TDN Rising Star Tag For Iquitos Rarity

Iquitos | Marc Ruhl


Mulheim was grey and damp on Sunday, but it nevertheless witnessed a sparkling display in the card's opener as Wanja Soren Oberhof und Sebastian Weiss's 3-year-old colt Mr Hollywood (Ire) (Iquitos {Ger}–Margie's Music {Fr}, by Hurricane Run {Ire}) issued a 16-length beating to his peers on debut to become the latest German TDN Rising Star. With his triple group 1-winning Gestut Graditz-based sire having just five members of his initial crop, the Henk Grewe-trained half-brother to last year's G3 Derby-Trial runner-up Magical Beat (Ger) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) was flying the flag as he bid to make it two winners from two starters for the son of Adlerflug (Ger). Placed towards the fore by Leon Wolff after the flag start to the 10-furlong Auftaktrennen, the 5-2 second favourite took command turning for home and set sail in the testing conditions to open up his sizeable margin before being eased near the post.

“We were quite enthusiastic about him and I had the ideal position behind the leader with him always going well,” his rider said of the sire's first foal to be born. Grewe was keeping his feet on the ground as he added, “The going surely helped him and my horses are already very fit. We will soon see how good he really is, for the moment we will stay calm and just wait and see.”

The winner is the second foal out of the dam, who was listed-placed in the famed Gestut Ammerland silks and who also has a 2-year-old filly by Waldgeist (GB) named Moosbeere (Ger). The second dam Margie's World (Ger) (Spinning World) was also listed-placed and is kin to the G2 Gerling-Preis-placed Margosto (Ger) (Acatenango {Ger}), while the fourth dam Our Little Margie (Mr. Majestic) was second in the GI Spinaway S.
