Winning list


– Two maternal lines brought two winners: Minnehaha (US) and Mary (by Monmouth Eclipse) (US).

– The last year it was the paternal line of Volomite that brought the most of the winners. This year it changed and the result was pretty balanced between Scotland-line, Volomite-line and also a strong French influence.

– Sires: Swedish Hero Maharajah sired last year the Swedish Derby winner Who´s Who, this year the Italian Derby Winner Alrajah One (the Italian Derby is still the one with the highest purse by far). In Austria, November sired his second Derby Winner with Nero Maximus after Kaka in 2011.

Inaccessable Grou, Czech Republic Derby Winner of 2019. The Gelding is born in Germany and was sold to Czech Republic. On this picture you see him winning at Vienna-Krieau racetrack, Austria, with Martin Redl in the bike.
