Veteran Mack Grace SM and teamster Roberto Andreghetti won tonight’s co-featured Gran Premio Due Marie at Taranto, Italy for a €45,100 purse event over 1600 meters autostart.
The son of CC’s Chuckie T scored easily in 1.11.8kr over Louvre and reinsman Federico Esposito. Andreghetti remarked post-race that he had lost count of the number of Gran Prix events Mack Grace SM had won in his storied career.
On the same card the companion event for four-year-olds (Gran Premio Citt di Taranto, €45,100, 1600 meters autostart) also went to Andreghetti aboard Ribot Ek in a sharp 1.11.3kr, a new record for the course.
The winner defeated Radiofreccia FI with Esposito up. Ribot Ek is a four year son of Varenne from Gianna di Jesolo by Diamond Way.
