Max Kühner made it a double in Magna Racino Friday, as he followed up on Thursday’s win with yet another one in the Gold Tour. Like on Thursday, the win came on the Cardento-son Clooney 35 and against 82 riders in the 1.45 jump-off class. The German rider had a time of 31.49, while home rider Anton Martin Bauer ended second aboard the French bred Nausica Tame (by Flipper D’Elle) with the time 33.12. Not only was Max first, he was also third aboard Rahmannshof's Zwitser (by Lupicor).
In Neumünster, the CSI3* show's biggest class was a 1.50 speed class and it went to Gerco Schröder and Vicky Gold (by Andiamo). With a time of 50.37, the Dutch rider was over a second ahead of home rider Andreas Kreuzer on Baquita (by Baloubet du Rouet) who crossed the finish line at 51.42. Third was Wener Muff aboard Zwinulana (by Phin Phin). There were no less than 23 clears in this 50-rider class, and many took it easy to prepare the horses for the rest of the weekend.
At the Arctic Equestrian Games, it was Geir Gulliksen who took home the Big Tour. The class had 53 riders competing for the win, and fifteen of them went on to the jump-off. Aboard Marlon Zanotelli's former ride Edesa S Banjan (by Toulon), Jimmy took the win 0,7 seconds ahead of Sofia Kroon on Rolex (by Athletico). Dutch rider Suzanne Tepper was third on Labor´s Wonderboy (by Indoctro). “This is my class,” Jimmy smiled afterwards, as he also won last year aboard Storm 16. Of Edesa S Banjan Geir says; “I’ve never had such a good horse in the big classes. It’s so elastic, and never has trouble reaching over the back poles. It’s a true championship horse.”
Nadja Peter-Steiner won the Gold Tour in Oliva riding Lucifer Platiere (by Quidam de Revel). The Swiss rider was fractions ahead of Koen Vereecke on Allegro van de Donkhoeve (by Mr. Blue), while Marc Bettinger was third on Quannan R (by Kannan).
