It was her first time going over 2,400 metres and, while some experts expressed concerns, her connections had no worries and neither had she. PROTECTIONIST's AMAZING GRACE shone in a brilliant performance in today's €70,000 T. v. Zastrow-Stutenpreis at Baden-Baden that left no questions open as to whether she can stay or not. The Waldemar Hickst-trained four-year-old was piloted by French veteran jockey Olivier Peslier, who settled her midfield and took her to task around the final turn. AMAZING GRACE easily found the higher gear and rolled past the field, eating up her rivals on the go and scoring confidently by one and a half lengths. It was a picture perfect run by the mare for whom this was was the second Gr.2 win of her career.
