The high-calibre CSI5* riders joined the action for the first time today here at the Vienna Masters. This unconstrained two-phase jumping examination with 1.45m obstacles, presented by Icuras, resulted in 16 of 49 starting duos achieving an error-free round.
The winner came from Saudi Arabia. Leading Al Capone, the 14-year-old son of Alcatraz, masterfully around the course, Ramzy Hamad Al Duhami set himself clearly apart from the competition with a time of 28.81 seconds. Almost three seconds slower was Amre Hamcho (SYR), who took second place with 0/31.31 in the saddle of Westfalen gelding Al Murtajiz. In third was Austria’s best in the CSI5* Icuras Opening: Max Kühner (Tirol) with the outstanding gelding Cornet Kalua – raised in the same stable as Corner Obolensky – who crossed the finish line in a flawless 31.85 seconds.
