José Carlos Fragoso Pires Júnior is the breeder, between great cracks, of Riboletta, Redattore, Super Power and Magnum Opus (Amarildo brothers, with the same father, the leader many times of the statistics, Roi Normand), Bowling, Carteziano, Falcon Jet, and many other exceptional and famous horses that belong to our international history. Riboletta and Redattore won together almost 4 million dollar in price money, only counting in USA (and without to count in theirs own and common land Brazil or Canada where the total together was much more), most because the stallion Roi Normand (the father of our Amarildo), died the year 2007, that was also own by José Carlos Fragoso Pires Júnior, responsible for the importation of this fantastic sire. Roi Normand best product, Riboletta, also won the "Eclipse Award", year 2000 in the USA, as the best mare in USA and being unanimous "Number 1" in the world in the official list of "The International Cataloguing Standards" from the "International Federation of Horse Racing Authorities", in January 2001.

MY PRINCE, THE CRACK FROM BAEPENDI STUD


MY PRINCE, from our "Baependi Stud", being successful in the photo above, winning easily "The Great Mile" in the same day of the "GRANDE PRÊMIO BRASIL" ("Brazilian Great Prize")! The year was 1953. At that time, in the absence of the "International Mile", it was the test most important in this classic and noble distance! The consecration of a great race-horse of quality! Without the minimum doubt, after the "Grande Prêmio Brasil", the test most selective of the program and that currently it would be the "International Mile" and obviously classified as Group 1! The day most important of the year and, at the same time, the mile most important of the international week! In this glorious day, MY PRINCE defeated great runners as EGEU, GOLD DREAM, MONT ROYAL, PASSE PARTOUT, RONCADOR and many other horses of unquestionable qualities, at the time recognized as the decade of gold, not only in the turf, but for all the country, popularly acclaimed as "the golden years".

The fantastic pedigree of My Prince, complete until the fifth generation and much more victories and photos, to consult link that follows: MY PRINCE, THE CRACK FROM BAEPENDI STUD.

In this race, just in his debut, SIR TOBY gave a potential demonstration, after having a very bad start, came back in the race for to win very easy and comfortable. He beat colts and fillies in one "Animation Stakes" for 2 years old showing to be really a promise! Sir Toby needed to give only little of his capacity in his first start, with lot of things against, as the distance and in the dirt track (he proved always to be much better on the turf). Anyway, even with important conditions against his characteristics, to win in his debut with great style, beating, between very good colts and fillies, the future classic horse Cedro, mounted by the greatest legend of the golden years, the magic jockey Luiz Rigoni, in one stake race for 2 years old, was more than we could dream in that time! All this details are more significant because was just in Gávea Racetrack, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the more competitive, specially when Rio de Janeiro still was the capital of the country. The date we never can forget was 8 May 1955. The interesting and curious is that SIR TOBY coasted 10 times less at the yearling action than Cedro, that was easily beat by SIR TOBY as the photo show clearly.

- HORSES BORN AND BRED IN BRAZIL -

- XX CENTURY -

FINAL CLASSIFICATION OF THE 200 BEST HORSES FROM BRAZIL

BY LUIZ EDUARDO LAGES

LUIZ EDUARDO LAGES was the first, after a very long time of studies, to publish one selection, with the classification of the best horses born and bred in Brazil in the last century! But, he did even more, selected 200 products from Brazil that started in the XX century, without doubt, the more important in our development and evolution on the turf! His final result is also considerate by many people around the world, the most a person can do in this question, including a perfect analyse, very well detailed in this very difficult case, the comparable of qualities between legends from the XX century! But, Lages never included a simple sympathy, and should not answer in some short moments, like so many people use and like to do. This needs very much more time than to answer with a simple opinion, like so many turfmen have the vicious to do. LAGES RANKING about horses from Brazil, is a serious work, after many years of intensive investigation, a really research with all types of inquires, from just a person neutral and that never played one simple cent in racehorses for to not lose the power to be able to judge! His work, after all kinds of observations and studies was the first and always was the more easy to be acceptable in Brazil and by another international experts around the world. Only this fact, proves very well why his site "Lages Homepage" is so popular with the racing people all over the globe and his list the only published for serious sites in the Internet, magazines and newspapers, in all different mediums, from all type of turfs and countries, in all the five continents! The text, as always in this site, was written by me, LUIZ EDUARDO LAGES, this time about myself and the serious work, gaining lot of reputation like results, when was the first to do one list about the best horses from last century! Sorry my missing of modesty, but those things is really facts! And when is so, like all the really facts, no one can contest!
It's very different than another sites and all the publications that make question to write and say when they inquire people about the best horses, even without any kind of science or demand explanation.
In our site Lages Homepage the opinions is based on science and proved with results! Otherwise any kind or sort of opinions does not have scientific value!
In Lages Homepage, the facts are facts!

That is how the city of Rio de Janeiro is known all over the world.
