Friday, 14th May 2010

In South America, former Coolmore shuttler Orpen (Lure-Bonita Francita, by Devil's Bag) added a group success when 3YO filly Orpen Fain (Orpen-Fina Halo, by Southern Halo) scored by a head against older rivals in Argentina's Gr3 Clasico General Las Heras (1400m) at San Isidro in Buenos Aires. Orpen Fain (ridden by Edwin Talaverano for trainer Juan Carlos Etchechoury) defeated fellow 3YO filly Leading The Way (Brancusi-La Gran Portada, by Hidden Prize) & 4YO mare Tweedy Halo (Southern Halo-Twice Crowned, by Fitzcarraldo). Last month Orpen Fain also won Argentina's Gr3 Clasico Asociacion De Propietarios De Caballos De Carrera (1400m) at Palermo; & during 2009 Orpen Fain won Argentina's Gr3 Clasico Manuel Guiraldes (1400m) at Palermo, as well as placing in both the Gr1 Gran Premio Estrellas Juvenile Fillies (1600m) at San Isidro & Gr2 Clasico General Luis Maria Campos (1600m) at Palermo.
