Frederic Wandres and Duke of Britain head the field in the HAVENS Horsefeed-Prize
Frederic Wandres and Duke of Britain convincingly claimed the victory in the CDI4* Grand Prix, the HAVENS Horsefeed-Prize, ahead of the World Champion from the partner country of this year’s CHIO Aachen.
Frederic Wandres and his 16-year-old British Hanoverian-bred gelding, Duke of Britain, were the eighth pair to go in the HAVENS Horsefeed-Prize, the CDI4*-Grand Prix. There were 28 pairs in total in the class, and the field of participants was star-studded. Wandres and the Dimaggio son notched up 76.935 percent, which none of the following pairs managed to top.
As the last to go, the British World Champion, Charlotte Fry, still had the chance to spoil Wandres‘ triumph. Fry had saddled the Belgian Negro son, Lars van de Honderheide. However, after receiving a score of 75.196 percent, the pair had to make do with second place.
The Danish rider, the team World Champion, Daniel Bachmann Andersen, was delighted to come third. And especially because he competed with a horse he has only been riding for a few months: the gigantic 12-year-old Westphalian-bred, Vayron by Vitalis, who he took over from Helen Langehanenberg. The pair seem to make the perfect combination. Third place in their first performance at Aachen with a score of 75.131 percent speaks for itself.
