Saturday, 19 November 2011

Patrice Delaveau and Katchina Mail won the biggest class today. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.In the 1,55 m class "Price the GEZE GmbH" in Stuttgart Patrice Delaveau and Katchina Mail (Calvaro x Laudanum) were the fastest out of the 17 riders that went to the jump-off. Fourty riders entered the class and half of them qualified for the jump-off. Three riders decided not to ride; Carsten-Otto Nagel with Corradina (Corrado x Sandro), Billy Twomey with Romanov (Heartbreaker x Fedor) and Steve Guerdat with Nino des Buissonnets (Kannan x Narcos).

Lars Nieberg has a really interesting horse in Quiletta du Domaine. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum and the 8 year old Bella Donna (Baldini x Calido) gave their all in the jump-off and Bella Donna miraculously got over one of the verticals in the middle of the course after getting far too deep in. The time 34.74 put some pressure on the rest of the riders, but one after another bettered their time. Thomas Voss was the first one, and then Marc Houtzager got up in the lead, before David Will entered the course. Lars Nieberg and the well jumping little mare Quiletta du Domaine (Quick Star x Caletto) had a fantastic time and beat David with 2 hundreds of a second and he looked like a winner until Patrice Delaveau finished his round in 32.56 seconds.

David Will ended up third. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The only one who managed to be faster than Patrice was Denis Lynch on the 8 year old Crocant (Chalan x Corrado), but the last pole fell.

Several horses jumped amazing in this class; Romanov looked really good, as well as Ninja La Silla, S.I.E.C Ledgepoint, Heechhiem´s Tersina, Crocant, Sabrina, Cristallo, Nangaye de Kerganne and Palloubete d´Halong to mention some.

In a class with so many clears, it was surprisingly two of the favorites that got problems on the distance between fence 7 and 8a-b-c. Janne-Freiderike Meyer and Ludger Beerbaum both pulled up their horses and took on the combination one more time.
