AALBORG, Denmark, May 17, 2019–Cathrine Dufour on Cassidy won the CDI* Grand Prix Special Friday, posting their second highest personal best score for the fourth straight victory in four starts this year.

Cathrine and the 16-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding scored 79.660%. Their highest Special score was 79.762% to win bronze at the 2017 European Championships.

The results for the Danish Olympic team pair came in the second show for the year, after a competition timeout that caused them to miss the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon.

Helene Melsen also of Denmark on Aston Martin was second on 69.936% with Sweden’s Denise Ljungkvist on Soega third on 69.447%.
