HAMBURG, Germany, May 15–Helenhof’s Carabas, the former Danish team horse now back being ridden by Oliver Luze, won the Hamburg Dressage Derby Grand Prix Special Saturday, but the newly emerging Currency DC from the United States caused the biggest buzz in taking second place.

Oliver started Carabas, now 12 years old, before being ridden by Andreas Helgstrand of Denmark who competed the stallion in the 2009 European Championships.

The winning combination scored 72.083 per cent with Susan Dutta on Currency DC second on 68.667 per cent second and Kathleen Keller on Wonder FRH in this place with 68.417 per cent.

Susan who is based in Wellington, Florida but has been working with Rudolf Zeillinger in Germany since last year has competed Currency DC on this winter’s Sunshine Tour and in a handful of German shows.

“We’re right on target,” Susan said after the ride on the 10-year-old Oldenburg gelding owned by her husband’s Tim Dutta, Inc. who flew over from the U.S. to watch the competition.

“He was really good. The passage, extended trot and half passes are his strength so we started well. His piaffe is still a little green. I can’t complain.

“He felt very confident, secure in his work, not looking around, listening to me.

“Curry is a treat to ride.

“It’s the best work we’ve done so far. It’s a great day and we’re going to enjoy it.”

She said she plans to stick to the schedule organized by Rudolf Zeillinger of competitions in Poland and France in June.

Although she had not targeted the U.S. selection trials at Gladstone, New Jersey  for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in August, if the horse continues to develop as well as he has then “it looks more and more” like Gladstone will be on the calendar.
