HAGEN, Germany, Sept. 25, 2020–Isabell Werth and DSP Quantaz won the Horses & Dreams CDI4* Grand Prix Friday for the eighth straight victory since the beginning of the partnership almost 17 months ago. German team mate Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on Zaire-E was runner-up with Great Britain’s Charlotte Fry on Dark Legend posting a personal best to place third.
Isabell and the 10-year-old German Sport Horse gelding scored 79.913%, just shy of the personal best of 80.348% set two months ago at Achleiten, Austria, the home show of Victoria Max-Theurer, owner of the horse. The pair began Big Tour in May last year with only one of nine starts not being a win.
Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and Zaire-E placed second on 77.500%. Jessica and the 16-year-old KWPN mare are ranked 12th in the world but has been overshadowed in the past year by the rider’s success on TSF Dalera BB that has boosted the pair to third in the world.
Great Britain’s Charlotte Fry and Dark Legend posted a personal best 76.717% for third in the pair’s first competition since their previous best of 76.413% in February, prior to coronavirus lockdowns throughout much of the world.
The partnership of Charlotte and the 12-year-old KWPN gelding has seen them compete at European Championships at Young Rider in 2017, Under-25 in 2018 and senior level last year.
Germany’s Frederic Wandres on Duke of Britain also posted a personal best 76.696% for fourth.
Sweden’s experienced team combination of Therese Nilshagen and Dante Weltino placed fifth on 75.956%.
The next three placings were all with personal best scores.
Victoria Max-Theurer and Abegglen FH NRW were fifth on 75.848% in the first international competition outside the pair’s home at Achleiten. Victoria, a four-time Olympian and the 10-year-old Westfalen gelding competed at three CDI4* at Achleiten in July and August, placing second in all six starts.
Finland’s Henri Ruoste rode Kontestro DB to a personal best score of 74.848% in the fourth Grand Prix since beginning international Big Tour competition seven months ago. The previous best for Henri and the 10-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding was 74.065% posted two months ago.
Laura Tomlinson and DSP Rose of Bavaria scored a personal best 74.174% in their 10 months at Big Tour. The previous high was 73.369% set a month ago by the British Olympic team gold medal rider and the 10-year-old German Sport Horse mare.
