LGCT Hamburg

Posted on May 27, 2021

It was fantastic to be at one of our favourite shows on the calendar – the Longines Global Champions Tour leg in Hamburg, Germany!

Off to a strong start, our favourite stallion Golden Hawk flew around the 4* Derby Qualifier for a quick and faultless round to take home 9th place in the highly decorated class. Cato Boy clearly taking notes from his stablemate also claimed 9th in the CSIYH1* 8-year-old class, displaying his talent and impressing the crowds. However, stealing the show on the first day was the 9-year-old stallion Z7 Regal Don who rose to the challenge in the 5* Ranking Class, speeding to 2nd place and only missing taking 1st place by only 0.01 seconds!

Vistogrand made his GCL debut in the historic Hamburg grass ring, jumping a classy clear round for the Rome Gladiators. The big dark bay stallion looked right at home in the massive arena, and you would not have known he made his 5* debut earlier this year – he is one to watch!

Can Ya Makan was also right at home in front of the German crowds, flying to 3rd place and making it look all so easy in the second Derby qualifier. He then stepped up to the plate in very wet conditions on the Sunday to spin around the iconic course to take home 12th place.

A huge thank you to our sponsors, team and owners who make it all possible. Next stop – LGCT Cannes!
