MY FUNNY GOLD, one of those specimens that thrills due to the ease with which they gain ground after giving a great advantage in the first few meters, is now a classic winner to the satisfaction of its owners, the Tavares brothers and Freddy León, another success for the maestro Antonio Bellardi who always said he it was a stakes winner and whose 5th dam, FOREST SONG, is the same 4th dam of MY OWN BUSINESS, the historical champion he had in his care.
Beautiful chestnut by THUNDER RIDGE and maternal granddaughter of TAPIT who gets along very well with the rider Arnaldo Chirinos and is the 6th classic winner of the year at Haras Los Caracaros. Antonio also won with COMBINATION another of Los Caracaros that with everything and the open managed to impose himself, a horse that received him 7-0 without figurations and with the sum of 2 first and 4 figurations.

Sad week for equestrian communicators with the departure, first of Virgilio Decán (Aly Khan) (1931-2022), the most famous equestrian narrator in Venezuela with whom we worked in the period 1977-1985 as a commentator and forecaster in his spaces both on radio ( Radio Rumbos) and on television (Radio Caracas TV – Venezolana de Televisión).
I remember when they introduced me to "In the name of Brandy Martell, pure grape, pure brandy, pure Martell" the comments of José Luis... Then our partner of more than 50 years left Iván Roa (1949-2022), renowned equestrian forecaster journalist, with a successful career , with great knowledge of the activity, widely known and respected in the trade. Ivan's daughter is named Ivanova after her father and Aly Khan's daughter is named Ivanova; I remember that Iván was my guest on Último Minuto Hípico on RCTV when his daughter was born, a matter that I mentioned to Aly Khan before starting the program and they were both impressed by such a coincidence and they stayed talking about it until they told us “Let's go on the air ”. Our condolences to all his relatives.
Regarding Iván, it is also worth remembering his participation in radio for a long time in the program Galopando en el 5y6 by Luis Rafael Carrillo, in which Eduardo Rodríguez Giolitti was also participating.
