Christian Schranz takes second in CSI2* Coca Cola Silver Tour
Two starts, two wins! Lower Austrian Christian Schranz and his 13-year-old Swiss gelding Whisper von Lichten CH had further cause for celebration today. Following their first place finish in yesterday’s CSI2* Silver Tour opening, they found themselves at the top of the mountain again today, this time winning the Coca Cola prize!
This two-phase jumping examination over 1.30m obstacles was completed flawlessly by nine riders, but no-one was able to beat the 55.53 seconds set by Christian Schranz. Johanna Sixt (AUT/Burgenland) came second, just has she had the day before, completing the examination in 56.05 seconds in the saddle of 14-year-old Holstein mare Lillifee.
