Hello,
I have very sad news.

Adlerflug (by In the Wings) died suddenly at 5. April 21, only 17 years old at the "Schlenderhan Stud" in Germany.

Adlerflug won the German Derby in 2007 and several other Group Races and was meanwhile on of our best Sires.

He was from the long established German "Alveole family", see Galileo, King's Best, Sea the Stars etc. In my home country Adlerflug, after along a long time a Sire from this family, so he is a great loss for our thoroughbredbreeding.

Adlerflug has so far 2 sons at stud, "Ito" and "Iquitos", both will have their frist crop on the ground.

Best regards from Germany, Bettina

Hello Bettina,

Yes, I also was very sad about the passing of Adlerflug, a huge loss for German breeding.
However, yesterday I saw a good trial at Sandown Park:
https://www.racingpost.com/results/54/s ... -23/780439

His son Alenquer won this race, which is always a good trial for a Derby-candidate, but he is not entered in the English/French Derby unfortunately.

I also hope that Torquator Tasso will continue racing this year, he was bred by a friend of us.

King regards,

Margreet
