Cross-Country Keeps Germany’s Jung atop Eventing World Championships

October 2, 2010 – Lexington, KY – As the day’s third-last starter, Germany’s Michael Jung and La Biosthetique-Sam FBW made the cross-country course look easy at the Eventing World Championships, presented by Reem Acra.  The pair added nothing to their dressage penalty score of 33.00, to keep the lead they took yesterday in the dressage phase at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

Creeping up behind Jung after equally impressive rounds are Great Britain’s William Fox-Pitt on Cool Mountain, finishing on their dressage score of 42.00, and USA’s Becky Holder on Courageous Comet, finishing on 42.50.

Of the 79 horses that started today’s course, 60 finished (75.9%).  Some 13 riders, including Jung and Fox-Pitt, finished faster than the ideal time of 11:14 and added nothing to their dressage penalties.

TEAM GOLD FOR BRITAIN AS JUNG TAKES INDIVIDUAL TITLE FOR GERMANY by Louise Parkes

Lexington, 3 October – In a nail-biting conclusion to the Eventing Championship at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky today, the British stood firm to claim team gold and Germany’s Michael Jung did likewise to take the individual title.  Jung’s win was delivered with consummate ease when, last into the arena, he produced another flawless performance from his 10 year old gelding La Biosthetique Sam.  And Britain’s William Fox-Pitt, whose polished ride with Cool Mountain secured individual silver, paid the highest compliment to the winner, who led the competition from the outset.  When asked what he thought of the German rider’s result, he said, “Quite honestly it’s a case of Michael Jung – 1, the rest – nowhere! He’s so far ahead we’ve all got our work cut out for us for the next two years!”

The British triumph was the first in a World Championship since 1994 and it was achieved in the best possible way, with clears from Fox-Pitt, Mary King (Imperial Cavalier) and Nicola Wilson (Opposition Buzz) while Tina Cook (Miners Frolic) had two fences down. There was turmoil on the leaderboard, with the USA slipping out of medal contention and having to settle for fourth place while the sensational Canadians moved up into silver and New Zealand took bronze.

The rider, Juan Carlos Garcia, was taken to the hospital and initial reports are that he is in good condition.

Germany Remains Dominant in Dressage at Eventing World Championships

October 1, 2010 – Lexington, KY – Germany’s Michael Jung and La Biosthetique-Sam FBW took the lead today in the Eventing World Championships, presented by Reem Acra, at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.  Jung’s score of 33.00 put him in the top spot, while countryman Simone Deitermann, riding Free Easy (36.00), held on to the third spot after leading following day 1.  Italy’s Stefano Brecciaroli, riding Apollo van de Wendi Kurt Hoeve, stands second with a 35.50.

Germany took the lead in the team race, with 114.30 penalty points. Great Britain is next (128.50) and Sweden is third (131.20), followed by Australia (131.80), Italy (135.90), New Zealand (138.30) and the United States (140.00).

Marilyn Payne, president of the ground jury, commented that today’s top rides were especially enjoyable to watch.  “It’s so exciting to give 8s and 9s,” she said.  “What else can I do?  This is the most exciting thing as a judge: to be able to judge horses and riders like this.”

Jung was the third-last rider to start today and performed a beautiful dressage test, despite the fact that his horse is “an absolute bundle of energy.”  “The last few years, he has just performed beautifully,” said Jung.  He also added that the duo competes in dressage competitions at home in Germany, which might have helped his score today.

GERMANS CEMENT THEIR POSITION AHEAD OF CROSS-COUNTRY DAY by Louise Parkes

Lexington, 1 October – The German team go into tomorrow’s Eventing Championship cross-country challenge at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games with a 14 point lead over their nearest rivals from Great Britain.  Sweden lies third ahead of Australia in fourth but less than 20 penalties separate the top four nations and just 40 penalties, or two jumping errors, separate the top ten teams.

On a day when the standard of dressage just kept getting better and better it was Germany’s Michael Jung who took over at the head of affairs.  He admitted during the post-competition press conference that he regularly competes in pure dressage, “but not at the World Equestrian Games!” he pointed out.  He described his 10 year old gelding La Biosthetique Sam as “a bundle of energy”, and he used that energy today to post a superb score of 33.0 to go out in front.

ROUSING CHEER
However he is closely followed by Italy’s Stefano Brecciaroli whose test with Apollo van de Wendi Kur Hoeve brought a rousing cheer from the crowd after they put 35.50 on the board.  The handsome Belgian Warmblood gelding, which the rider has been competing for the last two years, really rose to the occasion and the 36 year old rider from Rome, who is a member of the Italian police force, the Carabinieri, was delighted with his result. “I competed in Fontainebleau (FEI European Championships) last year and also in Aachen this summer with this horse,” he explained.

GERMANS TAKE STRONG LEAD ON FIRST DAY OF DRESSAGE by Louise Parkes

Lexington, 30 September – Germany holds the whip hand after the first day of dressage in the Eventing Championship at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky (USA) today.  Individual rider Simone Dietermann holds top spot after a superb test with Free Easy NRW while Ingrid Klimke lies second with FRH Butts Abraxxas and fellow team-member Dirk Schrade is fourth with Gadget de la Cere. Great Britain’s William Fox-Pitt and his 2010 Rolex Kentucky 4-Star winner Cool Mountain were the only ones to break the German stranglehold when slotting into third, and his result, combined with that of Nicola Wilson (Opposition Buzz) has ensured fourth place for the British in the team rankings going into tomorrow’s closing stage of the dressage phase.

Sweden lies third after Linda Algotsson and the amazing 20 year old Stand by Me slotted into eighth place and Niklas Jonsson (First Lady) finished tenth.  But it is the Australians who are the closest challengers to the leading nation after the opening day.  When Paul Tapner’s fifth place score with his 2010 Badminton winner Inonothing was added to that of Stuart Tinney and Vettori, the total of 91.00 points left the Aussies in second spot, just 7.2 points behind the leaders.
