No less than 86 top-class duos went to the start line in Thursday's Glock’s CSI3* opening 1.40 class, with a track designed by Frank Rothenberger. Home rider Markus Saurugg proved that the still only eight year old Holsteiner mare Zita 94 (Stakkato x Carthago) had risen from being 'Queen of Young Horses' to become a CSI3* winner, taking the victory in 55.72 seconds. "She’s a very special horse and I offer my thanks to her breeders, the Kriegler family, for allowing me to ride her", said a very happy Markus Saurugg at the winner’s interview.

Just as free of faults as Markus Saurugg but around one second slower was runner-up Wilm Vermeir in the saddle on the nine-year-old Gentiane de la Pomme (Shindler De Muze x Diamant). Third place went to Hugo Simon, also from Austria.
