Quijano Wins German Gr1 Grosser Von Baden

Monday, 3rd September 2007

On the German track overnight, 5YO gelding Quijano (Acatenango-Quila, by Unfuwain) grabbed victory by a neck in Germany's premier all-aged race, the €250,000 (A$400,000) Gr1 Grosser Preis Von Baden (2400m) at Baden-Baden. Quijano (ridden by Andrasch Starke for trainer Peter Schiergen) defeated this season's Gr1 German Derby-winning 3YO colt Adlerflug (In The Wings-Aiyana, by Last Tycoon) & 6YO entire Egerton (Groom Dancer-Enrica, by Niniski). Quijano (a winner in Dubai earlier this year) now boasts 12 wins overall; his sire Acatenango won this race in both 1986 & 1987.
