GCT Hamburg: Don VHP Z takes GP

15 / 05 / 2018
35 combinations started in the tough CSI5* Grand Prix of GCT Hamburg. Among them, 7 were advanced to the jump-off. Harrie Smolders, the current number 1 on the world ranking, and Don VHP Z were the second starters of the jump-off. The large canter of the Diamant de Semilly x Voltaire-son was a big advantage in this jump-off, which mainly consisted of long lines. Smolders and Don VHP Z finished clear in a fast 37.97 seconds. The victory was theirs.

In the final at 1.45m level for eight-year-old horses, Henrik von Eckermann rode Que Bueno de Hus Z (Que Guapo x Canto) to third place.The competition was exciting. The complete top three crossed the finish line in the same second. In the first qualifier, von Eckermann and the Zangersheide registered gelding ended in sixth place. Also in the second qualifier they were clear and placed.

For Clintrexo Z and Christian Ahlmann there was a fifth place in the German jumping and dressage derby. The nine-year-old stallion of Clintissimo Z x Rex Z, bred by Studbook Zangersheide, set a fast time, but due to an unfortunate bar they dropped a few places in the classification.
