AMAZING GRACE excellent runner-up in Winterkönigin-Trial (L) at Cologne

Two-year-old PROTECTIONIST daughter AMAZING GRACE gave her sire the second Black Type performance to record at Cologne today. The filly, who is prepared by Waldemar Hickst for Dr. Christoph Berglar ran a gutsy race in the 1500m Winterkönigin Trial and, despite the yielding ground, finished in an excellent second place three quarters of a length behind the winner with Marco Casamento onboard. The next goal for AMAZING GRACE will be the G3 Preis der Winterkönigin--Germany's champion race for two-year-old fillies--mid of October in Baden-Baden where she will be the first runner at Group level for her sire PROTECTIONIST.
