He definitely never misses a chance to shine: Daniel Deusser, the unbeatable man of season two of the Longines Masters, did it again tonight in the Longines Speed Challenge. On Saturday night, he was the fastest man in the world that nobody could catch.

The day had started pretty well for the world number one and his 10-year-old mare Happiness van’t Paradijs (Obourg x Quick Lauro Z) with a victory in the AsiaWorld-Expo Trophy, and then the pair went on to win the Longines Speed Challenge as well. “Twice I jumped the Longines Speed Challenge, twice I didn’t do the round I wanted. Tonight I had a little more control of my mare, she is in good shape and it was a great day. I just went for it and it payed off,” the winner smiled.

The German rider stole the victory from Swiss rider Pius Schwizer on Leonard de la Ferme CH (Landjuweel x Indigene de Corday), who for a long time was sitting in the blue leader chair, for only 20 hundredths of seconds. 2016 titleholder Bertram Allen, was the last one to be feared, and moved Italy's Lorenzo de Luca from the podium. After a victory in the Longines Grand Prix of Los Angeles, a third place in Paris and other prestigious victories over the last six months, Daniel Deusser confirmed his current supremacy on the international showjumping scene.

The Longines Grand Prix, the major class of the weekend will take place tomorrow afternoon. Daniel Deusser is obviously a favorite, even if he anticipates it with all the sobriety he is capable of: “The biggest class is tomorrow. Equita is in great shape and I hope to maybe have a clear in the first round. If it works that way, we’ll see what we can do."
