KAPOSVAR, Hungary, Oct. 12, 2014–Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on Unee BB won the World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday with a personal best score and on her Zaire new to Big Tour captured the Special to dominate this World Cup Central European League finale event.

Jessica, a reserve on Unee for Germany’s World Equestrian Games team at Normandy, scored 82.625 per cent to win the Freestyle over her brother, Benjamin Werndl on Der Hit with 78.700 per cent and fellow German Uwe Schwanz on Di Sandro in third on 74.625 per cent.

Russia’s Elena Sidneva on Romeo Star placed fourth on 73.425 per cent to earn enough points for a total of 48 to place her at the top of the Central European standings in the last of the league’s seven World Cup events and assure an invitation to the Final in Las Vegas next April. Tatiana Dorofeeva also of Russia did not compete at this Hungarian event but was second in the end of season standings in the CEL that is entitled to two places in the Final.

However, the weekend belonged to the 27-year-old Jessica von Bredow-Werndl whose victories in the Freestyle on Unee and the Special on Zaire, a 10-year-old KWPN mare competed at international Grand Prix for the first time, followed wins in the qualifying Grand Prix a day earlier.

Jessica and Zaire scored 76.078 per cent to claim the Special ahead of Austria’s Ulrike Prunthaller on Bartlgut’s Limotas in second on 72.510 per cent with Poland’s Mateusz Cichon on Sini Santos RF third on 64.020 per cent.

Her Freestyle win means Jessica takes 20 points into the fiercely competitive Western European League, the eight-event series that starts at Odense, Denmark this week.

She and Unee (Gribaldi – Dageraad), whose previous best Freestyle score before the latest performance was 82.425 per cent at Neumünster, Germany last February, are looking to make their second appearance at a World Cup Final, having placed seventh in their debut at Lyon, France last April.
