Orpen Adds Argentina Gr2

Thursday, 22nd October 2009

In South America, former Coolmore shuttler Orpen (Lure-Bonita Francita, by Devil's Bag) added a group success when 4YO entire Lingote De Oro (Orpen-Laika, by Old Trieste) blitzed his rivals by 7-lengths in Argentina's weight-for-age Gr1 Clasico Comparacion (2500m on dirt) at Palermo in Buenos Aires. Lingote De Oro (ridden by Pablo Falero for trainer Ernesto Romero) defeated Bien Toi (Lasting Approval-Bien Belle, by General) & Eyeofthetiger (Tempranero-Coy Sister, by Parochial). Lingote De Oro took his record to 4 wins & 5 runners-up (including each of 2008's Gr1 Gran Premio Jockey Club over 2000m at San Isidro, Gr1 Gran Premio 2000 Guineas over 1600m at San Isidro & Gr1 Gran Premio Estrellas Juvenile over 1600m at San Isidro) from 15 starts.
