ermany’s very own Philipp Weishaupt snatched the victory from Wednesday’s Europa Preis winner Kent Farrington in the 1.50 Stawag-Preis in Aachen. The 29-year-old from Riesenbeck, who rides for living legend Ludger Beerbaum, took 63.31 seconds to complete the 470-metre course and relegated Wednesday’s winner Kent Farrington into second place with his mare, Blue Angel with their time of 63.53 seconds. It was already the second top placing for the rider from the USA in Aachen this week. Wednesday, Farrington won the Turkish Airlines-Prize of Europe with the KWPN-bred gelding, Voyeur. Third place went to the Belgian rider Pieter Devos with Echo D in a time of 64.10 seconds. “I actually thought that there was no beating Kent Farrington’s time,” stated Weishaupt. But he found the right motto: “he who dares, wins.” Incidentally, the rider from Augsburg has only been riding the horse for a week. The Calando-son was ridden by Jörg Naeve previously. “Colado is a fighter and Jörg has trained him excellently,” praised Weishaupt.
