Olympic Message Wins Brazil Gr1 Possollo
In Brazil, front-running female Olympic Message (Wild Event-Mere Catherine, by Jules) blitzed her rivals by 5.25-lengths in the Gr1 Grande Premio Henrique Possolo (1600m on turf) for 3YOs fillies at Hipodromo La Gavea in Rio de Janeiro. Olympic Message (ridden by Dalto Duarte for trainer Rafael Solanes) defeated Hunka Hunka (Wild Event-Uff-uff, by De Quest) & Perichole (Fahim-Voile D'or, by Effervescing). Olympic Message took her record to 5 wins (also including last month's Brazil Gr3 Grande Premio Roger Guedon over 1600m at Gavea, plus both 2010's Gr2 Grande Premio Carlos Telles E Carlos Gilberto Da Rocha Faria over 2000m at Gavea & Gr3 Premio Joao Adhemar E Nelson De Almeida Prado over 1600m at Gavea) & a runner-up (in 2010's Brazil Gr1 Grande Premio Linneo de Paula Machado-Grande Criterium over 2000m at Gavea) from 7 starts.
