Mount Nelson enjoyed an impressive one-two with his daughters in the Listed Hamburger Stuten-Cup at Hamburg on Sunday 10th July 2016.
Weltmacht ran away with the race making the running and winning by over eight lengths, with Strawberry Martini finishing second.
Trained by Markus Klug, Weltmacht was following up another Listed victory last year in Dusseldorf, and as a three-year-old she was second in the Gr.2 Diana-Trial.
Bred and owned by Gestut Rottgen, Weltmacht is a half-sister to the Gr.2 Park Hill Stakes winner and Gr.1 runner up Wild Coco.
Trained by Henri-Alex Pantall, Strawberry Martini was gaining invaluable black-type for her owner/breeder Newsells Park Stud. She is out of Strawberry Lolly, a half-sister to multiple Group winner Strawberrydaiquri, and also the dam of Stakes winner Tony Curtis.
Mount Nelson has had five Stakes winners this year and is now joint 7th in the leading sires of European Stakes winners alongside Zoffany, Fastnet Rock and Lope de Vega, and ahead of Showcasing, Kyllachy, Dutch Art, Dansili, etc.
