Half-Brother To Torquator Tasso Graduates At Cologne


Torquator Tasso | Scoop Dyga


Holger Renz's €38,000 BBAG September graduate Tunnes (Ger) (Guiliani {Ire}), a half-brother to last week's G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe hero Torquator Tasso (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}), bettered a debut second at Cologne last month with a three-length score in Sunday's Alson-Rennen back at the Weidenpescher venue.

1st-Cologne, €5,100, Mdn, 10-10, 2yo, 9 1/4fT, 1:57.83, g/s.
TUNNES (GER) (c, 2, Guiliani {Ire}–Tijuana {Ger}, by Toylsome {GB}), who ran second going one mile in his Sept. 26 debut at this venue last time, was swiftly into stride and led from flagfall. Untroubled on the front end for the most part, the 4-5 favourite kicked clear in early straight and ran on strongly under whipless coaxing inside the final quarter mile to easily defeat Antinanco (Ire) (Champs Elysees {GB}) by three lengths. Tunnes, the fourth of five foals, becomes the second scorer produced by a half-sister to three stakes performers headed by the G2 Diana-Trial victrix Tusked Wings (Ire) (Adlerflug {Ger}). The April-foaled chestnut is a half-brother to MG1SW G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe hero and G1 Deutsches Derby runner-up Torquator Tasso (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}), who also shed maiden status at this venue, and a yearling filly by Adlerflug (Ger). His third dam, Listed Prix Occitanie runner-up Turbaine (Trempolino), is also the dam of Guiliani's sire Tertullian (Miswaki) which gives Tunnes a 3×3 inbreeding to Turbaine. Turbaine is a half-sister to G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe-winning blue hen Urban Sea (Miswaki). Sales history: €38,000 Ylg '20 BBAGS. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, €3,570.
