Also in Argentina, 3YO filly Malibu Queen (Bernstein-Malinche, by Lode) scored a 2-lengths victory over her older rivals in the Gr1 Gran Premio Criadores (2000m) for fillies & mares at Palermo. Malibu Queen (ridden by Juan Carlos Noriega for trainer Juan Maldotti) defeated Peruvian-bred mare Almudena (Silver Planet-Fire Legend, by Engrillado) & fellow 4YO mare Catch The Mad (Catcher In The Rye-Crazy Wells, by Poliglote). Malibu Queen took her record to 6 wins (also including April's Gr1 Gran Premio Gilberto Lerena over 2000m at Palermo & March's Gr2 Clasico Arturo Bullrich over 2000m at Palermo, plus 2011's Gr2 Clasico Francisco Beazley over 1800m at Palermo) & 3 placings (including 2011's Gr1 Clasico Seleccion De Potrancas over 2000m at La Plata) from 11 starts.
