Torquator Tasso's Half-Brother Back With A Bang

Tunnes | Emma Berry


Off the track since winning the G3 Herzog von Ratibor-Rennen at Krefeld in November, Holger Renz's Tunnes (Ger) (Guiliani {Ire}) who is a half-brother to the internationally-renowned G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe , G1 Grosser Preis von Baden and G1 Grosser Preis von Berlin hero Torquator Tasso (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}) stormed back onto the scene at Baden-Baden on Wednesday. Confidently-backed into 9-10 favouritism for the Preis der BBAG-Jährlingsauktion, the Peter Schiergen-trained chestnut was full of running in the hands of Bauyrzhan Murzabayev throughout the early stages in a share of third. Moved forward to the stand's rail to take control inside the final two furlongs, he stayed on powerfully from there to score by six lengths from Lobelie (GB) (Adlerflug {Ger}).
