DONAUESCHINGEN, Germany, Sept. 16, 2017–Isabell Werth and Don Johnson FRH won the CDI4* Grand Prix Saturday to log the 16th straight victory for the German superstar and the 16-year-old gelding.

Isabell and the Hanoverian, ranked No. 6 in the world, were awarded 77.940 per cent for the win that continued the streak that began last November. It also came a few hours after Isabell had ridden QC Flamboyant OLD to a record score in winning the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal qualifier for the final of the German small tour championship.

German team mate Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, returning to competition for the first time since giving birth to a baby boy, her first child, a month ago, placed second on Unee BB with a score of 76.640 per cent. Jessica had not competed Unee BB since February.

Benjamin Werndl, Jessica’s brother, rode Daily Mirror to third place on 72.000 per cent.

 

 

Isabell and Don Johnson, on German teams at the 2013 and 2015 European Championships, have the second longest string of wins of top combinations in the past decade for which records are available, behind only Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro that posted 22 straight victories in two years from April 2012 to April 2014. Isabell is ranked No. 1 in the world on Weihegold OLD, No. 4 on Emilio and sixth on Don Johnson.

 

The previous longest winning streak for Isabell was on Satchmo, her 2008 Olympic team gold medal mount, that logged 11 straight victories bracketed by the World Equestrian Games in 2006 and the European Championships in 2007, according to records reviewed by dressage-news.com.
