Danedream shortlisted for Horse of the Year title

Germany: Danedream, Pastorius and Novellist have been shortlisted for the 2012 German Horse of the Year title.

Danedream, winner of last year's King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, was a runaway winner of the title in 2011 and is a near certainty to repeat the feat this time around.

Trained by Peter Schiergen, Danedream was also victorious in Germany's most prestigious race - the Grosser Preis von Baden - with Pastorius and Novellist third and fourth.

Pastorius (Mario Hofer) and Novellist (Andreas Wöhler) finished first and second in the Deutsches Derby before going on to take all-aged Group 1s.

While the shortlist was voted on by the racing press, the overall title will be decided by a public vote.

Votes can be cast up to March 17 and the winner will be announced during racing at Cologne on April 1.

Votes by e-mail (to: 2012@Galopper-des-Jahres.com) are also allowed, and various prizes, all with a racing theme, will be drawn from among all those who voted for the winner.
