The only 18 year old Angelina Herröder took her biggest win ever when she ended on top of the Grand Prix in Dortmund. Olaf Petersen jr had built a really big course that was a huge challenge for both riders and horses. The triple combination with a vertical - oxer - vertical as 9 a, b and c caused a lot of problems, but faults spread out all over the course.
Nine riders made it to the jump-off. It turned out to be a jump-off with several opportunities to leave strides out, and to do some short turns. Albert Zoer and Sam (Sable Rose x Ahorn) started off the jump-off with eight faults, and after Albert Jan Wernke with Queen Mary (Contendro x Caretino) ended the course on four faults.
Angelina Herröder and Pico's Boy (Pik Labionics x Grannus) didn't go for the shortest turns, but had a fantastic flow and rhythm around the course - cleared it and went up in the lead at 39.73 seconds where she stayed until the end! Sebastian Karshüning did a safe and clear round on his big jumping Taquila (Paramount x Acord), while David Will really went for it aboard Colorit (Coriano x Capitol). David was almost three seconds faster than Angelina, but with the last fence down he had to settle for fifth place in the end.
Lady Capitol (Lancer x Capitol) looked a bit tired in the jump-off, and Henrik von Eckermann had to see three poles fall to the ground. Kevin Staut entered the jump-off with his new ride Quismy des Vaux (Dollar Dela Pierre x Super de Bourriere) and even though it was their first Grand Prix together it looked like this new pair had known each other for ever, and they went in on second place at 40.44 seconds.
Marc Houtzager got the a-element of the combination down on Opium VS (Polydor x Bromio xx). Lars Nieberg was last to go with Leonie W (Larenco x Böckmann's Grandeur) and after going all in to the last fence he secured the third place crossing the finsh line on 40.63 seconds.
