Orientate Adds Argentina Gr3

Thursday, 27th March 2008

In South America, former Arrowfield Stud shuttler & world champion sprinter Orientate (Mt Livermore-Dream Team, by Cox's Ridge) added a group success when 4YO mare Lady Sprinter (Orientate-Passionate Player, by Dixieland Band) blitzed her rivals by 5-lengths in the Gr3 Clasico General Arenales (1000m on dirt) for fillies & mares at Hipodromo Palermo in Buenos Aires. Kentucky-bred Lady Sprinter (ridden by Jorge Ricardo for trainer Juan Carlos Etchechoury) defeated Que Felicidad (Bernstein-Queen Tango, by Lode) & Misty Lady (Lucky Roberto-Miss Milagros, by Roy). In 2007 Lady Sprinter defeated older rivals in Argentina's Gr1 Gran Premio Maipu (1000m on dirt) at Palermo in November for her 6th successive victory of the season (also including October's Gr3 Clasico Loteria Nacional over 1000m against older rivals at Palermo & August's Gr3 Clasico Mexico over 1000m at Palermo).
