Godolphin's Rebel's Romance Annexes Cologne's Preis Von Europa

Rebel's Romance | racingfotos.com


Adding Sunday's G1 Preis von Europa at Cologne to his G1 Grosser Preis von Berlin victory, Godolphin's Rebel's Romance (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) upstaged some of Germany's premier performers as William Buick timed it to perfection again. Switched off in rear throughout the early stages, the 13-10 favourite was delivered towards the rail to hit the front inside the final furlong and beat Sammarco (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) by 3/4 of a length, with Amazing Grace (Ger) (Protectionist {Ger}) 2 1/4 lengths away in third. “He was nice and relaxed and showed at Hoppegarten that he has a turn of foot–it's a long straight here and he's better on faster ground, so he did well.”

Rebel's Romance, who captured last year's G2 UAE Derby on the dirt and also took the Listed Fred Archer S. at Newmarket June 25 and Goodwood's G3 Glorious S. July 29 prior to adding Hoppegarten's Grosser Preis von Berlin to his tally Aug. 14, is out of the Listed Height of Fashion S. runner-up Minidress (GB) (Street Cry {Ire}) whose other notable is the Listed Cairn Rouge S.-placed Petticoat (GB) (Cape Cross {Ire}). Minidress is a full-sister to the G3 Nad Al Sheba Trophy scorer Volcanic Sky (GB), with their dam being the G3 Musidora S. winner and G1 Yorkshire Oaks and Oaks-placed Short Skirt (GB) (Diktat {GB}).

Pedigree Notes:
The third dam is the excellent producer Much Too Risky (GB) (Bustino {GB}), whose four black-type winners are headed by the G2 Prix de Pomone scorer Whitewater Affair (GB) (Machiavellian), in turn the dam of the triple Group 1-winning Dubai World Cup hero Victoire Pisa (Jpn) (Neo Universe {Jpn}) and the G1 Yasuda Kinen winner Asakusa De'nen (GB) (Singspiel {Ire}). Minidress's unraced 2-year-old colt by Frankel (GB) is named Measured Time (GB), while her 2021 filly by Golden Horn (GB) sadly died.
