Watch Michael Owen’s Brown Panther in German Derby
Dedicated horseracing channel Racing UK will be showing the German Derby on Sunday, featuring the Michael Owen-owned Brown Panther.
The race is due off at 4.35pm (BST) as the England and Manchester United striker bids to follow up his first Royal Ascot win with a Classic victory on a horse described by the German media as "the best three-year-old in the world!"
