Getaway Wins The Gr1 Deutschland Preis
In Germany overnight, German-bred 6YO entire Getaway (Monsun-Guernica, by Unfuwain) scored by 0.75-lengths in the €155,000 (A$272,700) Gr1 Deutschland Preis (2400m on turf) for 3YOs & up at Dusseldorf. Getaway (ridden by Stephen Hellyn for trainer Jens Hirschberger) defeated 4YO entire Flamingo Fantasy (Fantastic Light-Flamingo Road, by Acatenango) & 5YO entire Appel Au Maitre (Starborough-Rotina, by Crystal Glitters). Hellyn said about the victory, "This is my 93rd winner and my first Group 1. He's far and away the best horse I've ridden." Newly arrived at Hirschberger's stables, the trainer discussed his plans for the 6YO: "Getaway came to me in May and I'm still learning about the horse. He will probably go for the Grosser Preis von Baden before the Arc."
