With yesterday's runner-up in the Listed level Winterkönigin Trial at Cologne, AMAZING GRACE, PROTECTIONIST already has a promising prospect for the prestigeous title for two-year-old fillies when the starting gates at Iffezheim open on October 18th for the most important race of the year. In the two days leading up to Germany's championship race (Preis der Winterkönigin), a small but fine lot of yearlings by the Monsun son will enter the sales ring near the racecourse - amongst them one could easily find next year's protagonist.
For example, in Lot 245. The yearling colt consigned by Gestüt Röttgen is a brother to the four-time Group winner MILLOWITSCH. Offered with Lot 25 is a brother to the G3-placed UMIRAGE out of Röttgen's top mare UNGARIN, herself a full sister to the Champion Stayer UNGARO. Interesting also Lot 79, a filly consigned by Gestüt Etzean from the highly successful family of the Champion 2YO NORDTÄNZERIN.
