Dual Derby-winning shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Darshaan) added an Italian black-type success when Irish-bred 4YO entire Lord Chaparral (High Chaparral-Freccia D'oro, by Acatenango) scored a half-length victory in the €50,400 (A$69,000) Listed Premio Villa Borghese (2000m) at the Capannelle to take this race for the 2nd successive year. Lord Chaparral (ridden by Mirco Demuro for trainer Roberto Brogi) defeated UK-bred 6YO entire Permesso (Sakhee-Persian Filly, by Persian Bold) & fellow 4YO entire Delrock (Rock Of Gibraltar-Delicia, by Acatenango).
