NEUMÜNSTER, Germany, Feb. 17, 2019–Isabell Werth and Weihegold won the World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday to clinch a start at the championship Final and bid for a third straight title. German Olympian Helen Langehanenberg on Damsey FRH placed ahead of the rest of the field to likely assure the pair a start in the World Cup Final while Ireland’s Judy Reynolds on Vancouver K posted a personal best score and an Irish freestyle record to give her a shot at competing in a third indoor world championship.

With only one more Western European qualifying competition remaining on the indoor calendar of 10 events, the runner-up placing for Helen and the American-owned Damsey on a score of 83.825 per cent and Dorothee Schneider, celebrating her 50th birthday Sunday, on Sammy Davis Jr. along with the victory by Isabell and Weihegold may have determined the maximum of three invitations that Germany can earn to the Final. Benjamin Werndl’s fourth place on Daily Mirror did not earn the combination enough points to overtake the other German combinations.

The world’s No. 1 partnership of Isabell and the 14-year-old Oldenburg mare for a score of 86.810 per cent fulfilled the requirement of two qualifiers to earn a start in Gothenburg, Sweden in April to try to win the title the German Olympic team gold medal pair captured in Omaha in 2017 and Paris in 2018. Isabell is also seeking to qualify Emilio on which she is ranked fourth in the world as a backup.

Isabell and the horse on which she won the Finals in 2017 and 2018 needed only to complete the freestyle Sunday as the second competition required to earn a start at the final in Gothenburg, Sweden in April.

Helen, 2013 World Cup champion on Damon Hill, moved to the top of the Western European League with Damsey, owned by Louise Leatherdale of Long Lake, Minnesota and Susanne Meyer. Helen and the 17-year-old Hanoverian stallion were passed over for the German team at last September’s Tryon World Equestrian Games following a five-month “baby” break in the first half of 2018.

The score of 82.750 per cent for Judy Reynolds and the 17-year-old KWPN gelding Vancouver K, owned by her parents Joe and Kathleen was a new Irish international record. The duo’s s performance of their new “Lord of the Dance”-themed freestyle program, saw Judy break her own record score of 80.290 per cent set last month in Amsterdam and become the first Irish rider to place in the top three in the Western European League. Judy and Vancouver K competed in the World Cup Final at Gothenburg in 2016 and at Omaha the following year as well as the 2016 Olympics and the 2018 Tryon and 2014 Caen World Games.

The last of 10 qualifiers in the Western European League is scheduled for ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands a month from now.
