STUTTGART, Germany, Nov. 22, 2014–Fabienne Lütkemeier and D’Agostino posted a personal best score to win the German Masters World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Saturday by less than one-quarter percentage point over fellow German Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on Unee BB.

The win by the World Games team gold medaiist and the 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding with a score of 80.600 per cent followed Friday’s Grand Prix victory, that was the first top placing for the pair since July, 2013.

And it was enough to vault the pair to the top of the Western European League World Cup standings with 44 points after the third of nine qualifiers leading to the Final in Las Vegas in mid-April.

The score was their best ever–the previous highest was in taking second place behind two-time World Cup champions Adelinde Cornelissen on Jerich Parzival at the World Cup qualifier in Lyon, France just three weeks ago–and confirmed their ranking as one of the top German combinations.

The 28-year-old Jessica who came with Unee BB to this show after five straight victories in the past two months, placed second on 80.325 per cent. The duo was the second reserve for the German team at the WEG.

Isabell Werth, who earlier in the day on Bella Rose won the CDI4* Grand Prix, was third on 79,500 per cent.

Two of the five judges placed Fabienne and D’Agostino first while two placed Jessica and Unee BB on top and one judge gave the nod to Dorothee Schneider of Germany on Forward Looking.

“It was a great competition and there was a big atmosphere in the arena today,” Fabienne said, “but D’Agostino felt really good and controlled and focused.

“After winning the Grand Prix yesterday I was just hoping we could do it again today, but I knew it would be difficult.”

Asked if she has the World Cup Final in her sights, she said, “it would be a dream to go to Las Vegas, but we will wait and see how the season goes. Danny (D’Agostino) will take a break now until Christmas and come back into work again in the new year and we will take it from there.”

Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, said “yesterday was more difficult. I was so happy with my piaffe as well as other key elements but maybe wasn’t as focused with my canter work as I should have been, and that is why I made the mistakes I did. Today, there were some small communication problems but that is absolutely normal and it can happen. I am really pleased with him,” she said of Unee BB, “and the audience were absolutely fantastic–it was brilliant!”

Isabell Werth joked afterwards that it was time for her 12-year-old horse, Don Johnson FRH, to do a bit of growing up.

“Johnny was a bit naughty,” she said, “he was playing with me a bit. That is his character anyways, nothing new, that is Johnny for you! He has a few more competitions ahead of him and it’s time for him to become more serious, especially when you bear in mind this is the horse I will be taking with me to the Final. The atmosphere in Las Vegas will be similar to here, with crazy spectators, so I need to do my best to get him back to earth before then!”

The league-leading 44 points for Fabienne and D’Agostino put them ahead of a trio of riders, Holland’s Adelinde Cornelissen, Denmark’s Agnete Kirk Thingaard and Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, all tied on 37 points. Valentina Truppa of Italy ranks fifth on 34 points, Marcela Krinke Susmelj of Switzerland on 32 and Isabell Werth, who won the World Cup in Las Vegas in 2007,  on 30 points.

Stockholm next week will be the fourth WEL event in qualifying series for the annual global championships decided by the Freestyle.
