Champions League Series brightens horseracing

Eleven German group races–including all seven of the country’s Group 1’s–will comprise the German Racing Champions League Series, which will score the first through fifth-placed horses in each race in a points system and offer prizes for the leading horse, trainer and jockey at the end of the season.
