Two victories by HIGH FLIGHT and BERNSTEINKETTE
Munich's 1600 m challenge for the derby crop went to HIGH FLIGHT, who is in training with Peter Schiergen in Cologne. The LOPE DE VEGA-colt was taken to the outer lane by trainer son and amateur champion Vinzenz Schiergen to secure a nice win after racing close to the lead for most of the way.
BERNSTEINKETTE delivered the second victory of the day for Ammerland colors. Mickael Barzalona took the KANDAHAR RUN-daughter to stalk Nic Mountain in the lead and started her final attack entering the stretch on the outside rails. Once in front, the John Hillis-trained filly never weavered and held on bravely to record a confident win in this €10,000 level 2 handicap over 2000 m.
