Adlerflug Wins German Gr1 Deutschland Preis

Monday, 21st July 2008

In Germany overnight, last year's Gr1 German Derby-winning 4YO entire Adlerflug (In The Wings-Aiyana, by Last Tycoon) blitzed his rivals by 7-lengths in the €155,000 (A$264,000) Gr1 Deutschland Preis (2400m) at Dusseldorf. Gestut Schelenderhahn home-bred Adlerflug (ridden by Fredrik Johansson for trainer Jens Hirschberger) defeated globe-trotting multiple Gr1-winning 6YO gelding Quijano (Acatenango-Quila, by Unfuwain) with a further 6-lengths back to Gr2-winning 5YO entire It's Gino (Perugino-Imelda, by Lomitas). At his previous start Adlerflug finished 3rd in last month's German Gr2 Idee Hansa-Preis (2200m) at Hamburg; & last season he won the Gr1 Deutsches Derby (2400m) at Hamburg, as well as finishing runner-up against older rivals in Germany's Gr1 Grosser Preis Von Baden (2400m) at Baden-Baden & winning the Listed Neie Bult Fruhjahrspreis (2200m) at Hannover.
