OPGLABBEEK, Netherlands, April 25, 2021–Edward Gal and Glock’s Total U.S. easily won the Sentower Dressage Festival CDI3* Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday for domination of this event by the 51-year-old rider and the two Totilas sons he competed.

Edward and Total U.S., a nine-year-old Hanoverian stallion, were awarded 83.735% for the musical performance, two days after capturing the Grand Prix. Glock’s Toto Jr., a year older than Total U.S. and also ridden by Edward, placed second in the Grand Prix then went on to win the Grand Prix Special.

Adelinde Cornelissen on Aqied was second on 76.810% with compatriot Marlies van Baalen on Ben Johnson third on 76.740%.

Adelinde was a Dutch team rider on Parzival in the same period when Edward was competing Totilas before the partnership ended after sweeping the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.
