Incredible 15,000 visitors took advantage of the wonderful weather for a trip to the Cologne Racing Club and experienced a program loaded end of the season. In the sporting center (Group III 1,600 meters, doping: 155,000 Euros) was the prize of the winter favorites, a biennial exam, which is something that Turf experts cast a watchful eye. For the victory horse starts as favorite for the Derby, Germany’s most important breeding race in the new season.
Already from the start of preparing Markus Klug for the stud Röttgen Erasmus (Jockey: Adreie de Vries) went to the top of the 9s field and long fought a head to head duel with wild Max (Coach: Andreas Wöhler, jockey Eduardo Pedroza ). However, on the home straight, there was no stopping Erasmus. The stallion went up and away, winning eight lengths in a time of 1: 39.37 minutes quite superior.
Erasmus’ victory was so overwhelming that he moved the visitors into real surprise. In the end, all cheered – regardless of the bets placed – for the two-year-old son of Reliable Man. A real goosebumps moment at the Grand season finale.
