“German Jumping and Dressage Derby” in Hamburg
Jaeger-LeCoultre has became Partner of the Global Champions Tour, the most recognized series in horse jumping worldwide. The traditional event “Deutsches Derby” was held in Hamburg on Saturday May 15 2010. With more than 10.000 spectators in the stands, the atmosphere was intense and exhilarating for this first class horse jumping event with two rounds and a final jump-off. At the end of a tight competition - four riders advanced with zero points in both rounds to the jump-off - three ladies triumphed. US-American Lauren Hough on Quick Study won with another round of zero points as Edwina Alexander (Australia) came in second followed by Laura Kraut (USA) and Marco Kutscher (Germany). In the GCT ranking the world’s actual number one rider Marcus Ehning (Germany), who came in eighth on Noltes Küchengirl, is in the lead followed by Marco Kutscher and Laura Kraut. Winner Lauren Hough was rewarded with 95,000 EUR and also received a Reverso Grand Taille which was handed over by Jérôme Lambert, Chief Executive of Jaeger-LeCoultre.
