Juan Reviriego, who trained Argentine Group 1 winners Lady Sprinter and Fitz Flag and trained in California from 2004-’09, is campaigning a small stable of horses at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., for the Spring/Summer Meet
Reviriego, who saddled Lady Sprinter for a start in the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (G1), saddled Meteorito ($2.60) for a victory in Sunday’s first race for Charlotte Racing Stable while notching his third winner of the meet.
A third-generation trainer, Reviriego galloped horses for Hall of Fame trainer Horatio Luro’s stable and worked at Chantilly before going back to his native country in 1974. He became a leading trainer with horses like triple Group 1 winner Poitiers in 1975-76.
Reviriego, whose horses are stable at Palm Meadows Training Center, has returned to training for the first time since 2009. Ironically, his last starters before this spring came in South Florida, where he saddled Lady Sprinter for a sixth-place finish in June of that year in the $75,000 U Can Do It Handicap at Calder Race Course.
