BUDAPEST, Sept. 26, 2020–Morgan Barbançon and Sir Donnerhall II OLD posted a personal best score to win the World Cup Grand Prix Saturday, the first Big Tour victory in more than two years for France’s top combination.

Morgan and the 14-year-old Oldenburg stallion scored 72.457% for the win, eclipsing the previous best of 72.369% set at the end of last year. The pair were on France’s team at the 2019 European Championships and also competed at the World Cup Final, as the combination did when competing for Spain in 2018.

Austria’s Christian Schumach and Donna Karacho were second on 70.935% with Ireland’s Anna Merveldt on Esporim third on 69.674%.

The Freestyle is scheduled for Saturday to decide points to qualify for the World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden next April
