Arc 2021

Postby Bettina » Sun Oct 03, 2021 2:49 pm

Hello,
one more great success for a Germanbred racehorse! :D :o

Torquator Tasso (by Adlerflug) wins as big outsider the 100th running of the ARC, with his permanent jockey Mr. Piechulek, second placed Tarnawa and 3rdplaced Hurricane Lane.

regards, Bettina

Love that inbreeding to Allegretta and her full sister Alya!

In my over-exitement this weekend I did something completely wrong and my post had disappeared.
Let me tell you a fairytale that came true on sunday at Longchamp.
For many years Mr. Paul Vandeberg from Hilleshagen, a village near Mechelen in the south of Limburg, breeds thoroughbreds. I found the mare Manuela in the Dutch Studbook in 1967. Her granddaughter Hilleshager Lady was third in the Dutch Derby in 1986.
Vandeberg bought in 2016 privately Tijuana (v. Toylesome), with a foal at foot and in foal to Adlerflug. The colt was later renamed in Torquator Tasso, as German names always have to begin with the same character as their dam. The colt was sold in 2018 at the Sales in Baden Baden to Gestüt Auenquelle and put into training with Marcel Weiss, in his first year of training. At his second start as a 3yo, he broke his maiden at Cologne and finished second in the German Derby behind In Swoop. He also won the Grosser Preis von Berlin in Hoppengarten. He was voted Horse of the Year 2020 in Germany.
This year he won the Grosser Hansa Preis and the Grosser Preis von Baden, both at Baden Baden racecourse.
You may say the circumstances were very much in his favour (soft going) as for many Adlerflug offspring.
His pedigree is beautiful, both his sire and dam belong to the famous ''A'' family, of which Allegretta, granddam of Galileo stands out.

This is the greatest success a breeder can have, when a horse he raised, wins the most prestigious race in Europe.

Hello, Erins Isle,
Many thanks for your congratulations and the "background Info" about his breeder.

According by info, Tijuana is now, back at her breeder stud "Schlenderhan". Sadly her broodmare Sire Toylsome was sent to Russia.

best regards, Bettina

There was a little mistake in my story:

TT won the Großer Hansa-Preis at Hamburg, not Baden-Baden, and Tijuana was leased to Paul Vandeberg with the contingency to return the first filly from her offsprings to Schlenderhan (so Gebhardt Apelt in a Racebets-Podcast about Schlenderhan a year ago:
