A duel between possibly two of the three fastest riders in the world decided the outcome of the CHF $30,900 Grosspeter Nutzfahrzeuge AG Prize yesterday during the Longines CSI Basel 5* in Switzerland.
In the end, the “Clash of Titans” could only one winning combination and Emanuele Gaudiano (ITA) blazed throught the course aboard his speedy 9-year-old dark bay Oldenburg mare Carlotta (Chaccomo x Cento) to win the 1.45m challenge backed by a penalty-free performance in 56.29 seconds.
Felix Haßmann (GER) & Cayenne WZ (Claudio x Ramirado) took silver honors with no penalties in 57.99 seconds while Robert Smith (GBR) & Cimano E (Claudio x Ramirado) completed the podium with a clear run in 58.58.seconds.
