Mon Gateau, an elegant gray filly by Blueformer - Mandeville, by Langfhur led a game field of 2yo fillies and resisted the late challenge of Dominicana Soy to win gamely in the Clasico de Criadores Version Potrancas-G1. The filly, bred by RSA and owned by Establo Aurora, gave her owners Ramon Contreras, Ricardo Contreras and Cesar Prieto their first stakes victory.
Mon Gateau was challenged throughout by Prodigia and ran splits 23.2, 46.4, 1:12.2 and stopped the timer in a sharp 1:26.4. Prodigia was trying to soften the winner for late closing runner-up stablemate Dominicana Soy but held on to a 3/4 length margin at the wire. She was guided to victory by Odalis Severino, runs in the colors of Establo Aurora and is trained by Eugenio Deschamps and Juan Jimenez.
