   Unraced as a juvenile, Lucky Speed broke through going an extended nine furlongs at Cologne in his first start Apr. 1, but was compromised by a tardy break when second in the G3 Fruhjahrs-Preis des Bankhauses Metzler trying 10 furlongs at Frankfurt in his penultimate go Apr. 28. He remained at that distance when annexing the May 26 G3 Bavarian Classic at Munich last time, and emulated former winners of that contest Athenagoras (Ger), Acatenango (Ger) and Samum (Ger) by swooping late for Germany’s premier Classic here. In doing so, the bay provided jockey Andrasch Starke with a sixth renewal, and trainer Peter Schiergen with a fourth. Lucky Speed adopted his usual waiting tactics off the pace and settled in a position slightly worse than mid division through the early tribulations before inching into contention exiting the back straight. Rousted along on the sweeping home turn, he challenged wide approaching the final furlong and was driven out to score in game fashion. “It was a hard decision, but I am glad I picked the right horse,” commented rider Andrasch Starke. “I always had a good relationship with Lucky Speed and he really ran a blinder of a race. There was a lot of early pace so I just left him to find his legs, and I had a really good feeling we’d go close on the final turn. This feels like my first Derby success and to win in Hamburg is always great.” Trainer Peter Schiergen, added, “We had recognized his talent as a juvenile and he was always travelling well and in a good position here. When they were rounding the final turn I already had a good feeling, and it proved correct.”
