Last weekend I´ve been to the famous horse racing track in Iffezheim, where the most prestigious horse race of the year – the spring festival – took place.
Me, and some friends wanted to buy the 2-year old “Download” (no, not just because of the kick-ass name ), who was supposed to start in the bavarian youth price, but cause of his desastrous condition we decided to pass, which turned out to be a good idea, since he wasn´t even starting in the race.
But our Baden-Baden horse owner Posse had another starter in the field – the 5 year old mare “Wonderful Day” – who won 4th place in the 7th race of the day – the Flemington Trophy! Great job Wonderful Day (and Jockey Markus Kolb)!! Seeded with a quote of 140:10 (!) a real suprise to anyone! Really made us a wonderful day – as you can see
