Team Valor acquires standout miler from Uruguay


Team Valor and Richard Santulli have purchased Brujo de Olleros, a Uruguay-based standout miler who is scheduled to be imported to the U.S. on Feb. 20, according to a Team Valor release. Brujo de Olleros will join trainer Graham Motion’s stable at the Palm Meadows training center in Florida upon clearing quarantine.

Brujo de Olleros, a 4-year-old Brazilian-bred son of Wild Event, has won 4 of his 5 starts – all in Uruguay – including a track-record setting 14 1/4-length victory in his most recent race, the Group 1 Gran Premio Pedro Pineyrua at Maronas.

Barry Irwin, Team Valor’s CEO, named the Forego Stakes at Saratoga as a target race for Brujo de Olleros.
