Filly to extend winning streak

    IN-FORM performer Latin America will be out to extend her winning streak at the Hippodrome 3R tonight.

    Having won her four starts this term, Latin America has been a constant improver, with driver Stephane Brosseau predicting more to come from the filly.

    The daughter of Cantab Hall has remarkably improved her team at each start.

    While not eligible for the upcoming Quebec-Bred Series, Latin America has to grind it out week-in, week-out, usually against older competition.

    The three-year-old will come out of gate three this time around.

    Purchased as a yearling for $35,000 by Jeff Gillies, Latin America did not fare well as a two-year-old, which saw her limited to six starts by trainer Carl Duguay.

    The spell seems to have done Latin America wonders as proven by her impressive streak.

    “She is racing against too tough of a bunch right now,” Brosseau said. “But she looks pretty decent. She has got speed and a real nice trot.”

    On the strength of her first three outings this time in, Latin America was purchased by Les Ecuries Dorleans, Inc. and Gestion Levesque, which saw her transferred to trainer Jacques DuPont.

    In her debut for the new crew, Latin America led throughout in 2:02.3.

    “She does not want to make a break,” Brosseau said. “She seems very sound right now and no problems.”
