Quinta Doubles Up
11 Feb 2010The Pencarrow racing team chalked up another winner yesterday when Quinta De Lago (Encosta De Lago x Slip Sliding, by Thunder Gulch) made it two wins in a row at Te Awamutu.

The Rating 80 Te Awamutu Club 1580 (1580m) drew a field of 10 competitors with Quinta De Lago favoured by punters after his two length romp last time out at Rotorua.

The punters clearly had it spot on as James McDonald steered the four-year-old son of Encosta De Lago to a three length victory over Downloaded (Catcher in the Rye) and Viduka (Cape Cross).

Having not finished further back than fourth this season, Quinta De Lago has developed into a very progressive galloper moving through the grades and his three length victory after stepping up in grade must be very encouraging for his owners Peter and Philip Vela, Trevor Farmer, and Mark Wyborn.

With three wins from 1580m – 2100m now on good to fast surfaces, Quinta De Lago should be easily placed for races carrying serious stake-money over the Auckland Cup Carnival period.

Quinta De Lago is out of Slip Sliding, herself a half-sister to Group 1 winning racehorse and sire Dehere.
