Horses to have won this race include Surumu, Nebos, Acatenango, Novellist and Sea The Moon. Boscaccio landed the spoils for Christian Sprengel, in 2016.
Originally run at Tempelhof, this historic encounter was first run in 1834. It has since found homes at both Hoppegarten and Grunewald, before becoming a permanent Köln fixture in 1947. In 2017, it became the oldest surviving horse race in Germany.
Group 2 race for 3-year-olds
Purse: 70,000 EUR
Likely Runners: Colomano, Warring States, Shanjo, Monreal, Windstoss, Northsea Star, Khan & Oriental Khan.
Markus Klug will be disappointed if one of his charges isn’t first past the post. Northsea Star, Windstoss, Shanjo and the Cacique-sired Colomano are all under the brilliant trainer’s command. Andreas Wöhler’s Warring States, winner of the Bavarian Classic, is the one most likely to really take the fight to Klug’s cavalry.
