Morralete was the surprise in the best rented

The horse that Jaime Lugo rode achieved his seventh victory in the oval of La Rinconada

Practically from end to end and leading by a length and a quarter, Morralete surprised in the best-paid race on Sunday at the La Rinconada Hippodrome and, with that performance, he won the entry in the Clásico Presidente de la República next month. .

From the moment the start was ordered, the steed ridden by Jaime "Pocho" Lugo and presented by Germán Rojas, went out to look for the first positions attached to the inside rail, pressured from the outside by Papa Pedro, while the favorite Mattery was located in third place ahead of Ironhide and Baby José.

With a strong fight for first place between Morralete and Papá Pedro, in a race that was reduced to three copies, they passed in 24"4, the first 400 meters and 49"3, was the record for the half mile, with Mattery located in the third place.
