The 4-year old My Precious, the 5-year old Las Vegas and the 6-year old Kadiene became Win 2021 Pavo Cup Finals which came to a conclusion on Sunday 15 August 2021.
This trio of horses already won the semi-finals and dominated the first phase of the final round. After the guest judge rider assessed their quality and potential under saddle, they were proclaimed the winners of the 2021 Pavo Cup Finals.
The Pavo Cup Finals are the annual Dutch Young Horse Championships, exclusively for KWPN bred horses.
4-YO: My Precious
Kirsten Brouwer and the liver chestnut My Precious (by Ferguson x Vivaldi), who is bred by Indonesian businessman Titan Wilaras, won the title in the 4-year old division. Already topping the board in the semi-finals with 90.2 points, the mare kept her lead by a fraction of a point. She scored 90 points in the first round of the finals, and got 9.5 for rideability from guest judge rider Philipp Hess.
"The highlight of this mare is the walk, which is ground covering, clear and well through the body. She got a 9.6 for that," said judge Mariette Sanders, who assessed the horses together with Christoph Hess and Bart Bax.
The Hanoverian sire Ferguson (by Floriscout x Lauries Crusador xx) has more than made his mark at this year's Pavo Cup finals. Of the nine medallists in this year's Finals, no less than four (!!) were by Ferguson, a stallion who receives little publicity or attention in The Netherlands. He only once competed internationally at small tour level, in 2018 at the CDI Le Mans, under Spaniard Antonio Laiz Zandio. Also interesting to note is that the Hanoverian stallion Toto Jr (by Totilas x Desperados) had six offspring out of 20 in the 4-year old final.
The runner-up in the 4-year old division was the German bred and KWPN licensed McLaren (by Morricone x Sir Donnerhall). Bred by U. Toenjes in Germany, the stallion was second after the first round in the finals with 88.8 points, and got a 10 for rideability from Hess, but ended up second overall.
The second placed pair of the semi-finals, Lisanne der Nederlanden and the mare Mayflower (by Habanna x Alexandro P), landed third place in the Finals. They scored 87.6 points in the first round and got 9.0 from Hess for rideability.
5-YO: Las Vegas
Franka Loos and the KWPN licensed stallion Las Vegas (by Ferdeaux x Wynton) fulfilled all expectations and won the 5-year old Finals. He was the overnight leader after scoring 90.8 points in the semi-finals, and got amply rewarded by the judges in the first round of the finals. Judge Mariette Sanders rewarded the bay stallion with a 10 for trot and canter and also test rider Philipp Hess honoured the stallion with a 10 for rideability.
"It was a super feeling to ride this stallion. You can ride him forward, you can collect him. He's super on the aids and really great to sit on," said Hess.
Kirsten Brouwer and Lightning Star RR (by Ferguson x De Niro) were the runners-up. Bred by Titan Wilaras, the mare was already second in the semi-finals with 86 points and kept a firm hold on that position. She also received a 10 from Hess.
The third place 5-year old was gelding Lord Platinum (by Ferguson x Bretton Woods), also bred by Wilaras. Under Spaniard Curo Benitez Sanchez, the horse was third in the semi-finals, scored 88.2 points in the first round of the finals and got 9.5 from Hess.
Svenja Grimm and Kadiene (by Zhivago x Belissimo M) scored 88.6 points in the semi-finals, pulled that up to 90 points in the first round of the final and guest judge rider Philip Hess put the icing on the cake by rewarding the mare with a 10 for rideability. Kadiene is bred by De Radstake.
"It's a great horse and she gives me a fantastic feeling," said Hess. "She is easy to work with and the flying changes are really nicely off the ground."
The KWPN stallion Kyton (by Ferguson x Ferro), bred by W. Goesten, became the reserve champion. He was fourth in the semi-finals with 86 points, but moved to second place in the first round of the finals. Hess rewarded the stallion with a 10 for rideability.
Marieke van der Putten and Saskia Lemmens' Kuvasz (by Glamourdale x De Niro), bred by De Havikerwaard, landed third place after placing fifth in the semi-finals with 85 points.
The second placed pair in the semi-finals, Emmelie Scholtens and the licensed stallion Koning (by Governor x Bretton Woods), withdrew from competing in the finals.
