio Parioli (Italian 2,000 Guineas) at Cappanelle in Rome over one mile.

It was his second stakes win and stamps Anda Muchacho as the best three year-old colt in Italy.

Bred in Ireland, Anda Muchacho is one of four stakes-winners for Helmet and is a half-brother to stakes-placed Parsley from the unraced Shamardal mare Montefino.

A triple Group I winning son of Exceed and Excel, Helmet has sired over 20 Australian winners this season including Group III winners Limestone and Archives.

He is priced at $16,500 at Darley Victoria.
