Peslier To Partner Pastorius

Thursday, 4th July 2013

Triple Gr1-winning 4YO entire Pastorius (Soldier Hollow-Princess Li, by Monsun) will make his return to racing in Saturday's Gr1 Coral Eclipse Stakes at Sandown in the UK, reports sportinglife.com. The classy German galloper has not been sighted since his disappointing effort in the Gr1 Singapore Airlines International Cup in mid-May where he managed to beat only one home, but trainer Mario Hofer is confident Pastorius will be back to his brilliant best this weekend where he will be reunited with outstanding French jockey Olivier Peslier. "Things did not go right for him in Singapore. The weather was very hot, it was not easy and it was not a good race for him," explained Hofer. "He came back home, we have given him a break and he seems very well. Hopefully he will go to Sandown and give his best performance." Pastorius has 6 wins from 13 starts including the Gr1 German Derby, Gr1 Grosser Dallmayr Preis & the Gr1 Prix Ganay for £622,168 earnings.
