Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Wednesday's Observations features a son of G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine Danedream (Ger) (Lomitas {GB}).
