Very close race for today's CDI4 Grand Prix victory in Munich - great international debut for Famoso and Benjamin Werndl

Just 0,5% between victory and 2nd place today

Today’s international Grand Prix for Grand Prix Special became a very close race.

Not unexpected Hubertus Schmidt showing a very strong performance with the young stallion Escolar this morning in Munich. Nothing seems to be a challenge during the test, and Hubertus is able to adjust whenever it is necessary. Easy and effortless with a happy athlete.

International 75% debut for Werndl with Famoso OLD

Today’s big surprise and with Benjamin Werndl with his also just 9 year old gelding Famoso OLD by Farewell III. They just entered the international Grand Prix scene with a solid well performed and expressive 75,413% test today. Lovely power expression all the way, nice suppleness through out the test, just a small issue for the zig-zag canter. Super nice piaffe / passage tours, nice activity and balance, nice series and good pirouettes.

The overall picture was very confident and with huge overview.
