A grand card of harness racing trotting took place this day at Hamburg, Germany led by the Gr. I Grosser Preis von Deutschland (purse 150,000€, 2200 meters autostart, 13 starters).

The  56/1 (PMU odds, 11/1 on ATG) outsider Hesiod (4m Explosive Matter-SJs Sentiment-SJs Photo) scored in gate to wire fashion for Ulf Ohlsson and trainer Petri Salmela.

PS Horse AM owns the winner that recorded his 15th career victory in 30 starts, now for 175,718€ earned, 75,000€ of which was earned today.

Windsun Farm of Canada (Harkey Harkness) bred the winner. Enterprise (4m Chapter Seven-Shes Gone Again) was second for Carl Johan Jepson and trainer Stefan Melander, for Courant AB, at 4.9/1 odds.

Classic Connection (4m Love You-Crys Dream) rallied four wide around the final bend, after being shuffled from post one, to be a closing third, handled by owner/breeder Jean Pierre Dubois for trainer Yves Boireau, this one off at 5.4/1 odds on PMU and 15/1 on ATG.

Prosperous (4g Prodigious) and favorite Tsunami Diamant (4m Gustav Diamant) completed the top five. Giveitgasandgo and Heart of Steel battled for supremacy early, could not pass Hesiod, and drifted into obscurity in the late going. Race time was 1.12.1kr.
