THERMAL, California, Nov. 20, 2020–Steffen Peters and Suppenkasper won the Thermal Desert Dressage CDI3* Grand Prix Friday to lengthen their undefeated streak to 14 this year while U.S. team mate Sabine Schut-Kery on Sanceo posted a personal best score for runner-up.

Steffen and the 12-year-old KWPN gelding scored 77.348% in the second Tokyo Olympic selection qualifying competition for the World Equestrian Games silver medal team partnership.
