Orpen Adds UK Gr2

Thursday, 31st July 2008

Also in the UK overnight, former Coolmore shuttler Orpen (Lure-Bonita Francita, by Devil's Bag) added a juvenile group success when Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum's Irish-bred colt Orizaba (Orpen-Jus'chillin', by Elbio) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the £85,000 (A$179,000) Gr2 Vintage Stakes (7 furlongs) for 2YOs at Goodwood. Favourite Orizaba (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Mick Channon) defeated US-bred colt Lord Shanakill (Speightstown-Green Room, by Theatrical) & fellow Irish-bred colt Sayif (Kheleyf-Sewards Folly, by Rudimentary). Orizaba now has 2 wins (also including a 9-lengths victory at Newbury on debut) from 3 starts.
