Photos: Cologne (GER) - G1 'Preis Von Europa'


Recommended Posts

Had the chance to go over to Cologne last weekend to the big racing weekend around the Group 1 'Preis Von Europa'. Two days of excellent racing, with the big Group 1 as the main act, but also some intriguing listed events and international starters, mainly from France. Cologne is a huge race track, with two old wooden stands, restaurants and betting halls, yet a lovely, cosy track. Not quite the newest standard, nonetheless with good facilities and full of charm. The track was rammed both days, with almost a 16.000 capacity crowd on Sunday. 

The big race went to the tough filly Nightflower, ridden by Andrasch Starke. She was Oaks runner-up earlier this year but flew home on Sunday, beating fine opposition in Dubday, Ito and Sirius. 

 

Here a couple of my shots from the weekend...
