GCL Chantilly :: Berlin Eagles’ Fly to Pole Position in the Capital of the Horse
Berlin Eagles’ duo, Ludger Beerbaum and Christian Kukuk flew to pole position at GCL Chantilly as the fastest team on a flawless score in the French ‘Capital of the Horse’.
The Eagles swooped to the top spot ahead of Miami Celtics’ pairing, Michael Duffy and William Whitaker. The Celtics team were hoping to keep their dream of taking the Championship lead alive. Valkenswaard United were the fastest of the 4 faulters, after Marcus Ehning and Bertram Allen pulled off a blisteringly fast round with top horses Comme Il Faut and Molly Malone V.
Speaking after their results today Christian Kukuk said:
We had a very good day today, we can be really happy, Ludger and I. Our horses felt great, but we saw last year that we could be in the lead on day one but not on the second, so it’s for sure not over but we have a good feeling.”
Ludger Beerbaum agreed:
I like the big grass arena and Chantilly is one of my favourite shows. But that doesn’t mean it will help us win! Until now in the season we’ve had several good days but we’ve not had two great days, so I hope tomorrow evening we will be celebrating.”
Uliano Vezzani set a big open course, with inviting long distances and with a few delicate verticals towards the end – meaning absolute control was order of the day. As the sun beamed down, the picturesque Chateau de Chantilly played host to the 12th round of action in the GCL race for supremacy.
Competition continues in the second round which will take place at 15:45 local time, tune in via GC TV to watch the action live to see who will be crowned Kings or Queens of GCL Chantilly.
