Tripple X III tops 1.50m class Stuttgart

Ben Maher has won the Saturday main class at the Stuttgart World Cup show in Germany. He did it with his own stallion Tripple X III finishing approximately a second ahead of Carsten-Otto Nagel (Corradina) and Pieter Devos (Dream of India). Ben Maher took also the  eight-year-old AES born mare Diva II (Kannan) to Stuttgart for the other classes. The chestnut mare jumped clear at 1.45m on Thursday and Friday, and ended up ninth and tenth. Diva was bred by Mr. Edgar from Warwick. Tripple X also jumped clear on Thursday, finishing up in seventh spot. The World Cup was won by home rider Hans-Dieter Dreher (Embassy II). The British Ben Maher and Scott Brash made each one mistake in it.
