August 3, 2014: The 10HUf million, 100th edition of the Hungarian Trotting Derby today went to 7/2 odds second choice Szerelmes R with Balazs Juhasz aboard. The three year-old son of Wall Street Banker (full-brother to legendary Valley Victory that was campaigned in the US by the late Doug Ackerman) scored over 1900 meters autostart in 1.17.2kr by over six lengths. Szacharin (by Vanito, a son of Titan Way) was second for Laszlo Kolozsi with favored Speedy Boy (by Wall Street Banker) third for Veljko Mazsity. Dam of the winner is the excellent producer Viragos (by Surefire Lobell, a son of Speedy Crown-Starglow Hanover). Viragos has generated multiple winners throughout her broodmare career by Wall Street Banker, Tony Oaks, Baltic Bet, Valley Guardian, Endless Sands, and Witsend's Speedy.

On the Kincsem Park card the secondary feature Pannonia DIJ (purse 1.8HUf million over 1800 meters autostart), for four year-old HU-breds, went to Royal Flesh, a son of Wall Street Banker-Tameways Sweet SL-Super Arnie) with Laszlo Marton up for AMMA Kft. He scored in 1.16.5kr over Paperboy and Palko. Tamesways Sweet L is from Tameway (Tamerlane-Airway) and this family has produced exceptionally well in Hungary.

The Jozsef Sinka Memorial (purse 1.2HUf million, 1800 meters autostart), for aged open class trotters, went to red hot Lambert SAS (9m Diamond Way-Agena LB-Indro Park) in 1.15.1kr by open lengths. The Italian bred veteran (maternal family of Starita Lobell) is trained and driven by Jozsef Sagaj for SLO owner Albert Hossman. The Tony Oaks sired Masterpiece and Night Lady were next on the line.

This day in Germany (Mariendorf) showcased the €227,430 purse Deutsches Traber Derby over 1900 meters autostart. 12 starters took the challenge and trainer/driver Arnold J. Mollema prevailed with favored Expo Express (3m Expo Bi-Pine Spirit-Pine Chip) owned by Holland's Jacob Elzinga. He scored in 1.15.1kr over Ewald F. Boko (Super Arnie-Blackberry Hanover) and Conrad Lugauer with third to Ejton Attack (Gigant Neo-P'bird Mon Amie) with Bjorn Goop reining for trainer Tomas Malmqvist.
