G3 win for 2YO LOPE DE VEGA colt LA BARROSA at Newmarket

LA BARROSA, who is racing in Godolphin's royal blue colours, continued his sire LOPE DE VEGA's successful streak in two-year-old performances with a great win in today's G3 Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket. Even though it was only the second career start following his easy debut win at Ascot three weeks ago, the colt showed plenty of fighting spirit in the 1400m race and secured a three quarter of a length advantage at the post with William Buick in the saddle for trainer Charles Appleby.
