The 2021 schedule of Germany’s Nürnberger Burg-Pokal series for young Small Tour horses was announced Thursday with a lineup of 12 qualifiers beginning in late April leading to the final in Frankfurt the week before Christmas.

This will be the 30th year of the series that in 2020 was staged at the Shafhof, the home of the Linsenhoff/Rath family that organizes the event, as the coronavirus pandemic prevented it being held in the usual center in the city. Matthias Alexander Rath on Destacado FRH won the final of the Prix St. Georges Special final for horses aged seven to nine years.
