Cisne Branco Wins Brazil Gr1 Derby Carioca
Also in Brazil, unbeaten Argentine-bred colt Cisne Branco (Lode-Cirandinha, by Ibero) maintained his perfect record with victory in Brazil's Gr1 Grande Premio Cruzeiro Do Sul-Derby Carioca (2400m on turf) for 3YOs at Gavea. Cisne Branco (ridden by Marcos Mazini for trainer Roberto Morgado Neto) defeated fellow colt Anakin (Crimson Tide-Dear Mommy, by Roi Normand) & the filly Hunka Hunka (Wild Event-Uff-uff, by De Quest). Cisne Branco took his record to 4 wins (also including March's Brazilian Gr1 Grande Premio Francisco Eduardo De Paula Machado over 2000m at Gavea) from 4 starts.
