Rock Of Gibraltar Adds German Gr3
In Germany, European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a group success when juvenile colt Ayaar (Rock Of Gibraltar-Teide Lady, by Nashwan) scored a 2-lengths win for trainer Mick Channon in the €55,000 Gr3 Zukunfts Rennen (1400m) for 2YOs at Baden-Baden, over the filly Penelopa (Giant's Causeway-Lady Linda, by Torrential) & fellow colt Se Gray (Bernstein-Smokinatthefinish, by Smoke Glacken). A dead-heat winner last time out at Lingfield, the win took Ayaar's record to 3 wins & a placing from 7 starts.
