G2 win for LOPE DE VEGA by RODABALLO at Baden-Baden

LOPE DE VEGA recorded a great success today at the final meeting day of Baden-Baden's Große Woche with the fantastic victory of RODABALLO in the 88th running of the Kronimus Öttingen-Rennen. Travelling to Germany from Spain especially for this race, the four-year-old colt shone in the €65,000 G2 challenge over the mile with a very strong performance and enormous fighting spirit. RODABALLO, trained by Guillermo Arizkorreta for the owner syndicate Pata Negra Racing and ridden by Jose-Luis Martinez-Tejera, narrowly edged out the competition in a thrilling finish to score his first group win.
