Orpen Adds Argentina Gr3

Thursday, 22nd April 2010

In Argentina, former Coolmore shuttler Orpen (Lure-Bonita Francita, by Devil's Bag) added a group success (& 3rd-placing) when 3YO filly Orpen Fain (Orpen-Fina Halo, by Southern Halo) scored a 1-length victory in the Gr3 Clasico Asociacion De Propietarios De Caballos De Carrera (1400m) for fillies & mares at Palermo in Buenos Aires. Orpen Fain (ridden by Edwin Talaverano for trainer Juan Carlos Etchechoury) defeated fellow 3YO fillies Placida (Equal Stripes-Piacenteria, by Payant) & True Passion (Orpen-Tolerada, by Fitzcarraldo). Last year Orpen Fain also won Argentina's Gr3 Clasico Manuel Guiraldes (1400m) at Palermo, as well as placing in both the Gr1 Gran Premio Estrellas Juvenile Fillies (1600m) at San Isidro & Gr2 Clasico General Luis Maria Campos (1600m) at Palermo.
