Ultimo Furo Wins Brazil Gr1 Estado Do Rio
In South America, the colt Ultimo Furo (American Gipsy-Informal Dress, by Clackson) scored a 3.5-lengths victory over 13 rivals in Brazil's Gr1 Grande Premio Estado do Rio de Janeiro (1600m on turf) for 3YO males at Hipodromo La Gavea in Rio de Janeiro. Haras Anderson home-bred Ultimo Furo (ridden by Marcos Mazini for trainer Adelcio Menegolo) defeated fellow colts Conclusivo (Neleo-Unorvilena, by Norwegian) & Materia Prima (Mensageiro Alado-Freak Lady, by Roi Normand). Ultimo Furo took his record to 2 wins & 4 runners-up (including last month's Gr3 Grande Premio Jose Buarque De Macedo over 1600m at Gavea & 2010's Gr3 Premio Mario De Azevedo Ribeiro over 1400m at Gavea) from 6 starts.
