LOPE DE VEGA's RAMAZOTTI takes Ferdinand Leisten-Memorial

Quite an impressive performance gave Gestuet Faehrhof's RAMAZOTTI by our sire LOPE DE VEGA in today's Ferdinand Leisten-Memorial at Baden-Baden racecourse. The €200,000 auction race for two-year-olds over 1400 m drew an elite field of youngsters and saw the Lope de Vega-colt win in more than promising style. Eduardo Pedroza had Ramazotti settled in a prominent, ground saving position along the inner rails from where the colt drew away with relative ease to score by a confident two and a half lengths without even being seriously challenged.
