For Grischa Ludwig, it was another great success in an already phantastic season which included the FEI European Reserve Championship (both individual and team) only one week before this show. “I got Doctors Diamond about a year ago,“ Grischa said. „They had just started him then, and he was really green. This was our very first show. He is still green, and we had quite some penalties in the go round, but we still got a 217, which shows the great potential of this horse.”
Dominik Reminder and his Paint mare La Marka de Gunner (Colonels Smokin Gun x Smokin Marquita) became Reserve Champion for owner Luga Quarter Horses scoring a 221. With this mare, past NRHA World Open Res. Champion Reminder was 6th at the NRHA Breeders Futurity SBH Open 2014.
Thus ended a spectacular AustrianRHA Futurity, which was commented by Futurity Champion Grischa Ludwig as follows: „Here in Wiener Neustadt, there is always a very high level of sport. In fact, the AustrianRHA Futurity is one of Europe’s top 3 events besides the Italian Futurity and the Breeders Futurity!“
