AMSTERDAM, Jan. 26, 2019–Isabell Werth on Weihegold OLD led a German sweep of the World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Saturday to give her the first of two scores needed for the partnership to make a bid for a third straight annual global championship title.

The world’s No. 1 combination were awarded 86.810 per cent and have two more Western European League qualifiers to insure a ticket to the World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden in April.

The German World Equestrian Games team pair of Dorothee Schneider and Sammy Davis Jr. were second on 82.675 per cent, enough to edge to the top of the Western European League standings.

German Olympic and World Games rider Helen Langehanenberg on the American-owned Damsey FRH placed third on 82.420 per cent, enough to move the pair up the rankings but behind Dorothee and fellow German Benjamin Werndl and Isabell as defending champion. Of the nine places allocated to Western Europe at the final, no more than three from the same country can go.

Sweden’s Patrik Kittel on Delaunay placed fourth on 82.290 per cent and appears likely to get a start at Gothenburg as may seven-time Olympian Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén and Don Auriello boosted by results at the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida.

Denmark’s Daniel Bachmann Andersen on Blue Hors Don Olymbrio posted a personal best score of 80.400 per cent to finish in sixth place.

Ireland’s Judy Reynolds on Vancouver also logged a personal best 80.290 per cent to slot one place further back.

“I’m really delighted to break 80 per cent and set a new Irish international record score,” Judy said. “It has been coming for a while and great to achieve it here in Amsterdam in a very hot class.”

Isabell Werth has single qualifying results with Emilio and Bella Rose but wants to qualify Weihegold and Emilio as a backup. The defending champion needs only to complete two events for a start at the Final–

Isabell and Weihegold, a 14-year-old Oldenburg mare, captured the World Cup in 2017 in Omaha and in 2018 in Paris. A third straight title would match the achievements of the Netherlands’ Anky van Grunsven who won three straight World Cup titles on Bonfire in 1995, 1996 and 1997 and again on Salinero in 2004, 2005 and 2006.

The next Western European World Cup event is scheduled for Neumünster, Germany Feb. 14-17.
