Great Britain’s Matthew Sampson win prestigious Derby of Hamburg!



Great Britain’s Matthew Sampson in the saddle of a fabulous jumping Gloria vd Zuuthoeve (Thunder vd Zuuthoeve) made history by winning the prestigious Derby of Hamburg. In front of the sold out stands, Sampson jumped one of three clear rounds over the huge track to advance to the jump off where the pair achieved the only double clear round of the class to claim the win. Last year’s runner up, Gilbert Tillmann and Claus Dieter (Clarimo) took another 2nd place this year as they finished the jump off with just one fence down while three day eventing rider Sandra Auffarth and home bred Nupafeed La Vista (Lordanos) with two faults, finished 3rd.
