Recognition of horse racing to Juan Arias

In the eighth race tomorrow, a classic is run that bears his name

This Sunday in the eighth Sunday race, recognition is given to Juan Arias, a Venezuelan trainer that we remember thanks to his work and perseverance, with which he managed to earn a place in the national horse racing.

Juan was in charge of presenting the horse Cañonero in full form at the 1971 Kentucky Derby, achieving an international triumph of great importance for Venezuelan horse racing.

Last Saturday, with the success of Venezuelan jockey Sonny León in the Derby, we remembered the feat accomplished by Juan Arias with Cañonero in 1971, when the colt then won the race ridden by Gustavo Ávila.

Juan Arias was also photographed with Cañonero in the Preakness Stakes of that year 1971, in a race that was an example of brilliant driving by Gustavo Ávila.
The INH tribute to Juan Arias is more than deserved.

The aspirants

Seven horses will take part in the test, since El Dorado was withdrawn, due to Tendinitis in the right forelimb.

Bravucón, who is a phenomenal runner, is a logical card to victory, since he comes from a fifth in the 2021 Cañonero Classic; a third in the Clásico Hylander, a fourth place in the Clásico José María Vargas and a second in the batch of winners of 2 and 3 races.

It will again be led by the apprentice rider Jaime Lugo Jr., with whom he has just performed. He is presented by Fernando Parilli Tota.

The Brother Slew, who has been owing a good performance to the fans, as a result of his victory in the 2019 Caribbean Classic, may well achieve the third victory of his campaign on this occasion, since he got a good track position and the lot does not seem so demanding for him. He will be guided by Álvaro Finol, with whom he came fourth, seven lengths behind Papa Pedro in the Clásico Presidente de la República.

Templario, with a recent third in the tribute race to Federico Carmona Perera, is a good set. He has two thirds, two firsts and one second in his recent 5 races. It will be led by Jonathan Aray and presented by Luis Peraza, in an important selection.
