Third Grade One Winner for Shanghai Bobby
Shanghai Bobby is enjoying a hot run in South America adding a third Grade I winner to his tally with a commanding victory in the Grade I Gavea G.P. Joao Adhemar de Almeida Prado in Brazil on the weekend for Lamartine (3c Shanghai Bobby x Dica, by Ghadeer).
A homebred for Stud Eternamente Rio prepared by L. Esteves, Lamartine ran away to win the 1600 metre turf feature by three and a half lengths.
The lightly raced colt has two wins and a third from just four starts and is a half-brother to 2016/2017 Champion 2YO Colt of Brazil Jadir.
He is from the good producer Dica, who has left seven winners.
Lamartine is the 11th stakes-winner for Shanghai Bobby and is his third Grade I winner in Brazil from his first Southern Hemisphere bred crop.
