Sorrentino Wins Brazil Gr1 Ipiranga
Also in Brazil, fellow juvenile Gr1-winning colt Sorrentino (Wild Event-Bukebele, by Punk) added another Gr1 triumph with a 2-lengths victory in his 3YO debut in the Gr1 Grande Premio Ipiranga (opening leg of Sao Paulo's Quadruple Crown for 3YO males) over 1600m on turf at Cidada Jardim. Sorrentino (ridden by Jose Aparecido Da Silva for trainer Luiz Roberto Feltran) defeated stable-mate colt Skypilot (Put It Back-Ilang-ilang, by Tokatee) & fellow colt Reg Red (Redattore-Regal Scot, by Bin Ajwaad). As a juvenile in June, Sorrentino also won Brazil's Gr1 Grande Premio Joja Adhemar De Almeida Prado (1600m) at Gavea & overall now has 4 wins (plus placings in both April's Gr2 Grande Premio Antenor Lara Campos over 1500m on turf at Cidade Jardim & February's Gr3 Clasico Presidente Augusto De Souza over 1200m at Cidade Jardim) from 6 starts.
