After already winning classes in Compiègne, Opglabbeek, Lummen and Le Touquet over the past weeks and months, Irish rider Harry Allen and his 7-year-old mare Daredevil Z have now also managed to impress at the Longines Global Champions Tour in Stockholm! Allen and Daredevil Z, a daughter of Dominator 2000 Z and Pronto out of the breeding of Joëlle Leonard, competed three times in the classes for 7-year-old horses in the Swedish capital last weekend, in which they managed to secure two wins and a2nd place.

The start of their competition was immediately promising, as they became the winners of the 1.30m opening class on Friday morning. In both the1st and2nd stages, Allen and Daredevil Z managed to keep all the bars in place and with a finishing time of 31.10 seconds they managed to outclass the competition.

On Friday, a 1.35m speed class was then on the programme for the 7-year-old horses and in this, too, the duo managed to secure a top ranking. Once again, all the obstacles remained in the scoops and with a finishing time of 61.20 seconds, this time they secured2nd place in the standings.

The final class for the 7-year-olds was the morning class on Sunday, in which Allen and Daredevil Z were one of 10 combinations who managed to advance to the jump-off. As the eighth combination to start, they managed to put in another flawless performance and with a chrono time of 38.67 seconds they were exactly 10 hundredths of a second ahead of the competition.

It was also a successful weekend for British rider Ben Maher and the gelding Maddox vh Haringvliet Z, the son of Monte Bellini and Ogano Sitte bred by the Hoekstra family. Maddox vh Haringvliet Z jumped into the limelight at the World Breeding Championship For Young Horses last September, when he managed to win bronze in the 6-year-old horses under the saddle of Jelmer Hoekstra. Shortly afterwards, he was sold to Ben Maher, with whom he is therefore now also successful. Maher and Maddox vh Haringvliet Z started their show in Stockholm with a 3rd place on Friday, followed by a 5th place in the speed class on Saturday and a2nd place in the final class on Sunday.
