Peder Fredricson made the home crowds ecstatic when he won Saturday’s feature class the Gothenburg Trophy with H&M All In (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Fortune) at Gothenburg Horse Show.
38 horse and riders combinations lined up for the 1.55 class, and only six of them made it further to the jump-off. It was a difficult first round with faults spreading out all over the track and with the time allowed stopping three of the riders - Helena Persson with Bonzai H (Baloubet du Rouet x Caletto II), Jur Vrieling with Flash Dance v. Kalevallei (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Gottwald) and Marlon Zanotelli with Sweet de Beaufour (Diamant de Semilly x Kannan) - from participating in the jump-off.
Denmark’s Andreas Schou with Allstar (Oklund x Peter Pan) was first to go in the jump-off and he pulled off a great clear round in 35.10 seconds. The following three riders didn't have a chance to do anything about Andreas and his time with Billy Twomey on Tinka's Serenade (Tinka's Boy x African Drum) getting four faults, Kevin Staut on Ayade de Septon Et HDC (Wandor van de Mispelaere x Belle d'Avril du Mazy) being clear but in 35.62 seconds and Linda Heed on Bee Wonderful (Cagliostro 931 x Indus 530) getting eight faults.
Then it was time for Pius Schwizer with his new ride Caretina de Joter (Caretino x Contender) to enter the ring. The Swiss rider managed to cut the time down to 35.06 seconds and took over the lead.
Peder Fredricson was next up, and the audience held their breath as their home hope was speeding around the shortened track on H&M All In, that did the second Grand Prix in his life. The nine year old gelding definitely showed that he is a horse to look out for in the future when he produced a magic second round to take the win after bringing the time down to an unbelievable 34.13 seconds to wild celebrations in Scandinavium.
