Schiaparelli Wins Gr1 Deutschland Preis
In Europe overnight, last year's Gr1 Deutsches Derby winner & now 4YO entire Schiaparelli (Monsun-Sacarina, by Old Vic) scored by a head in the €155,000 (A$248,000) Gr1 Deutschland Preis (2400m) at Dusseldorf. Schiaparelli (ridden by Andrasch Starke for trainer Peter Schiergen) defeated favoured 3YO colt Conillon (Acatenango-Castilla, by Spectrum) & fellow 3YO colt First Stream (Lomitas-First Class, by Bustino). Last month Schiaparelli (who finished runner-up in this race last year) also won Germany's Gr2 Idee Hansa Preis; & last season, as well as the German Derby, he also won the Grosser Preis Der Hannoverschen Volksbank at Hannover.
