DEL MAR, California, April 26, 2019–Steffen Peters and Suppenkasper won the Dela Mar National World Cup Grand Prix Friday to maintain a record of seven straight victories for the year while Sabine Schut-Kery on Sanceo returned to competition from a 12-month injury timeout to be runner-up.

Steffen of San Diego and the 11-year-old KWPN gelding scored 75.960% for the win, the seventh in as many starts on the California circuit this year after earning team silver for the United States at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon last fall.

Sabine of Thousand Oaks, California and Sanceo, a 13-year-old Hanoverian stallion, were awarded 69.957% for runner-up in the first competition since this same event in 2018.

The duo that were on the 2015 Pan American Games gold medal team at small tour began their Big Tour career in January last year. However, after four months including riding on the U.S. gold medal team at the CDIO3* Nations Cup in Wellington, Florida and then the Del Mar National World Cup a month later, Sanceo was withdrawn from competition.

The pair was ranked No. 26 in the world and the third highest American combination at the time but with no results since have dropped to 480th.

Nick Wagman of Rancho Santa Fe on Don John was third on 69.217%.
