Monday, 4th August 2008

In Germany overnight, former Coolmore shuttler Catcher In The Rye (Danehill-Truly A Dream by Darshaan) added a Gr1 triumph when Irish-bred daughter Rosenreihe (Catcher In The Rye-Rosengeste, by Be My Guest) scored by a neck in the €400,000 (A$680,000) Gr1 Preis Der Diana-German Oaks (2200m) for 3YO fillies at Dusseldorf. Rosenreihe (ridden by Andrasch Starke for trainer Peter Schiergen) defeated Gr3-winner Lady Marian (Nayef-La Felicita, by Shareef Dancer) & Gr2-winner Baila Me (Samum-Bandeira, by Law Society). Previously this season Rosenreihe finished runner-up in June's Gr2 German 1000 Guineas (1600m) at Dusseldorf & 3rd in May's Gr3 Schwarzgold-Rennen (1600m) at Cologne; & last year she finished runner-up in France's Listed Prix Des Sablonnets (1600m) at Nantes.
