ACHLEITEN, Austria, July 24, 2020–Isabell Werth rode DSP Quantaz to victory in the CDI4* Grand Prix Friday and become the only rider in history to score more than 80% at Big Tour Grand Prix on four different horses.
Isabell, who celebrated her 51st birthday three days ago, scored 80.348% on the 10-year-old German Sport Horse. This was the German superstar’s second Big Tour event this month when international horse sports resumed after a break of 3 1/2 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Scores for Isabell and Quantaz ranged from a high of 82.065%, a score of 81.413%, 80.870%, one of 78.913% and the lowest 78.478%,
The other horses on which she logged scores of at least 80% are her world No. 2 Weihegold OLD, her Olympic team gold and individual silver medal mount and the World Cup Finals in 2017, 2018 and 2019; No. ranked Bella Rose on which she captured team gold at both the 2014 and 2018 World Equestrian Games, and Emilio, on which she is ninth on the world standings.
She was already the only rider to have earned 80% at Grand Prix on three horses before this competition.
Isabell rode Quantaz, owned by Austria’s four-time Olympian Victoria Max-Theurer, in both post-coronavirus events at this venue that is the home of the Max-Theurer family.
Vici, who is also coached by Isabell, placed second on Rockabilly on a personal best 73.783%. The previous high score on the 10-year-old Westfalen stallion was 73.565% logged here three weeks ago.
Germany’s Frederic Wandres making the Big Tour debut on Sa Coeur was awarded 72.326% for third place.
