Nineteen-year-old Lisa Nooren could drive home in a brand new car from Donaueschingen on Sunday, after winning the CSI3* Grand Prix aboard her stunning stallion VDL Groep Sabech d'Ha (Qredo de Paulstra x Talent Platiere).
The Dutch super talent certainly has a liking to this venue, last year she won two competitions at the event and finished as number eight in the Grand Prix. With a clear round, and a time of 53.08 seconds Nooren was by far the fastest in today's jump-off in this 1.60m competition taking home yet another win at this traditional German event.
Almost two seconds behind on the clock followed Ireland's Cameron Hanley – last year's Grand Prix winner in Donaueschingen – on the promising 9-year-old Cas (Indoctro x Numero Uno) to take care of the runner-up position. Third was French rider Nicolas Deseuzes aboard the French bred 9-year-old Topaze Latour (Diamant de Semilly x Narcos II, with almost three and a half seconds separating him from Nooren.
Home rider Marcel Marschall and Argentina's Ramiro Quintana completed the top five, both with clear rounds in the jump-off.
