Soy Carambolo aims for Breeders' Cup Marathon berth Friday in Argentina


On Friday in Argentina, Soy Carambolo is a leading contender in the Group 1 Premio Clasico General Belgrano over about 1 9/16 miles. The Clasico Belgrano offers a fees-paid berth to the Breeders' Cup Marathon at Santa Anita in November.

In 2012, Calidoscopio won the Clasico Belgrano and pulled a 17-1 upset in the Marathon. Dream Storm, second to Calidoscopio last year, is part of this year’s Clasico Belgrano, which drew a field of 15.

Soy Carambolo was second in the Group 1 Gran Premio 25 de Mayo in Argentina in May.
