Fastnet’s La Saldana on Classic trail after G3 win

A brilliant week in Europe for Fastnet Rock continued on Sunday when La Saldana (3f Fastnet Rock-La Salina, by Singspiel) showed off her Classic claims with a G3 victory in Cologne.

Trained by Andreas Wohler, the Gestut Fahrhof home-bred captured the G3 Karin Baronin von Ullmann-Schawzgold-Rennen by half a length. The G2 German 1,000 Guineas is next on her schedule.

Earlier in the week, the Aidan O’Brien-trained Cape Clear Island (3c Fastnet Rock-Kushnarenkovo, by Sadler´s Wells) took the £200,000 Tattersalls Millions 3yo Trophy in Newmarket, while Dermot Weld saddled Fascinating Rock (4c Fastnet Rock-Miss Polaris, by Polar Falcon) to win Leopardstown’s Listed Heritage Stakes ahead of an international campaign.
