JOHN DEERE AWARD
Dr Christoph Berglar, who bred and campaigned Novellist (Ire) (Monsun), has been named the recipient of the John Deere Award as outstanding breeder in the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series and Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships. The award is given annually to the breeder with the highest number of points accumulated based on first place finishes in the challenge series or championship races.
Novellist toped the rankings with his Group 1 victories in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Grouser Pries von Baden.
“We are delighted to receive this award from John Deere,”said Dr. Berglar. “For us, Novellist was a great blessing and blessings teach us powerful lessons. Novellist taught us joy, humility and gratitude.”
