KALIFORNIA QUEEN gives LOPE DE VEGA G2 win in Germany
KALIFORNIA QUEEN gave LOPE DE VEGA yet another group win in Germany when she romped to a confident victory in the 2000m G2 Diana-Trial at Berlin-Hoppegarten. The small chesnut filly was given a perfect trip by jockey Clément Lecoeuvre, who took her through an opening on the inside rail for a thrilling finish. There she left no questions unanswered with her fantastic speed and big heart, drawing clear with impressive ease, and secureing her spot in the winner's circle with a one and three quarters-length advantage. Prepared by Henk Grewe for owners and breeders Stall Torjäger, KALIFORNIA QUEEN is nominated for this year's G1 German Oaks to be held on August 2nd where she will have the chance to give her sire his first classic win in Germany.
