Isabella Boshoeve (3f Ready Cash-Yewel Boshoeve) was third driven by Heinz Wewering and also trainer by Tesselaar. Fourth was Isabella Granata (3f Corleone-Granata Aas) reined by trainer Rudolf Haller.

Sunday is the 123rd edition of the Deutsches Traber Derby for a purse of 215,633 euro and the Super Trot 2018 carrying a 70,000 euro total purse,

Saturday at Enghien the FR two year old fillies were on stage in race two for 32,000 euro and raced over 2150 meters autostart.
