Sunday, 27 April 2014
Holger Wulschner and Fine Lady (Forsyth x Drosselklang II) are on fire, and won the CSI4* Grand Prix in Hagen. The class was also the first leg of the DKB-Riders Tour 2014. The pair had four faults in the first round, but made it into the winning round where they were outstanding and ended up on top of the podium. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.
Marco Kutscher and Liberty Son 2 (Clooney x Lord Z) ended up with one time penalty in the first round, but being slow was no issue in the winning round - the couple ended as runners-up a little over a second behind the winners!Third place went to Rene Tebbel with Cooper (Colman x Limbus) who also made their way to the winning round after one time penalty in the first round. Half a second slower than Kutscher, Rene had to settle for the third place. Janne-Friederike Meyer was best of all the riders who were clear in the first round, when she ended fourth with the well-jumping Grace by Armitage also on a clean sheet against the clock. Carsten-Otto Nagel on Holiday by Solitour (Contendro I x Cascavelle) managed to be clear in both rounds as well, and ended fifth.German rider Markus Renzel with Cassydy (Corrado I x Alcatraz) ended sixth after a double clear round. Tailormade Esperanza de Rebel (Rebel Z x Corofino) with Sören Pedersen in the saddle took the seventh place - and was the slowest one of the riders who were clear in the jump-off. Julien Epaillard didn't manage to repeat his clear round from the first round and had to see one pole fall in the winning round - he thus had to settle for the eight place. Ninth place went to Santiago Lambre from Mexico with his Danish-bred Skovlundeg Cassius after 0-4 faults. Bruce Goodin also had four faults in the jump-off with Centina (Cento x Argentinus) and ended tenth. Sweden's Douglas Lindelöw looked a bit disappointed when he left the arena after having one pole down in the winning round with Casello (Casall x Carolus). Friday's winning couple Philipp Weishaupt with Tabea (Contendro x Fernando) qualified to the winning round with four faults where he ended up with eight faults.
