Today’s Kincsem Park card was a great one, with the final three FEGAT Men’s Championship races and three high-class events led by the Gr. III Jozsef Marschall Memorial (purse 9,000,000Huf, 1800 meters autostart).

That race drew a fine field of the best in east-central Europe and the 2/1 favorite Azimut (5m Odessa Santana-Aida-Lets Go) of Germany prevailed easily with Josef Franzl driving.

He also trains the winner, bred by Fritz Royer, that was timed in 1.13.1kr over the sprinter distance. Azimut came into this race off three wins in his last five outings. The 17.6/1 odds Paolendry Like (9g Enjoy Lavec) was second for Marko Slavic and the SLO trainer Boris Vukosavljavic. 41.5/1 Global Player (11g Ditka Hanover-Gravitat-Speedy Soma) took third with Erich Kubes at the lines for trainer Cornelia Ubleis of Austria.

The 3.4/1 second choice Tosca Victory (8m Up de Poggio) claimed the fourth check for Peter Schwarzimuller, also from Austria. Below is the program header and performance lines of the race winner.

The second feature today was the Hungaria DIJ (purse 4,000,000Huf, 2560 meters voltstart, starters aged three and four with the age four performers handicapped 40 meters).

The even-money favorite Eros Josselyn (4g Sam Bourbon-Queda Josselyn-In Foot) scored powerfully, after a first up surge in the final turn, timed in 1.16kr with trainer Joze Sagaj aboard, he from SLO. The winner is a rugged sort and this victory was his sixth straight, the last three before today in France, with Sagaj teaming.

The 3.7/1 odds Zeal de Girifalco (3m Igor Font-Inviatar d’italla-Varenne) was second for trainer/driver Veljko Mazsity. Desert King (4m Cantab Hall-German June-Daguet Rapide), off three straight recent wins, at 30/1 odds today, took third handled by trainer Josef Franzl, also facing 40 extra meters at the start. Fourth was 10.5/1 Zagabria Vani (3f Ruty Grif-Monia LB-Pine Chip) that SLO’s Mirko Gregorc handled and trains. This one last scored at Padova on July 18/.

The final upper class race this day was the Istvan Szegedy Memorial (purse 1,200,000Huf, 1900 meters autostart) and the 2.2/1 local star Uran Lady (5f Maximus Lindy-Vas Lady-Endless Sands) scored in 1.17.5kr for Veljko Mazsity.

Kabala Menes Kft bred this one that rallied relentlessly in the lane to get up in the final strides. 4/1 Conway Boko (9m Castleton Bass) held second for Tibor Hajnal and 7.6/1 Milliondollar Lux (12m Ganymede) was a game third for Emil Csordas. Veteran Underpaid Hanover (9m Revenue) was fourth with Csaba Lakatos up. A section of the program page and photos follow.
