Sönke Rothenberger & Cosmo Recover to Beat Isabell Werth & Weihegold in Donaueshingen CDI4* Grand Prix Special

DONAUESCHINGEN, Germany, Aug. 19, 2018–Sönke Rothenberger and Cosmo recovered from a shaky Grand Prix to post a personal best score for a smashing victory over Isabell Werth and Weihegold OLD in the CDI4* Grand Prix Special Sunday and pretty much assured the pair a start at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon next month.

Sönke and the 11-year-old KWPN gelding were awarded 84.632 per cent to become the clear winner over the world’s No. 1 combination and Olympic and European Championship team mates.

Isabell and Weihegold were awarded 81.745 per cent with Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and Zaire-E third on 77.383 per cent after the second place finish in Saturday’s Grand Prix.

“He was completely with me,” said a relieved Sönke, “that was a very good feeling.”

Isabell said that Weihegold “ran out of gas” in the Special after the winning the Grand Prix a day earlier that was the first competition for the the duo since repeating as World Cup champion in April.

The German dressage committee will decide in the next eight days on the team for Tryon, after Helen Langehanenberg rides Damsey in Münster next weekend.

The performances this weekend for Sönke and Cosmo were vital for selection to the German team for WEG in North Carolina next month. A minor injury to Cosmo had kept the 23-year-old rider and the horse he has competed since Young Riders from the Nations Cup at Aachen, Germany last month.

In the Grand Prix Saturday, the first competition since becoming German champions in June, Sönke and Cosmo scored 76.196 per cent for third place behind Isabell and Weihegold and Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on Zaire-E.

The ride by Isabell and Weihegold was awarded the highest Grand Prix score of any of her Big tour horses–Bella Rose, Emilio and Don Johnson as well as Weihegold–in the past year.

Sunday’s results put the top prospects for the German team as Isabell on one of her three mounts; Helen Langehanenberg on Damsey FRH, Dorothee Schneider on Sammy Davis Jr. and Sönke and Cosmo. Helen wanted the extra competition, a national show, for more preparation after a baby break and their successful return at Aachen last month.

The Tryon World Games team competition will be decided by the Grand Prix over two days, Sept. 12 and 13. Individual medals will be awarded for the Grand Prix Special on Sept. 14 and for the Freestyle Sept. 16.

Isabell Werth and Descolari. © 2018 Karl-Heinz Frieler

DONAUESCHINGEN, Germany, Aug. 18, 2018–Isabell Werth qualified Descolari for the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal, the German small tour championships, by winning the St. Georges Special Saturday and a start at the final in Frankfurt in mid-December.

Isabell and the eight-year-old Hanoverian stallion sired by Desperados scored 74.488 per cent for the win in the competition for seven to nine-year-old horses and the 10th of 12 qualifiers.

Isabell has won the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal four times since it was first staged in 1992–in 1995, 1996, 2008 and 2017. Coincidentally, she won the CDI4* Grand Prix on Weihegold OLD Saturday, the horse that Beatrice Buchwald rode to the Burg-Pokal title in 2013. Beatrice worked for Isabell at the time.

Only the winner of each of the qualifying competitions earns a start at the final in Frankfurt, scheduled for Dec. 13-16.

Isabell Werth & Weihegold Dominate Donaueshingen CDI4* Grand Prix, Sönke Rothenberger & Cosmo Disappoint With 3rd Place

Isabell Werth. the world’s No. 1 rider on Weihegold OLD. © Ken Braddick/dressage-news.com

DONAUESCHINGEN, Germany, Aug. 18, 2018–Isabell Werth rode Weihegold OLD to the highest Grand Prix score of any of the Olympic superstar’s Big tour horses in a year to totally dominate the CDI4* Saturday while the performance by team mate Sönke Rothenberger and Cosmo left in doubt their selection for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon less than four weeks away.

Isabell and the world No. 1 Weihegold, 13-year-old Oldenburg mare, scored 82.652 per cent including four marks of 10 to win what is the last WEG selection event for Germany.

In a much-anticipated ride, Sönke and the 11-year-old KWPN gelding were awarded 76.196 per cent for third place in the horse’s return from an injury that kept the pair out of the show arena for two months. Difficulties in half-passes and the reinback dampened their results.

Fellow German Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on Zaire-E placed second on 76.413 per cent.

The dramatic turn of events presented the German team selectors with two major issues with the European dressage horses scheduled to fly in two weeks time to Tryon for the start on Sept. 12 of two days of Grand Prix to decide the world championship team medals:

–Which of Isabell’s three prospective mounts to name to the team–Weihegold with a record of 2016 Olympic team gold and individual silver, 2017 European Championships team, individual and freestyle gold and double World Cup champion; Emilio or Bella Rose that is Isabell’s personal favorite that came back to competition in July after an injury-caused absence of almost four years following team gold at the 2014 World Games.

–Whether to include Sönke and Cosmo, team mate with Isabell at the 2016 Rio Games, second to Isabell in all three Grand Prix classes at the 2017 Europeans and German champion, a national show, two months ago.

The top three prospects for the German team–widely considered to be facing a serious challenge from the United States at home–are Isabell on one of her three mounts; Helen Langehanenberg on Damsey FRH and Dorothee Schneider on Sammy Davis Jr. Sönke and Cosmo hoped to fill the fourth spot, as does Jessica von Bredow-Werndl with one of her three Grand Prix horses–Zaire-E, TSF Dalera BB or Unee BB

The four marks of 10 for Isabell, 49 years old, and Weihegold were for piaffe and passage including two for passage-piaffe-passage transitions on the final centerline.

The previous highest Grand Prix score for Isabell on either Bella Rose, Don Johnson FRH, Emilio or Weihegold–was 83.743 per cent on Weihegold at the 2017 European Championships.

There, the pair won the Freestyle with their first ever score above 90 per cent, that was also achieved by Sönke and Cosmo, to become only the fourth and fifth riders in the world to attain that mark for a musical performance.

Sönke Rothenberger, 23 years old, and Cosmo were ranked as high as No. 2 in the world but a scant competition record in the past year have dropped the pair to 97th. This was their first competition since the German Championships in June and the first CDI since April, the only international event for the pair since the Europeans in August, 2017.

At the 2016 Olympics, Isabell added to her Olympic medal count with team gold and individual silver for a career total of 10 so far, more than any equestrian in more than a century of horse sports at the Games.

Cathrine Dufour and Cassidy will not compete for Denmark at the World Equestrian Games next month after the 15-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding sustained a minor injury that the rider said will not heal in time for Tryon.

Cathrine, 26, and Cassidy are ranked No. 4 in the world and were tipped as possibly helping Denmark to a team medal and a contender for an individual medal at the World Games where dressage is scheduled to start Sept. 12.

“Cassidy has made a minor injury in the field,” Cathrine reported on her Facebook page, “which means that we currently can’t work him.

“It’s of course very disappointing as he’s been better than ever during this season. We will do everything we can to take care of Cassidy in the best way possible, and therefor we won’t push him to do anything he’s not ready to.

“I’m sad that we won’t be a part of the Danish team, but we wish our team mates and colleagues all the best for WEG 2018.

“We will be back!”

The team for Tryon, North Carolina now is:

Daniel Bachmann Andersen, 28, and Blue Hors Zack, 14-year-old KWPN stallion;
Anders Dahl, 42, and Selten HW, 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding;
Betina Jæger, 44, and Mane Stream Belstaff, 11-year-old Hanoverian stallion, and
Anna Zibrandtsen, 24, and Arlando, 13-year-old KWPN stallion.

Cathrine and Cassidy, that competed at the 2016 Olympcs, became a star of the 2017 European Championships and the only Danish combination to make it to the dressage-news.com “80% Club” for achieving that score in a Grand Prix.

The pair was dressage champion with the highest combined percentage from the CDIO5* Grand Prix, Special and Freestyle at the highly competitive Aachen, Germany competition last month. The duo beat Isabell Werth and Emilio in both the World Cup Grand Prix and Freestyle in Gothenburg, Sweden last winter.

Since the World Games was created in 1990 as a combined world championships of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, jumping, reining, vaulting and para equestrian staged once every four years, Denmark has won only a single medal–individual bronze by Andreas Helgstrand on Blue Hors Matine at Aachen, Germany in 2006.
