AACHEN, Germany, July 16– Imke Schellekens Bartels of the Netherlands won a closely contested class on the 10-year-old gelding Toots by Jazz with a score of 70.132 per cent. Less than one percentage point separated the first five placings. Most of the competitors of this class are also competing in the Aachen CDIO.

Second place, with 69.925 per cent, went to Brigitte Wittig who rode a very harmonious test on her seven-year-old gelding, Balmoral W, by Breitling. Balmoral was the youngest horse in the class.
