Oaks nominated EUPHORIE wins impressively on debut

Gestüt Röttgen's PROTECTIONIST daughter EUPHORIE made a very strong career debut today and immediately showed potential to qualify for the favorites' circle at this year's German Oaks. The Markus Klug-trained three-year-old had Andrasch Starke on board for an impressive gate-to-wire run in maiden race run over 1700 metres, where she still proved a little green in the final straight, but found the post just in the perfect place for her in the end.
EUPHORIE possesses a very interesting pedigree. Her dam ELORA, a sister to Gr.1 winner ENORA, is one of Röttgen's top mares whose offspring include the Gr.2-placed EL LOCO and the Black Type horses ENISSA and ELORA PRINCESS.
