Sunday 30th April

Henkel-Stutenpreis (Dusseldorf)

Listed Race For 3 year olds

Distance: 1,600m

Purse: 25,000 EUR

Andreas Wöhler’s Rainbow Royal will surely go-off as favourite, having won all 3 of his races including a Group contest in Italy. Sunny Belle and Attica, look the biggest threats to the Paco Boy-sired horse.

Monday 1st May

Grosser Preis Jungheinrich Gabelstapler (Hanover)

Listed Race For 4 year olds and upwards

Distance: 1,600m

Purse: 25,000 EUR

Many punters will be scratching their heads, trying to find the winner of this 1-mile encounter for mares. Partyday, Wacaria and Raving Beauty take on Hans-Jürgen Gröschel’s Shy Witch. Owned and bred by Karin Schwerdtfeger, she’s already picked up over 90,000 euros in prize-money and the experience she has gained may just giver her the edge.

Grosser Preis von Rossmann (Hanover)

Listed Race For 3 year olds and upwards

Distance: 1,200m

Purse: 25,000 EUR

Živa Prunk has taken time out from railing aginst the Austrian racing industry and will be represented by Pretorian. With Tomáš Šatra’s Mikesh also entered, the contest will have quite an international flavour. German horses are still expected to dominate proceedings, however and Daring Match, Forgino and Donnerschlag all look to be in with a realistic shout.

Bavarian Classic (Munich)

Group 3 For 3 year olds

Distance: 2,000m

Purse: 55,000 EUR

This race is one of the most-important Derby Trials of the campaign and Markus Klug will be very-well represented. Kastano and Northsea Star are both expected to go close, but this looks a competitive renewal and Andreas Wöhler also has a handy brace of contenders in Warring States and Nerud.

History Of The Bavarian Classic

The race was first run in 1969, although it was originally called the Preis des Kaufhauses Hertie. In 1970 it became the Grosser Hertie-Preis and G2 status was awarded in 1977.

In 2004, it was downgraded to G3 level and renamed as the Bavarian Classic.  Heinz Jentzsch won the race on no less than 10 occasions, firstly with – Boris (1972) and lastly with Vialli (1994).

The great Monsun landed the spoils for him, in 1993. The Gestüt Isarland-bred horse (a 4-time Champion Sire) would go on to win the Preis von Europa and Gerling-Preis, in the same season.
