Cruzada Americana Wins Brazil Gr1 Ferraz
Also in Brazil, unbeaten Cruzada Americana (Nedawi-Spring Princess, by Itajara) "solidified her credentials as Sao Paulo's top 2YO filly on the turf with a decisive victory in the Gr1 Grande Premio Joao Cecilio Ferraz (1500m) at Hipodromo Cidade Jardim," reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Cruzada Americana (ridden by Waldomiro Blandi for trainer Marcos Campos) "closed from last along the rail to score by a half-length over Quanta Beleza & favorite Mary Re in a driving finish". Cruzada Americana now boasts 3 successive wins, also including last month's Gr2 Grande Premio Presidente Guilherme Ellis.
