Medal Count Rides the Rail to Victory in Opening-Day Transylvania

LEXINGTON, KY (April 4, 2014) – Spendthrift Farm’s Medal Count, under a rail-skimming ride from Robby Albarado, rallied for a 1¼-length victory over Picozza to win the 26th running of the $100,000 Transylvania for 3-year-olds before an opening-day crowd of 15,169 at Keeneland on a breezy Friday afternoon.

Trained by Dale Romans, Medal Count covered the 1 1/16 miles on the main track in 1:43.35. The race was moved off the turf course because of overnight and morning rain. As a result, the race was downgraded pending review by the Graded Stakes Committee.

Quotes from the $100,000 Transylvania

Dale Romans (winning trainer of Medal Count)

“He is versatile. He ran well on the Polytrack here in the fall (when finishing fifth in the Grade 3 Bourbon on Oct. 6, 2013), but he just had too much trouble (in the race). This is a really good horse. He’s been one of my favorites all along. He’s a good horse, and he showed the performance we were expecting.”
