MANNHEIM, Germany, May 9, 2022–Germany’s Matthias Alexander Rath and Destacado FRH won the CDI4* Grand Prix Special Monday on a personal best score for the second day.

Matthias and the nine-year-old Hanoverian stallion were awarded 76.277% to beat their three previous Special results posted over the past nine months. The pair set a personal best in the Grand Prix Sunday and the victory in the Special gave them three wins in four starts so far this year.

The duo was reserve champion at the World five-year-old championships and fourth at six years of age. The pair won the Burg-Pokal Final of Small Tour horses in 2020.

Isabell Werth and Superb, a 10-year-old Hanoverian mare, were second on 76.000% after placing fourth in the Grand Prix in only their second Big Tour competition.

Norway’s Isabel Freese and the Totilas son Total Hope OLD were third on 75.574% after capturing the Grand Prix Sunday.

The Paul Schockemöhle stable rider and Total Hope, a 10-year-old Oldenburg stallion sired by Totilas out of the mare Weihegold OLD, won the Burg-Pokal in 2019 and last year took Germany’s Louisdor Prize for developing Grand Prix.
