Germany: Campanologist rallies to win Preis Von Europa


Campanologist won his first stakes of 2011 and his third Group 1 race in Germany in the last 15 months in Sunday’s Preis Von Europa at Cologne, Germany.

The 6-year-old Campanologist faced just five rivals and rallied from fifth under jockey Frankie Dettori to finish 1 1/4 lengths in front of the German 3-year-old Ibencio. Earl of Tinsdal, another Germany-based 3-year-old and the 9-10 favorite, finished third, three lengths behind Campanologist. The Preis Von Europa was run over 1 1/2 miles and was worth approximately $210,800.

Campanologist, who was sent off at 2-1, is owned by Godolphin Racing and trained by Saeed bin Suroor. On Friday, Dettori rode Lyric of Light to a victory in the Group 1 Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket, England, for Godolphin and trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni.

Sunday’s win was Campanologist’s first in seven starts this year. It was his first win since the Group 1 Rheinland-Pokal at Cologne in August 2010.

Curragh: David Livingston wires Beresford Stakes

David Livingston, a colt by Galileo, won his first stakes in Sunday’s Group 2 Beresford Stakes for 2-year-olds at the Curragh in Ireland, leading throughout to win by a half-length over 5-6 favorite Akeed Mofeed.

Ridden by Seamie Heffernan, David Livingston was three lengths clear of his four rivals with a little more than a quarter-mile remaining and was fully extended to win for the second time in his five-race career. The race was worth approximately $129,200.

David Livingston is owned by Derrick Smith, Susan Magnier, and Michael Tabor and is trained by Aidan O’Brien. During the summer, David Livingston was fourth in the Group 2 Futurity Stakes and third in the Group 1 National Stakes, both in Ireland.

Akeed Mofeed made his stakes debut in the Beresford Stakes over a mile after winning a maiden race by five lengths at Leopardstown on Sept. 3.
