MECHELEN, Belgium, Dec. 28, 2015–Patrik Kittel and Delaunay posted a personal best score to capture the World Dressage Masters CDI5* Grand Prix Freestyle Monday to wrap up a year in which the nine-year-old Oldenburg gelding moved into the top 40 in the world.

Patrick and Delaunay (Dr. Doolittle x Feinbrand) were awarded 78.575 per cent in the final international dressage competition of 2015. Their previous best Freestyle result was 78.475 per cent set at Kaposvár, Hungary two months ago.

This was the eighth victory in 10 starts for the German-based rider and Delaunay since March this year.

Delaunay is owned with the family of Patrik’s Australian wife, Lyndal Oatley and is one of four horses competed by the Swedish Olympian at international Big Tour.

Tommie Visser of the Netherlands rode VarioHippique’s Vingino to second place on 76.075 per cent with Finland’s Terhi Stegars on Axis TSF in third on 75.575 per cent.
