Germany: Scalo heads Grosser Preis Von Berlin


Scalo, winner of a Group 1 in Germany last September, will be favored to win another race at that level in Sunday's Group 1 Grosser Preis Von Berlin at Hoppegarten Racecourse in Germany.

Trained by Andreas Wohler, Scalo was second in the Group 1 Gran Premio di Milano in Italy on June 12. In Sunday's race, worth approximately $221,000, Scalo, a 4-year-old colt by Lando, will be ridden by French jockey Maxime Guyon, who was aboard the colt for a win in the Group 2 Prix Guillaume d'Ornaro at Deauville, France, last year.

Scalo is part of a field of 10 that includes Godolphin Racing's Cavalryman, who has been third and eighth in the last two runnings of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe; Night Magic, who won the Group 1 Grosser Preis Von Baden last year; and Lucas Cranach, a Group 2 winner in Hamburg in June.

Pair of Group 2's in France

There are two Group 2 races at Maisons-Laffitte racecourse in France on Sunday - the Prix Eugene Adam for 3-year-olds and the Prix Robert Papin for 2-year-old colts and fillies.

The Prix Eugene Adam, run over 1 1/4 miles, is led by Columbian, who was fourth in the English Derby last month, and Pisco Sour, the winner of the Group 3 Tercentenary Stakes at Royal Ascot and the ninth-place finish in the English Derby.

Family One, a colt by Dubai Destination, will be a strong favorite against a maximum of four rivals in the Prix Robert Papin, which is run over 5 1/2 furlongs.
