The CSI2* show in Oldenburg continued on Saturday with three classes, that saw Daniel Neilson, Reed Kessler and Guido Klatte jr. on top. The biggest class of the day was a 1.45 class which 26 riders had qualified for yesterday. The win in this class went to Britain’s talented Daniel Neilson riding Zigali P S (Kigali x Palfrenier). With a clear round and a time of 35.70 in the winning round, Daniel left German rider Sebastian Karshüning on Taquila (Paramount x Acord II) behind him – also he clear on 36.26 seconds. Third was Denmark’s Sören Pedersen riding the lovely Tailormade Cavetta (Careful x Grannus) with a four fault score on the fastest time of the day at 35.15 seconds.
The 1.45 class with a winning round went to Reed Kessler riding Ligist (Levantos II x Robin Z). The class was divided into eleven groups, with the best rider from each and three lucky losers moving onto the winning round to compete for the top prize. Coming in as second last to go Reed blew the socks of her competitors, as she set ‘Goose’ in top gear from the start – not once touching the brakes around the shortened track. Getting a really tight turn to the penultimate vertical, and then taking all the gallop she could down the final line to the last oxer – Reed cut of an incredible 1.55 seconds off Guido Klatte jr.’s time to push him down to second on Cornet’s Prinz (Cornet Obolensky x Almox Prints). Third went to another German rider; Jan Sprehe on Stakki (Stakkato Gold x Silvio I) with the time of 37.43 seconds.
The first class of the day – a 1.40 class – went to Guido Klatte jr. on Collado (Cassini I x L andgraf I). The German rider had one of thirteen clears in this speed class, and was followed by Carsten-Otto Nagel in second on Rarität (Carnute x Lord) and Belgium’s Jan Vinckier in third on Lordana (Lordanos x Argentinus).
