After today´s World Cup leg in Neumünster Danish Daniel Bachmann Andersen and Blue Hors Zack finished at the podium as no 3, and they are now at a shared 4th position at the World Cup ranking with just two legs more, in Gothenburg and s´Hertogenbosch.
And from the entry list for Gothenburg he seem to be able to keep his spot inside the first 9 combinations which are secured into the finals.
Personal best for today´s Grand Prix freestyle
With today´s test they also seems to very well on form, and today´s freestyle fits very well and is shown with nice harmony and power. The power is very much expressed by half passes, both series with top quality and covers a lot of ground, and huge sit and nice balance for the pirouettes. Also today´s passage and piaffe tours are with more relaxation and accuracy.
Breeding stallion and top athlete
Rigth now Daniel and Zack looks like a very attractive combination for this summers big championship WEG in Tryon. But being a high frequented breeding stallion, and a top sport athlete is not really the ideal combination, and right now the breeders actually do have more attractive opportunities using his sons.
As a good example the successful Dante Weltino OLD with Swedish Therese Nilshagen in the saddle will only have to concentrate about the sport in 2018 like he did in 2017, and he will therefor not be available for the breeders.
