From the sound of the bells, the pensioner of Alvaro Noboa’s stud went out to break through his adversaries, followed closely by Monopoly who together with Toddler sought to harass the pointer, while Argenis and Cariñosito closed the troop.
For the first 400 meters, Monopoly snatched the point from Alcindoro, while Toddler and Argenis looked for their best opportunity to run over, but Monopoly was only for the moment enjoying the lead, because Alcindoro returned to the post before the final corner.
