Verrazano Gets First Winner In Chile

Verrazano posted his first winner anywhere in the world on Aug. 18 when Copia Ciega (Verrazano x Dharana, by Street Cry) scored an impressive debut victory at Hipodromo Chile in Santiago.

A homebred for Haras Dona Icha trained by Carlos Hernandez Urbina, she powered clear to win the five-furlong dirt maiden race by more than four lengths from a field of 14 starters.

Verrazano, an eight-year-old son of More Than Ready, stands at Ashford Stud in Versailles, Ky., for an advertised fee of $17,500. His six career victories include the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational Stakes and Wood Memorial, the G2 Tampa Bay Derby, and the G3 Pegasus Stakes.

Dharana was acquired by Haras Dona Icha for $40,000 out of Taylor Made Sales Agency’s consignment at the 2015 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, and was carrying Copia Ciega in utero when she was sold.

Verrazano shuttled for one season in 2015 to Australia where he will have two-year-old runners this season and has since gone to Chile for the past two Southern Hemisphere seasons.
