Wiener Walzer Wins Gr1 German Derby
In Germany, 3YO colt Wiener Walzer (Dynaformer-Walzerkoenigin, by Kingmambo) scored his 18th victory when winning the €500,000 (A$877,500) Gr1 Deutsches Derby (2400m) for 3YOs at Hamburg. German-bred Wiener Walzer (ridden by Fredrik Johansson for trainer Jens Hirschberger) won by 1.25 lengths, defeating fellow colts Sordino (Samum-Serenata, by Lomitas) and Toughness Danon (Tiger Hill-Templerin, by Acatenango). This is the second time Hirschberger and Johansson have teamed up to win the German Derby, having won with Adlerflug in 2007.
