The phenomenal pair presented a Grand Prix of great quality on Friday for 76.761%, beating their 74.46% achieved at Hagen and placing them at the top of the leaderboard by an almost four percent margin.

Opting to compete in Saturday’s Freestyle, they made their music debut riding to a compilation of Tina Turner hits, a programme used by owner Anne Van Olst when she was competing Exquis Clearwater. The iconic, timeless music matched the powerful Glamourdale well and his focus never wavered from the first to the last centre line. The performance was rewarded with a score of 83.235% to give them a clear victory.

The 10-year-old Lord Leatherdale x Negro breeding stallion (pictured in Hagen), who famously was FEI World Young Horse Seven-Year-Old Champion in 2018, is fulfilling the potential he has always shown in becoming a Grand Prix horse of the highest calibre.
