Excellent performance as race panned out to be. Proving yet again so many key factors come into play during a race.


DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS  German filly completes her fairytale rise with remarkable big-race victory.

JON LEES “German  filly DANEDREAM, originally bought as a fun horse for just e9,000, reduced Longchamp to a stunned silence yesterday when she humbled  European racing millionaire superstars to complete the ultimate rags-to-riches racing story.
“In an unexpected twist to the predicted narrative, expected to feature SARAFINA, SO YOU THINK, GALIKOVA or WORKFORCE  it’s climax, it was the unheralded  DANEDREAM, who executed one of the most one-sided victories in the history of Qatar Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe, beating  her rivals by a seldom exceeded winning margin in a time better than PIENTRE CELEBRE’S  14-year race record. “Supplemented into the race for e100,000 after Japanese owner breeder Teruya Yoshida bought a half share from HeikoVolz-came into the field an outsider but ended an outstanding winner, running clear of the field to score by five lengths  under jockey ANDRASCH STARKE and setting a new race best time of 2min 24..49sec.

“SARAFINA’S  pacemaker  SHARETA  got closest  to the devastating DANEDREAM, holding off  SNOW FAIRY by a neck, with SO YOU THINK close behind in fourth. “Just three short necks separated his stable mate  ST NICOLAS ABBEY, MEANDRA and SARAFINA  in fifth, sixth and seventh.

C4 TANYA  (Tipbits)  STEVENSON’S  STAT STRIKE followers …. “Three-year-olds have now won 15 of the last 18 running’s of the Arc and nine of the last ten winners have come from a single figure draw.”



DANEDREAM partner ANDRASCH STARKE said “When she took the lead a furlong out I couldn’t believe it, it’s the greatest feeling in my life, she is a fantastic filly, if you told me in June she would win the Arc I wouldn’t have agreed, but today I knew we would win from two furlongs out. I knew there were some good horses in the race but we had a really clear run and once she moved out she won easily.”

DAVID CONNOLLY-SMITH “Trainer PETER SCHIERGEN is notable as a former top-flight jockey who has hit the same heights in his second career as a trainer. Born in Krefeld, the 46- year –old was champion jockey for five successive seasons, setting a record by riding 271 winners in 1995. He has had about 1,120 winners to his credit on the Flat, plus another 30 over jumps. His successes include 130 Group races, 28 of them Group 1’s.  SCHIERGEN has won all the top races in Germany as a trainer, including the Deutsches Derby three times with BOREAL,  SCHIAPAARELLI and KAMSIN.”
