SENSACIONALE Becomes Newest Graded Stakes Winner
Having placed in four Graded Blacktype races heading into this one, SENSACIONALE finally got a win taking the Santorin – Augusto Maggiolo Cavenecia-G3 by 4 1/2 lengths becoming the seventh Graded stakes horse for BROKEN VOW this year. This consistent 5-year-old raced in fourth position for the first six furlongs of this 1 5/8-mile turf event. Moving up to be only two lengths off the lead down the backstretch, SENSACIONALE began his rally on the final turn, drew even with the leader with a furlong to go and out finished that one to pull away and get the victory at Hipodromo De Monterrico, Peru. He won the Blacktype Laredo S. this past December and has won at distances from 6 1/2 furlongs to 1 5/8 miles. Out of the MARIA’S MON mare Maria’s Quest, SENSACIONALE sold as a weanling at the 2012 Keeneland November Sale as part of the second phase of the complete dispersal of Kennelot Stables, Lane’s End, agent. Lifetime record: 21-7-3-4, 116,281 sol. O-Stud Harem. B-Kennelot Stables. T-Alfonso Arias Rodriguez.
