Union-Rennen winning-Laccario gave his conditioner Andreas Wohler his fifth win the Gr.1 Deutsches Derby
The Hof Ittlingen homebred makes it five Deutsches Derby winners to trace back to the 1956 Gr.1 German One Thousand Guineas and Gr.1 Oaks heroine Liebeslied, who is also the ancestress of the 1971 scorer Lauscher and 1987 victor Lebos.
(Gr.1) July 7 at Hamburg, with the Joseph Tuite-trained Surrey Thunder back in fifth under Jason Watson.
He is sired by Scalo, another who won the Gr.1 Preis von Europa (2010). Scalo originally stood at Haras du Logis Saint-Germain in Normandy but has spent the past two seasons covering at Haras de Gelos near Pau in southwest France.
Laurea is also ancestress of Italian champion 3-year-old filly Lovelyn and Canadian grade 2 winner and U.S. grade 1 runner-up Lauro, a son of Monsun who has been in strong demand as a jumps stallion at Hayes Stud in County Meath in the past two seasons thanks to his son Dlauro.
An easy winner between the flags at Bellharbour, Dlauro was sold to Joseph O'Brien for £410,000 at last year's Tattersalls Cheltenham Festival Sale and won a Punchestown bumper by 11 lengths on his rules debut in May.
