Parx Racing Racetrack: Mc Kinzie is crowned in the Pennsilvania Derby

The American copy adds to his record of victory, Saturday, in one of the most popular races in the United States.
The three-year-old Mc Kinzie turned yesterday Saturday 22 into the winner of the Pennsilvania race Derby, celebrated in the race course of Parx Racing (Philadelphia, the United States). Trained by Bob Baffert and riding the American jockey Mike Smith, he managed to cross the finish line in a time of 1.52.05.

The second position corresponded to Axelrod, ridden by Joe Bravo, while the third classified was Trigger Warning with the riding of Irwin J. Rosendo. Hofburg (Irad Ortiz Jr.) and Core Beliefs (Joseph Talamo) finished fourth and fifth. The Pennsilvania Derby is an important race recently classified in Group 1 (only 3 years ago that it rose in the classification), and that has a route of 1,800 meters. The test, highly anticipated every year in Philadelphia, has an important economic endowment that reaches one million dollars.

The afternoon seemed to smile to Mike Smith who had already triumphed in the previous race, the Cotillion Stakes, also classified in Group 1. This time the jockey rode Midnight Bisou who crossed the finish line in first place in just 1.45. 95 Monomoy Girl (with Florent Geroux) and Wonder Garot (with John R. Velázquez) qualified in second and third position.

In total there were thirteen races that took place yesterday within what is known as Pennsylvania Derby & Cotillion Day, an intense day of turf where the sport mixes with shows and activities, and that has become over the years in one of the most important turf events in the end of summer.
