Rock Of Gibraltar Adds German Black-Type
In Germany, European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a black-type success when Irish-bred 3YO filly Aslana (Rock Of Gibraltar-Alte Kunst, by Royal Academy) scored a half-length victory in the €20,000 (A$29,000) Listed Preis Der HSBC Trinkhaus (1400m) for fillies & mares at Dusseldorf. Aslana (ridden by Andreas Starke for trainer Peter Schiergen) defeated Irish-bred 5YO mare Magic Eye (Nayef-Much Commended, by Most Welcome) & fellow 3YO filly Devilish Lips (Konigstiger-Djidda, by Lando). Aslana took her record to 2 wins & 2 placings (in March's Listed Preis Der Dreijahrigen over 1500m at Dusseldorf & 2009's Listed Kronimus Rennen over 1200m at Baden-Baden) from 6 starts for €26,400 (A$38,000) earnings.
