AACHEN, Germany, May 29, 2018–America’s Shelly Francis rode Danilo to victory at the Aachen Dressage Days CDI3* Grand Prix Tuesday, the first ever European Big Tour win for the rider seeking a spot on the United States World Equestrian Games team.

Shelly and the 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding that stayed in Europe after competing at the World Cup Final in Paris last month, scored 72.261 per cent to edge past Swedish Olympic rider Juliette Ramel on Wall Street JV placing second on 72.239 per cent. Finland’s Henri Ruoste on Roccabar was third on 71.457 per cent.

Shelly, 59 years old of Loxahatchee, Florida and Danilo, owned by Patricia A. Stempel, are on the United States Elite squad. The duo was one of nine combinations named by the U.S. Equestrian Federation to compete in Europe to decide the four horses and riders for The Dutta Corp. American team at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina in September.

Shelly, who has been successful on the Adequan Global Dressage Festival winter circuit in Wellington, Florida with Danilo and Doktor, last competed on a world championship team at the WEG in Rome in 1998.
