Manyuz won the Latin American Equestrian Grand Prix

From wire to wire and with a lead of two and a half lengths, Manyuz won the Latin American Grand Prix. Ridden by Carlos Trujillo, the horse with national colors defended the undefeated Peruvian team at home in this event and gave the country its tenth victory in the so-called America’s Cup of horse racing, which yesterday celebrated its 40th edition, with its return to Peruvian territory after a decade.

In the 2,000 meters of dirt at the Monterrico Racecourse, Manyuz started from starter 2 and after a good start from Daktari from Chile, the Peruvian took the lead for the first corner and did not let go again, despite the fact that in the final stretch he had the ‘attack’ of Don’t lose time over the railing.

And it was the podium painted red and white, with Don’t lose (Carlos Javier Herrera) time in second place and Cófrade (Roy Melgarejo) in third.

Manyuz is a specimen born in the United States owned by Omar Macchi, has Juan Suárez in the preparation and belongs to the Jet Set stud. “The horse was very good, he became strong at the beginning but then we started to pick up nicely. “I dedicate this victory to Omar, who was looking for an international title,” commented rider Carlos Trujillo, dedicating the title to the owner, who had previously achieved three second places.
