Juan C Villagra: G1 double at San Isidro in Argentina on Pinball Wizard and Hole In One

+20 Juan Cruz Villagra

Some big moves in South America this week after a showpiece card at San Isidro in Argentina, where jockey Juan Cruz Villagra (+20pt, #182 from #405) landed a G1 double.

After scoring a five-length win on the five-year-old Pinball Wizard (+64, #80 from #169) in GP Copa de Oro, Villagra followed up just over an hour later on Hole In One in the GP San Isidro.

Feature race at the Buenos Aires venue was the Gran Premio Jockey Club, the second leg of the Argentine Triple Crown. The 1m2f turf event went to Marignac under jockey Adrian Giannetti (+11pt, #109 from #162).

Things are winding down at the end of the European season but Richard Kingscote (+11pt, #104 from #147) popped over the Channel on Saturday for a couple of Group-race wins on heavy ground at Chantilly with Lullaby Moon and Brad The Brief. The latter’s trainer Tom Dascombe (+6pt, #194 from #242) also makes a little move.
