Felix Hassmann in the fast lane in GLOCK’s Perfection Tour
Having already taken third place yesterday in the CSI3* GLOCK’s Opening, German rider Felix Hassmann presented himself in top shape in the saddle of his Brazilian gelding SL Brazonado. Today, the duo were able to top this in GLOCK’s Perfection Tour, staged as an accumulator with joker over 1.40 m.
Of the twelve duos reaching the full score of 65 thanks to a penalty-free ride, Felix and his eleven-year-old grey horse were the fastest with 44.95 seconds and celebrated victory. "It’s great to win, but SL Brazonado is not so keen on the award ceremonies. That’s why his stable mate is allowed to stand here now”, said a smiling Felix in the winner’s interview.
First runner up was from Germany. Current Olympic winner, world and double European champion in eventing, Michael Jung, piloted his new horse Quite’s Prince over the finishing line in 46.43 seconds, taking second place. Third place went to Karel Cox (BEL). In the saddle of the Corrado I son Confidant, he completed the course of 320 m in 47.37 seconds.
Once more, Salzburg-based rider Jürgen Krackow, in the saddle of eleven-year-old KWPN mare Ailonka, provided the best hosting country result. With 65 points and a time score of 48.52 seconds he came sixth.
