Progressive Mastercraftsman Colt Celebrates Classic Success

The Peter Schiergen-trained Quian (4c Mastercraftsman - Quiana, by Monsun) added to his terrific season when taking the Group 3 German St Leger at Dortmund on Sunday.

Having won three of his five starts this season, he returned to the mile and six furlong trip of his earlier Stakes success on Sunday. Chasing the leaders under Lukas Delozier, they grey quickened on the turn for home and produced a strong challenge from two furlongs out. Digging deep to take the lead entering the final furlong, he ran on well to score by two lengths from the favourite Sommelier.

Owned by Stall Hornoldendorf, Quian was bred by Gestut Fahrhof out of a winning half-sister to three-time Group 1 winner Quijano.
