Birthday Win for Felix Vogg at Luhmühlen, Top-Five Finishes for Two U.S. Riders

Vogg Jürgen's 14-year-old Westphalian gelding Colero (Captain Fire x Bonita) Colero gave his rider Felix Vogg a tremendous birthday present - the first five-star victory of Vogg's career! Just like the cross-country course, the show jumping of the Longines CCI5*-L proved to be very influential. Only three riders stayed clear and within the time allowed. With a very fresh and smooth round, Vogg and Colero held onto their dressage score of 29.0 points. Kirsty Chabert of Great Britain brought home second place honors aboard John Johnston and Carole Somers' 13-year-old Anglo-European mare Classic VI (Calvaro F.C. x India Summer) and New Zealand's Jonelle Price completed the podium third with the 17-year-old British Sport Horse mare Faerie Dianimo (Dimaggio x Faerie Dazzler VII) owned by Trisha Rickards, Jacky Green, and Price.

Upton Leads Luhmulen CCI5* After Dressage, U.S. Rider Nicholson in Second

A brilliant dressage test put British rider Bubby Upton with Rachel Uptont’s 15-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding Cannavaro (Oklund x Domina) in the lead in the five-star at Luhmulen on a score of 24.9. The value of Bubby Upton's dressage score became apparent at the end of the second dressage day. None of the other competitors were able to overtrump yesterday's performance. U.S. rider Lauren Nicholson is currently paving the way for the rest of the U.S. field sitting in second on a score of 26.7 with Jacqueline Mars’s 15-year-old Anglo Arabian gelding Vermiculus (Sazeram x Wake Me Gently) while New Zealand’s Tim Price rounds out the leaderboard in third aboard the 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding Vitali (Contender x Noble Lady I) who he co-owns with Alexander and Joseph Giannamore.
