Papa Lucas Wins Venezuela Gr1 Copa De Oro
In South America, 4YO entire Papa Lucas (Grace Of Darby-Greek Fiesta, by Carnivalay) raced away for a 7.5-lengths victory in Venezuela's Gr1 Clasico Copa De Oro (2400m on turf) at La Rinconada to win this race for the 2nd year in succession (last year's margin was an equally decisive 5.75-lengths). Papa Lucas (ridden by A.Finol for trainer C.Cachazo) defeated Cheiron (Maria's Mon-Fortunee, by Wild Again) & Aguila De Oro (Chayim-Solanda, by Slewbop). Previously this year Papa Lucas finished 2nd by a neck in last month's Gr1 Clasico International Propietarios De La Rinconada (2000m on dirt).
