Olympic Glory records first winner at Milan on Tuesday

Bungle Inthejungle and Gregorian also record winners in Italy

Olympic Glory: four-time Group 1 winner from seven furlongs to a mile
1 of 1

Olympic Glory - who notched Group 1 wins in Europe at two, three and four - joined fellow freshman sire Morpheus in getting off the mark as a sire on Tuesday, when son Blury won a 1000m heat for unraced colts and geldings at Milan.

Blury descends from the Italian Oaks winner Lady Bentley and is out of a half-sister to Listed-winning miler Moonlife. 

Olympic Glory was purchased from previous owner Julie Wood by Sheikh Joaan Al Thani after he won the Superlative and Vintage Stakes as a juvenile. 

The son of Choisir went on to record victories in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere, QEII Stakes at Ascot, Lockinge Stakes and Prix de la Foret, amassing more than £1.4 million in prize-money.

His fee was clipped to €12,000 this season, having stood the past three at a €15,000 fee.

Rathasker Stud resident Bungle Inthejungle and the operation's National Stud-based stallion Gregorian also recorded winners in Italy on Tuesday.

Bungle Inthejungle sired his fifth individual winner when daughter Flower Inthejungle won at the first time of asking in a 1000m heat for unraced two-year-old fillies at Capannelle. 

Flower Inthejungle is out of a daughter of Radha, an unraced half-sister to six-time Group 1 winner Rakti.

Gregorian, meanwhile, supplied his third individual winner in Greach, who won a similar contest to Flower Inthejungle at Milan. 

Greach is out of the Marju mare Ach Alannah and shares her granddam with last year's Prix Maurice de Gheest third Tupi.
