Preis Von Europa The Sunday Feature

Rebel's Romance | Coady Photography


While the world holds it breath for the upcoming Arc weekend, Sunday's action is relatively low-key with Cologne's G1 Preis von Europa the main attraction. Won last year by the rampant Alpinista (GB) (Frankel {GB}), the 12-furlong test is a competitive affair this time with Godolphin's Rebel's Romance (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) looking to emulate her by adding this to his success in Hoppegarten's G1 Grosser Preis von Berlin Aug. 14. Last year's third Sisfahan (Fr) (Isfahan {Ger}) re-enters the fray and along with Sammarco (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) boosts the line-up as the last two heroes of the G1 Deutsches Derby.

Sammarco beat the subsequent G2 T von Zastrow Stutenpreis scorer Amazing Grace (Ger) (Protectionist {Ger}) in the G1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis over 10 furlongs at Munich July 31 and holds the Arc prospects of Mendocino (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}) and Torquator Tasso (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}) up to the light having finished behind them in the Sept. 4 G1 Grosser Preis von Baden.

At the Curragh, the seven-furlong G3 Weld Park S. for 2-year-old fillies sees Marc Detampel and Michael Buckley's Caroline Street (No Nay Never) back up 15 days after her gallant second to Auguste Rodin (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) in Leopardstown's G2 Champions Juvenile S. Sept. 10.
