Now in his 40s, this veteran has seen and one it all. His biggest achievement was winning the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp, on Danedream in 2011. He’s also won the Deutsches Derby on 6 occasions.
The former Dresden man won the German Jockey Championship together with Andrasch Starke in 2015. Over the years, he’s worked with the likes of Stefan Wegner, Hans-Albert Blume and and Andreas Wöhler. Pietsch is very-likely to be a factor, in this season’s competition.
This year’s Championship does not look like being just a head-to-head battle, between Starke and Pietsch. Minarik’s recent victories include the Gerling-Preis, the GP Von Bayern, the GP Von Baden and the German Oaks. If things go Minarik’s way, he will be a threat.
Others in contention include Adrie de Vries, Eduardo Pedroza, Martin Seidl and Michael Cadeddu. The Championship looks wide-open and could turn out to be among the most fascinating of recent years.View Today’s Betting Markets Now!
The Deutsches Derby
An ante-post betting market is already open for the 2017 Deutsches Derby, a contest for 3-year-old thoroughbreds of either sex. Run over a mile and a half, there is a half-million euro purse for this July fixture. The race is based on the Epsom Derby, which takes place in England.
The Deutsches Derby has a long and proud history, dating back to 1869. Back then, it was known as the Norddeutches Derby and the name wasn’t changed until 1889.
While Hamburg is universally regarded as the home of this event, it has taken place in other parts of Germany on occasions. Those venues include Grunewald, Hoppergarten, Munich and Cologne.
In the early 1970s, the way that races were classed in Germany was reviewed. Following the introduction of new guidelines, the Deutsches Derby was awarded Group 1 status – a ranking that it has enjoyed, ever since. There have been some outstanding recent winners, including Isfahan, Nutan and Sea The Moon.
Lucky Speed won the 2013 renewal and was trained by Peter Schiergan, himself a former Champion Jockey.
