Quotes after the Mercedes-Benz Championat of Hamburg

Thursday, 09 May 2013

Uppity getting some well deserved treats from Madeleine. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson."I thought about the car already yesterday and that I would try to buy it from the winner, as we really need a new car and I like this one. Now I only have to buy half of the car from our sponsor, so of course I'm very happy. It is a fantastic car," Marc Houtzager said happily after winning a Mercedes CLA.

Marc also shared a little info about his horse Sterrehof's Uppity: "Uppity has mostly been going to shows as my second horse. It was only in Den Bosch that I took him with as a first horse and let him do the World Cup, as I wanted to ride him in the speed class in the final. He has a fantastic attitude, he is naturally fast and he always does his best."

Christian Ahlmann ended second with Lorena and said this on the press conference: "I'm really pleased with Lorena, it is the second time she jumps outdoors and she did it really great. Normally I would have been happy with being second, but today I'm a bit upset as I had the same thoughts as Marc about the car - but with me it will stay as a thought," Christian laughed. "But I believe that the audience got to see great sport and a really good jump-off."

"I do have Codex One here and he has been jumping good and is supposed to jump on Saturday, but with the form that Lorena showed today she could jump on Saturday as well so we will see," Christian said about his choice of horse for Saturday's Global Champions Tour Grand Prix.

Third place went to Thomas Voss with Carena: "My mare was fantastic today. I'm really pleased with how she presented herself and I'm really happy with my third place. Christian sounds like the first looser, but I feel like a winner!"
