Ramiro Restrepo and Gustavo Delgado Sr. had a budget in mind when they went to the Fasing-Tipton Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale. They were looking for a horse that could compete in the Kentucky Derby. They found Mage, a colt that finished second in the Florida Derby. Restrepo knew he had to have him and broke his budget to acquire him.
Mage was trained by Gustavo Delgado and ridden by Javier Castellano. On Saturday night, May 6, 2023, Mage won the 149th running of the Kentucky Derby. The horse is owned by OGMA investments, Ramiro Restrepo, Sterling Racing, and CMNWLTH.
Restrepo is a part-owner of Mage, and he discussed his "obsession" for racing and what led him to acquire the horse in an interview. He said that he has loved horse racing since he was a child and that he always dreamed of owning a horse that could compete in the Kentucky Derby.
Restrepo said that Mage's progress has been remarkable since he arrived at Churchill Downs. He has been training hard for the race, and Restrepo has quiet confidence in him. He believes that Mage has what it takes to win.
Thinking about placing a wager on the Kentucky Derby? How about betting on one with a Key Biscayne connection, Ramiro Restrepo? He is a University of Miami graduate and a part-owner of Mage.
Mage has won the Kentucky Derby, and Restrepo and Delgado are no doubt celebrating from Miami all the way to Venezuela. This is a big win for them and for the horse racing community.
Restrepo's success in horse racing is a testament to his passion, determination, and hard work. He has always dreamed of owning a horse that could compete in the Kentucky Derby, and now that dream has become a reality.
In addition to Mage, Restrepo has other horses in his stable, and he is always looking for talented young horses to add to his collection. He is a true horse racing enthusiast, and his success in the sport is a reflection of his dedication and love for the horses.
Restrepo's story is an inspiration to anyone who has a dream and is willing to work hard to make it a reality. His passion for horse racing has led him to great success, and he is a true role model for anyone who wants to achieve their goals in life.
