Hamburg. 54 horses are for that second day of racing the derby week on Wednesday (first of the six starts: 5.45 p.m./admission free) on the Horn racecourse reported. They gallop around 56,900 euros. The nine starters have to cover the longest distance to earn prize money in the fourth race (7.30 p.m.), the “ Hamburger”.
