Ollagua Wins Argentina Gr1 Estrellas Distaff
Also in Argentina, 3YO filly Ollagua (Pure Prize-Open Secrets, by West By West) similarly scored a 4-lengths victory over her older rivals in the Gr1 Gran Premio Estrellas Distaff (2000m on turf) for fillies & mares at Hipodromo San Isidro. Ollagua (ridden by Francisco Corrales for trainer Jose Alves Martins) defeated 4YO mares Potri Check (Potrillon-Check Request, by Sovereign Dancer) & Green Pet (Interprete-Green Dancing, by Believe It). Ollagua took her record to 7 wins (also including last month's Gr1 Gran Premio Comparacion over 2000m at Palermo, March's Gr2 Clasico Arturo Bullrich over 2000m at Palermo & January's Gr2 Clasico Juan Shaw over 2200m at San Isidro, plus 2008's Gr1 Gran Premio Enrique Acebal over 2000m at San Isidro) & a runner-up (in April's Gr1 Gran Premio Gilberto Lerena over 2000m at Palermo) from 10 starts.
