German Derby/Oaks Entries Close Wednesday

Quantanamera |

Nominations for next season's G1 154th IDEE Deutsches Derby and G1 Henkel-Preis der Diana (German Oaks) close Wednesday. The former contest, scheduled for July 2 at Hamburg, has already attracted a swathe of notable entries including Paul Vandeberg's hitherto unraced filly Tiara Hilleshage (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}), who is a homebred full-sister to last term's G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe hero Torquator Tasso (Ger). “She is an elegant filly who, like her brother, needs time and the focus is on her 3-year-old season,” said trainer Marcel Weiss earlier this year. Another eyecatching nominee is Gestut Rottgen's 'TDN Rising Star' Aspirant (Ger) (Protectionist {Ger}), who remains engaged in Krefeld's Nov. 13 G3 Herzog von Ratibor-Rennen. Tiara Hilleshage is on the Derby list alongside fellow distaffers Quantanamera (Ger) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), the impressive 8 1/2-length winner of last month's G3 Preis der Winterkonigin, and Sunday's 'TDN Rising Star' Naila (Fr) (Adlerflug {Ger}) with the trio also holding entries for the Aug. 6 Preis der Diana at Dusseldorf.
