In South America, last season’s Brazilian Champion 2YO Filly Alta Vista (Amigoni-Bella Cy, by Belo Colony) scored by a head in Brazil’s Gr1 Gran Premio Diana (2000m on turf) for 3YO fillies at Cidade Jardim in Sao Paulo. Alta Vista (ridden by Luiz Duarte for trainer Amilton Aquino Farias) defeated Ultimate Heights (Know Heights-Ontemhojesempre, by Vettori) & US-bred In The Stars (Romarin-Miss Dance, by Dance Bid).
