Last year’s G1 Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Torquator Tasso (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}), a brave runner-up in G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth QIPCO S., returned to coach Marcel Weiss’ Mulheim base on Sunday afternoon. His trainer is targeting G1 Grosser Preis von Baden on September 4 for the chestnut, who will then return to ParisLongchamp to try to win the Arc in a row on October 2.

“He was very well and had no problems with the journey,” said Peter-Michael Endres, part owner. “It’s no problem for him.

“Our thoughts now are to get him to Baden-Baden for his next race [in September] and then to Arc.

“It will be a similar route to last year. The only change is that he went to Ascot and it was the right decision.”

The 5-year-old opened his season with a surprise sixth goal in the G2 Grosser Preis der Badischen Wirtschaft match, but quickly returned to form with a 3 1/2 score in the G2 Grosser Hansa-Preis match at Hamburg on July 2 .

Endres added, “I think he can continue this [quicker] ground – as we have seen. On softer ground, some other horses are not as good as it. “

“The hospitality in Ascot is amazing. It was a very good journey. We wanted to win, but taking second place and also the way he did it, we are happy for that.”

“When he won the Arc, people thought the horses he beat weren’t as good as they used to think,” said Endres. “Now you think that pretty much the best 3-year-olds have problems with older horses – and it’s one of the best. So we are looking forward to returning to the Arc.”
