Solid Gold Z wins in Aachen!!

Christian Ahlmann and Solid Gold Z (Stakkato Gold x Calvin Z – B: Gestüt Sprehe GmbH) have already delivered a lot of great performances and places of honor in the Longines Global Champions Tour in recent weeks, but somehow a resounding victory had not yet been achieved… But that changed yesterday afternoon! On the magnificent grass arena of Aachen, Christian Ahlmann and Solid Gold Z impressively jumped to victory in the Allianz Prize!

The course designer, Frank Rothenberger, had built a challenging course in the 1.55-metre-high Allianz Prize this afternoon. But the result did him justice. Either the ten best pairs or all clear rounds qualified for the second round. And precisely ten pairs jumped clear. Christian Ahlmann and Solid Gold Z were one of them and entered the ring again in the second and decisive round as seventh combination. The duo immediately got off to a good start and with a convincing finish time of 53.55 seconds they were more than a full second ahead of the competition.

Christian Ahlmann: “Of course, one is always happy when one wins. But I am particularly delighted today, because I haven’t been placed here yet. My horses jumped well, but somehow it didn’t quite work out yet. I hope that is a good omen for the grand prix tomorrow with Dominator 2000 Z!”
