The young Grand Prix horses Fabregaz and Heuberger TSF have become the recipients of the 2016 Otto Lorke Prize at the CDI-W Stuttgart on 19 November 2016.
The Otto Lorke prize is bestowed annually upon the most successful upcoming Grand Prix horses in Germany. Originally only one horse received the title each year but the past four years numerous horses have received the honour. The Otto Lorke prize is determined by a committee with members of the Liselott Linsenhoff foundation and the DOKR.
The rider, trainer and owner of the Otto Lorke prize winning horse gets honoured in Stuttgart.
The 9-year old German Sport Horse gelding Fabregaz (by Florestano x Ragazzo) is competed by Fabienne Lutkemeier, and trained and owned by Gina Capellmann-Lutkemeier. The dark bay gelding did four international shows this year and scored 74.098% in the Grand Prix Special at the CDI Donaueschingen. In Stuttgart he scored 74.02% in the Special. Fabregaz is bred by Mariele and Karl Hofbauer.
The 9-year old Trakehner stallion Heuberger (by Imperio x Michelangelo) is bred and owned by Gestut Webelsgrund, competed by Anabel Balkenhol and trained by Klaus Balkenhol.
