- Spectacular finale of the Great Week with live broadcast to Hong Kong
Baden-Baden/Iffezheim, 01 September 2022 (MH). It is the gallop race of the year on Sunday, 04 September, at the racecourse in Baden-Baden-Iffezheim - the 152nd Wettstar.de Grand Prix of Baden on the final Sunday of the Great Week 2022, sponsored for the second time by the most important broker of horse betting in German racing. 200,000 euros is the prize money in this Group I race over 2,400 meters, 115,000 euros alone will go to the owner of the winning horse.
There is much to suggest that the world star of German show jumping will repeat last year's success here and recommend himself for the second triumph in the Prix de l' Arc de Triomphe on October 2 in ParisLongchamp - Torquator Tasso, trained by Marcel Weiß in Mülheim for the Auenquelle Stud (Rödinghausen). After his still meaningless seasonal debut in the Grand Prix of the Baden Economy, the Adlerflug son impressed in the Wettstar.de - Grand Prix Hansa and in the honorable second place in the King George Stakes at Ascot.
Dettori should fix it
Torquator Tasso, who is a six-time winner in 14 starts, has galloped in 3,608,740 euros so far in his career. Since his previous partner, Rene Piechulek, will be riding Mendocino for the Salzburg stable, none other than Lanfranco Dettori (51) has been engaged for the ride, the world-class jockey with over 500 successes in group races.
Derby winner Sammarco the great challenger
The Grand Prix will also be particularly exciting due to challenger Sammarco (B. Murzabayev). Owned by the Park Wiedingen (Soltau) stud of Helmut von Finck, a banker's son who lives in Berlin, the three-year-old stallion from the Cologne stable of Peter Schiergen thrilled with his two successes at the highest level in the IDEE 153rd German Derby in Hamburg and the Grand Dallmayr Prize in Munich.
Alter Adler (A. de Vries) won the Grand Prix of the Baden Economy at the Spring Meeting here. Ardakan (A. Starke), trained by Markus Klug, pleased as third in the Berlin Grand Prix.
New partner Brunner for the Oettingen Race & 12 Race
Also in the further program of the big card of twelve races - since the first four races and the Grand Prix are transmitted to France, the first race starts already at 11:15 am - top gallopers do the honors. The best milers will meet in the Brunner - Oettingen race (Group II, 70,000 euros, 1,600 m). For the first time, the contract furniture manufacturer Brunner is the partner of this important competition.
French guest Hurricane Dream (L. Detttori) and Best Lightning (M. Seidl), who won the 44th Kronimus Badener Meile, are just two of the many aces in the field of ten.
Promising handicappers head for the Equalization I (20,000 euros, 2,400 m). With Lascalo (R. Piechulek) there is even a guest from Switzerland.
