In the last two years, has been really impressive the amount of new stallions of the highest caliber who have entered the country. Some, incorporated into our breeding by haras of tradition already established. But most of them are part of the dynamic and very ambitious project of new farms that have emerged wanting to improve-mostly-and increase the level of national thoroughbred.
Acquiring a quality horse BORREGO (2001, Chestnut, El Prado (Ire) - Sweet as Honey, by Strike the Gold) is a clear reflection of this. A son of El Prado , the Sadler's Wells more "Americanized" that may have been present, which reached victories in two events of great historical weight in horse racing in the United States, as the Jockey Club Gold Cup (Gr 1) in New York -defeating Suave and Sun King - and the Pacific Classic S. (Gr. 1) California-beating Perfect Drift and Lava Man - both racing a million dollars and 2000 meters in sand, which ran the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, which totaled more than $ 2,000,000 in profits, and who already has children in the United States have produced, to date, more than 1.6 million, it seems, by all accounts, an acquisition of great significance for our breeding.
