Adlerflug Filly Earns Rising Star Tag At Cologne



Sporting the famed Gestut Rottgen silks in Cologne's Preis vom Weidenpescher Park on Sunday, Naila (Fr) (Adlerflug {Ger}) overpowered her peers to become the latest German TDN Rising Star. Sent off the 9-10 favourite for the 1850-metre maiden, the Markus Klug-trained chestnut broke well from the widest stall to track the leading duo throughout the early stages. Taking control approaching the two-furlong marker, she surged clear to win unchallenged by 10 lengths with Andrasch Starke easing down.

The winner is the last known foal out of the listed-winning dam Naomia (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}), who has produced the G3 Zukunftsrennen scorer Narella (Ire) (Reliable Man {GB}). She is a daughter of the G1 Oaks d'Italia heroine Nagoya (Ger) (Goofalik), who is also the second dam of Nepal (Ger) (Kallisto {Ger}) who also captured that Milan Classic when it was staged as a group 2 in 2016.

2nd-Cologne, €7,000, Mdn, 10-30, 2yo, 1850mT, 2:00.24, g/s.
NAILA (FR) (f, 2, Adlerflug {Ger}–Naomia {Ger} {SW-Ger}, by Monsun {Ger}) Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €4,200.
O/B-Gestut Rottgen (GER); T-Markus Klug.
