Rancho San Antonio sired 2 year-olds are off to a sensational start in 2014 with all 4 of the Dominican Republic’s 2yo races to-date having been won smartly by progeny of our stallions in their racecourse debut. Another remarkable fact is that all 4 winners are by different stallions and all but one were bred and offered at auction by RSA.
The talented group debut winners comprises:
- Gotica de Miel: 2yo filly (Tango Tales – Odalsi, by Shooped). Heavily favored in her debut and she definitely lived up to the hype and demolished the field by 23 lengths. Bred by RSA and owned by Osiris Bautista. She is a half-sister to leading older horse El Menor (Rationalexuberance) and sired by fantastic sire Tango Tales (Tale of the Cat).
