Brant’s Dr. Zempf lands two thousand guineas lawsuit

Ger Lyons has gotten off to a good start in the new campaign and, less than a week after winning the Madrid Handicap feature with Markaz Panama won the Ballylinch Stud Red Rocks Two Thousand Guineas Trial on April 2 with Peter Brant’s Dr. Zempf .

You’d think winning major awards every weekend would be something to celebrate, even for a manager as established as Lyon, but there shouldn’t be any overreaction after the Black Angel colt crossed the line ahead on Saturday at Leopardstown.

Dr Zempf may have won overall under Colin Keane, but as far as Lyons was concerned, it was “a lot done, but there is still more to do”.

He explained: “You can only beat what’s in front of you. We won’t come out with champagne or anything, but we’re happy. He’s still in the pot for the Guineas – if we have a colt from the Guineas , it’s him .”

Out of Siyouni Mare London souvenir Dr. Zempf was a $569,731 purchase by White Birch Farm/Demi O’Byrne from the consignment of breeder Stratford Place Stud at Tattersalls October 2002 Yearling Sale.

Lyons added: “He has a race under his belt now and we can go to Newmarket at the end of the month if we need to, but we are a long way from a 120 rated horse. There should be a lot of improvement in him. , and there must be some for where he is going.”
