Orientate's Queen Pasion wins second stake of 2012


Saturday, July 14, 2012 |
Continuing to build on a very good year, the 5-year-old Orientate mare Queen Pasion won her fourth race in seven starts, and second black-type event of 2012 in the $103,000 National Production Classic H. (L) July 13 at San Isidro racetrack in Argentina.

Queen Pasion, piloted by regular rider Jorge Ricardo, withstood the late charge of Peluca Fizz and Stormy Reinada to win by a nose and a neck in a blanket finish. The winner finished the 1,000 meters (about five furlongs) in :56.29 seconds over a grass course rated “heavy”.

Queen Pasion was bred in Kentucky by La Pasion America from the Grand Slam mare Queen Maya. She is a half-sister to Wood Memorial (G1) winner Buddha and the listed stakes winner Wild Hoots.

Orientate's seven stakes horses of 2012 have earned black type in the United States, Mexico, Argentina, and Canada, where River Rush set a new nine furlong track record of 1:48.97 in the Plate Trial S. June 3 at Woodbine.
