Agadir Gold heads to the Czech Derby

The metropolitan season continued on the first Saturday in June, the highlights were two Class A races. The accompanying children's program brought the high number of visitors and they saw unexpected winners in both main races of the day.

The 70th Factoring České spořitelny June Stakes (Class A, 11f, 150 ths. CZK), the main trial race for the Czech Derby, wa won by bay colt Agadir Gold, one length of Charmbruck and neck of Fascing Rock. Trainer Radek Holčák and owners, Mr. and Mrs. Topič, won this race for the first time, jockey Jan Verner won for the second time (the champion of the season 2020 won another race of the day and reached the 46th lifetime double). 

The undefeated Classa was the top-favorite of the 18th Nora Jeane Stakes (Class A, 1m, 3yo+ f+m, 150 ths. CZK) but finished unplaced. The third of Czech 1000 Guineas last month Comming Pulse achieved her first career win and retaliated the defeat from the fillies classic of Dally Top, who placed second (by a half length) again. Lady Mazie, 6yo Slovak guest, finished third and was the best of older mares in the field. Two times Czech amateur champion Sabina Mokrošová, who rides as an apprentice now, achieved her first Class A win, trainer and owner Miroslav Nieslanik and his daughter Eva, won this race for the second time.
