This Weekend’s Top German Action
The Preis von Dahlwitz (Berlin, Sunday) is a Listed encounter for horses aged 4 and up. Via Bank takes on Wai Key Star and Boscaccio in this 2000m event.
Adam Wyrzyk’s Caccini is likely to go-off as favourite, in the Listed Altano Rennen (Berlin, Sunday). Iraklion and Rock Of Romance look the principal threats.
The Grosser Preis der VGH (Hanover, Monday) looks to be a terrific opportunity for Peter Schiergen’s Sarandia. Son Macia and Salve Venezia should also go close.
Andreas Wöhler has a brace of superb inmates, representing him in the G3 Schwarzgold-Rennen (Cologne, Monday). Both Rainbow Royal and Delectation are expected to have successful Classic campaigns. Waldemar Hickst’s Peace In Motion could be a fly in the ointment, for Wöhler though.
Racing At Cologne
Of these 4 races, it is the Schwarzgold-Rennen that really stands out. It’s just one of many great contests that will take place at Cologne, this season. You can bet on all Cologne races, with RaceBets, as we offer comprehensive betting coverage of racing in Germany.
This venue can be found in Nippes and it is regarded as being amongst the most important in the country. Constructed around the turn of the 20th-century, it was built with a huge grandstand made out of wood and iron. The venue underwent a massive program of renovation, in 2004.
The Preis Von Europa
The G1 Preis von Europa is for three year-old thoroughbreds aged at least three years. This race is run in September and it’s one for every true racing fan’s diary! Inaugurated in 1963, it followed the discontinuation of the Gladiatoren Rennen which used to be held at Krefeld. The previous race was run over the considerably longer distance of 1.75 miles. The fixture was immediately awarded G1 status, when the revised classification method came about in the early-1970s.
The most successful trainer in the race’s history has been Heinz Jentzsch. His 7 wins began with Lombard in 1971 and ended with Solon in 1995. Monsun achieved back-to-back victories in 1993 and 1994.
Peter Schiergen has been utterly dominant, in this race, over the last 5 years. Girolamo landed the spoils in 2012, Empoli in 2014, while Nightflower scored back-to-back successes in 2015 and 2016.Join RaceBets And Claim Your Welcome Bonus Now!
