At San Isidro in Argentina, former Coolmore shuttler Orpen (Lure-Bonita Francita, by Devil's Bag) added a Gr1 success when 3YO colt Koller (Orpen-Korea, by Southern Halo) scored impressively by 5-lengths for trainer J. Martins Alves in the Gr1 Dos Mil Guineas (1600m) for 3YO colts, over fellow colts Zapata (Hat Trick-Zeta, by You And I) & Matrero Inc (Include-Stormy Matrix, by Bernstein). This was Koller's maiden Gr1 win and took his record to 2 wins & 2 placings (including the Gr1 G.P. Estrellas Juvenile) from 4 starts for ARG311,300 earnings.
