The qualification for the DKB-Riders Tour in Wiesbaden became extremely exciting since the performances became faster and faster. Twelve pairs had made it to the jump-offs and in the end Felix Haßmann made the it to the top like he often does. The Westphalian always goes for the victory and Quali Quanti was the perfect partner. The Wurttemberger, so Haßmann said had never been that fast. Two years ago he already was placed fourth in the Grand Prix at Wiesbaden, but now he made it to the top. Haßmann profited by Hansi Dreher’s bad luck, who had the last fence down. Dreher and Embassy would have been more than a second faster than Haßmann with Quali Quanti.
Second place went to Guido Klatte Jun, who currently has a lucky streak. He was more than content with his 8-year-old Oldenburger gelding Corisanto. “I was speechless when he jumped so well in the first round. But we still have to work on the steering.” Third place went to Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum with Westphalian stallion Samurai by Stalypso.
