Stephex Stables’ very own Daniel Deusser and Calisto Blue (Chacco-Blue x Con Air) brought the victory home to Knokke Hippique-host and Event President Stephan Conter in Friday evening’s CSI5* 1.50m Invest Mobile Prize. 

Ten of the 47 horse-and-rider combinations in this Grand Prix qualifier managed to clear Uliano Vezzani’s demanding first-round track. However, only seven opted to ride the jump-off. For the jump-off, Vezzani had made use of the entire Zoute Plage – opening for lots of galloping but also some short turns.

As third last to go, Deusser pulled off the fastest round of the competition – the German rider stopped the clock at 44.50 seconds pushing Italy’s Roberto Turchetto on Baron (Colman x Numero Uno) down to second place and Belgium’s own Gudrun Patteet on Sea Coast Valdelamadre Clooney (Centeuer Z x Quantum) down to third. None of those to come could catch the top three, Turkey’s Efe Siyahi finished fourth and Ireland’s Cian O’Connor fifth.

As Calisto Blue is my horse for tonight and for tomorrow, and I will ride Scuderia 1918 Tobago Z on Sunday, it was my plan to try and get a good result,” Deusser said after his win. “When I first saw the jump-off, I thought it was not really his kind of jump-off, but actually he stayed very calm in the long forward distances and jumped really good. Calisto Blue just has so much quality, and I know him for a year already. He has been very consistent in the past few months and I hope we can keep this form up.”
