Navarra King hält Zukunftsrennen im Lande
Following his confident victory in Munich, NAVARRA KING by LOPE DE VEGA out of our NAVARRA QUEEN, faced a much more serious task in Baden-Baden today. The colt competed in the 143rd Steinhoff Zukunftsrennen (Future Race) on G3 level over 1400 m for 55,000 Euro prize money against internationally interesting competitors.
And, the two-year-old did not disappoint when he delivered an impressive performance under Andrasch Starke. Coming from the back of the field, Navarra King developed great speed in the final stretch and passed the leading English filly Miss Infinity easily to win this G3 challenge with a one and a half lengths margin.
Trainer Peter Schiergen expressed great satisfaction with the colt's performance, who is now bound to target the Preis des Winterfavoriten, Germany's 2yo champion race, next.
