The late Campanologist, a multiple group I-winning son of Kingmambo, got his first black-type winner and first group winner when German-bred Langtang won a group III stakes Oct. 16 at Köln Racetrack in Germany.
Langtang is out of the unraced Oasis Dream mare La Vinchina and a half brother to group III winner Lacy (by Authorized). The juvenile colt is co-owned by Klaus Allofs and Langtang's breeder Stiftung Gestut Fahrhof. Gestut Fahrhof sold the colt for 65,000gns to Stroud Coleman Bloodstock at the 2015 Tattersalls October yearling sale through the Newsells Park Stud consignment.
After placing second in his debut and winning in his second start, Langtang earned black type in the group III Preis des Winterfavoriten / Premium-Dreierwette mit 10.000 Euro Garantieauszahlung. He won the one-mile race on a track labeled good by two lengths in a final time of 1:33.86. Andreas Wohler trains the colt.
A Sheikh Mohammed homebred, Campanologist was out of the unraced Sadler's Wells mare Ring of Music, who is a half sister to graded/group stakes winners Singspiel, Rahy, and Rakeen. The stallion died at age 10 in December 2015 after suffering a bout of colic upon his return to Germany from Argentina.
Campanologist stood at Gestut Fahrhof in Germany for €6,500.
