Together with Kühner, the 11 year old gelding by Clinton x Calvaro has had great results at international Grand Prix level and in December last year the pair won the 1.55 Gaston Glock's Championat von Salzburg. "Clintop has been one of my top horses over the last years, and during this winter and summer season he has been very consistent in every Grand Prix he has jumped. This has also brought with it a lot of interest in him, and when you as a rider also have a business to run there eventually comes a time where you have to sell," Max Kühner comments to World of Showjumping.

Kühner bought Clintop 2 as a six year old, and has produced the horse up to top level. "This is my main job; I buy young horses and build them up. I usually have them for several years before they are sold, like with Clintop. Luckily I now have a few very good seven and eight year olds in the stable, so I already have some new prospects for the future," Kühner says.
