Pechito Wins Peru Gr1 Zevallos

Wednesday, 22nd October 2008

In South America, Argentine-bred colt Pechito (Interprete-La Cosecha, by Octante) blitzed his rivals by 5-lengths in Peru's Gr1 Clasico Ricardo Ortiz de Zevallos (2000m & 2nd leg of the Peruvian Quadruple Crown for 3YOs) at Hipodromo de Monterrico in Lima. Pechito (ridden by Hector Berrios for trainer Felix Banda) defeated fellow Argentine-bred colt Deboleto (Flirteador-Flip Lady, by Candy Stripes) & locally-bred favoured colt Interoceanico (Privately Held-India Brava, by Fast Gold). Pechito's dam La Cosecha is a full-sister to 1994-1995 Argentine champion 3YO male & 2-time Argentine Horse-Of-The-Year El Sembrador. Last month Pechito finished runner-up in Peru's G1 Clasico Polla de Potrillos (Peruvian 2000 Guineas) & overall he now has 3 wins & a 2nd from 5 starts.
