Home hero Philipp Weishaupt and Coby 8 (Contagio x Escudo I) closed off Wednesday’s competitions at CHIO Aachen with a win in the 1.50m Prize of StädteRegion Aachen in memory of Landrat Hermann-Josef Pütz. 

Half-way into the class, Luciana Diniz (POR) was the leader with Vertigo de Desert (Mylord Carthago*HN x Robin II Z) after clocking the time of 33.44 in the second phase of the competition. However, Weishaupt managed to shave the time down to 32.50 – much to the appreciation of the Aachen-crowds who got a perfect close to the day with the German rider taking the win. 

“I did not have to do too much, Coby is so quick – I just had a nice rhythm from the start to the end and it played out well,” Weishaupt commented after his win.

Third place went to Martin Fuchs (SUI) and Chica BZ (Canturano x Berlin), while Felix Hassmann (GER) on Balance 30 (Balou du Rouet x Ex Libris) took fourth and Daniel Deusser (GER) on Killer Queen VDM (Eldorado v. Zeshoek x For Pleasure) fifth – the two latter making sure the host nation was well represented in the top five.

Although Weishaupt’s partnership with Coby is a relatively new one, it’s already highly successful. “I got Coby a few days before the Summer Series in Calgary. There I spent a bit of time with him, to see what was in him. He surprised me and was very successful – I think he won four classes while we were there. Coby is a super competitive, really fast and careful horse – I think he will go on to win a lot of classes,” Weishaupt said. 

Asked about his plan for the weekend, Weishaupt was not shy in his reply: “To win the Grand Prix of Aachen with Che Fantastica!”
