One on One with Paulo Lobo heading into the Breeders’ Cup

October 25, 2021

This is one of the best Breeders’ Cup stories you will hear this year and that is true regardless of what happens on race day! It is more than a Breeders’ Cup story. It is the story of a man, his family, his character, and his horses.

Paulo Lobo is truly one of the great horse racing stories the Sport of Kings has produced. Paulo came from a family of trainers and honed his craft learning from his father back home and Bobby Frankel once he arrived in America.

It was Paulo’s dream to come to the United States to train, and shortly after he arrived he let the racing world know who he was and what he was capable of doing with the right horse when Farda Amiga won the 2002 Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks. She came back off a three and half month lay-off to win the Grade 1 Alabama Stakes at legendary Saratoga. After being here just about a year Paulo won the two most prestigious three-year old dilly races in the country. It was only the beginning.

Paulo added races like the stallion making Grade 1 Metropolitan Mile to his resume along with the Arkansas Derby, Oaklawn Handicap and more. Much more actually. It is not the resume or the wins that define Paulo. That you will have to see for yourself.

Paulo is heading into the Breeders’ Cup this year with some live horses like Imperador and In Love. With a little luck Ivar may get in as well.

You will not want to miss what it took to get here for Paulo and what he was willing to do to continue doing what he loves, training horses.
