Castilian shone in the Vosburgh Stakes

The Venezuelan rider Javier Castellano once again displayed his skills as a rider by winning the Vosburgh Stakes, a classic Grade 1, endowed with a $ 303.000 global prize, played at a distance of 1.200 meters, in the arena of the Belmont racecourse, New York.

From the initial meters he was fighting for first place with Firenze Fire, led by Irad Ortiz Jr. in 22.11 sets for the first 400 meters, 44.65 for the 800 and 56.19 for the 1.000 meters.

In the final stretch he braided a strong duel with his tenacious rival and achieved the victory by margin of nose in time of 1.08.35 for 1.200 meters.

Daughter of American Pharoah

That was not all for the outstanding Zulian rider, who in the following race showed off with the debutant Princess Caroline, a two-year-old filly daughter of American Pharoah in Sacre Coeur.

He brought it in intermediate positions and in the final stretch he took the first place to finish winning by a margin of 3 and a half lengths in time of 1.41.67 for 1.700 meters.

At the closing of this edition, the results of two races remained to be known, the tenth where the Jockey Club Gold Cup Stakes was held and the eleventh where Javier had a couple of commitments.
