A new star is born! 15-year-old Sheer Levitin wins the Gold Tour presented by HEUTE. On Friday, just-turned 15-year-old American Sheer Levitin took the first lap of honour of Vienna’s time-honoured Krieau trotting course in the centre of the 44 by 88m arena. Riding the 12-year-old son of Chin Chin, the pupil of David Will (GER) was able to record the fastest error-free ride in the CSI2* Gold Tour presented by HEUTE (0/58.59).
Wesley Newland (CAN) on Wieminka B (0/62.07) and Kerry McCahill (USA) on Windbreaker (0/62.07) claimed spots two and three in this 1.40m jumping competition with 5000 Euros worth of prize money up for grabs. 14 of a total of 44 pairs stayed error-free, with 17-year-old Zayd Kuzbari of Lower Austria finishing as the highest-placed Austrian in place four with Lionell. Also representing their native Austria, Christian Juza of Salzburg, Christoph Obernauer of Tyrol and Fritz Kogelnig and Theresa Pachler of Lower Austria finished in ranked positions six, seven, eight and twelve.
Small winner with a big name – Harry Allen wins his first 2* jumping competition
At fifteen years of age and having already competed in two children and ponies European championships, Harry Allen is definitely well on his way to catching up with his older brother Bertram in equestrian competition. The young Irishman is not only the spitting image of his 21-year-old brother, but also shares the same talent. In today’s packed field of 35 competitiors in the Silver Tour (1.30m) presented by Lenz Moser, and within the framework of the s.Oliver Vienna Masters | Longines Global Champions Tour of Vienna, Harry was able to come away victorious.
The fact that he was able to steer his nine-year-old BWP stallion High Valley to victory in 54.11 seconds is all the more impressive given that this was the first time he had ever taken part in a two-star competition. Tess Carmichael of Great Britain came second with Unique III, son of Libero H (0/59.59), with Abbie Summers, also of Great Britain, coming third in the saddle of Quantas with a time of 56.72 seconds.
Austria was represented in the rankings with Rainer Zöger (Styria) on Igor van Bijsterveld (4th), Josefina Goess-Saurau (Burgenland) on Liliput (5th), Romana Hartl (Upper Austria) on Clever Be B (8th), Rainer Zöger again on Dubai de Reve (9th), Charlotte Dobretsberger (Lower Austria) on Larifari 2 (10th) and Matthias Raisch (Upper Austria) on Upgrade (12th).
Brigitte Prömer strikes again in Bronze Tour
When the Austrian anthem sounds out at the award ceremony of the CSI2* Bronze Tour in the main arena at the Vienna Masters, one lady is certain to be found close by. Brigitte
Prömer (AUT/Tyrol) and her 13-year-old Oldenburg mare Chanel grabbed victory number two of the weekend in the 1.15/1.20m high two-phase-jump, following on from their initial success yesterday.
With a time of 25.50 seconds, she consigned the young Styrian Sarah-Denise Fink on Coriana to second place (0/25.51), clinching victory by a mere hundredth of a second. Spot three went to Joao Roberto Marinho (BRA) in the saddle of Toscane Briovere, who galloped over the finish line in 26.98 seconds.
