Tuesday, 3rd May 2011

Former shuttler Orpen (Lure-Bonita Francita, by Devil's Bag) added an Argentine Gr1 triumph when 4YO mare Malpensa (Orpen-Marsella, by Southern Halo) notched her 2nd successive Gr1 victory in a month when she blitzed her rivals by 9-lengths in the Gr1 Gran Premio Criadores (2000m) for fillies & mares at Palermo. Malpensa (ridden by Adrian Giannetti for trainer Juan Udaondo) defeated fellow 4YO mare Foggy Stripes (Equal Stripes-La Boira Baixa, by Gem Master) & 3YO filly Tradizione Slam (Grand Slam-Tradizione, by Forlitano). At her previous start on April 2, Malpensa similarly thrashed her rivals by 8-lengths in Argentina's Gr1 Gran Premio Gilberto Lerena (2000m) at Palermo. Overall she now boasts 5 wins (also including 2010's Gr1 Gran Premio Copa De Plata-Arquitecto Roberto Vasquez Mansilla over 2000m at San Isidro) & 9 placings (including March's Gr2 Clasico Arturo Bullrich over 2000m at Palermo, plus 2010's Gr1 Gran Premio Estrellas Distaff over 2000m at Palermo, Gr1 Gran Premio Criadores over 2000m at Palermo, Gr1 Gran Premio Gilberto Lerena over 2000m at Palermo, Gr2 Clasico Los Haras over 2000m at San Isidro & Gr3 Apertura-Copa Diario La Nacion over 2000m at Palermo, as well as 2009's Gr1 Gran Premio De Potrancas over 1600m at San Isidro, Gr1 Gran Premio Eliseo Ramirez over 1400m at San Isidro & Gr1 Gran Premio Saturnino Unzue over 1200m at Palermo) from 17 starts.
