Eighth win for World Champion Boyd Exell

Stuttgart – The winner of the STUTTGART GERMAN MASTERS goes by the name of Boyd Exell for the eighth time. On Saturday afternoon, the Australian won the DB SCHENKER GERMAN MASTER, a FEI Driving World CupTM leg, in front of a thrilled 7,300 crowd in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle. The reigning world champion, who had previously won the preliminary class on Friday evening, dominated the World Cup leg and gave his rivals no chance when posting an overall time of 147.77 seconds. In second place was the Swiss Jérome Voutaz (161.76) ahead of the Belgian Glenn Geerts (163.08) in third. Local hero Michael Brauchle missed out on the drive-off after coming fourth ahead of Chester Weber (USA) and the Frenchman Benjamin Aillaud.


Asked by a journalist about the recipe for his success, the wryly smiling winner replied: “You never give away Grandma’s best recipe.” Continuing the Australian said, “Horsepower was decisive today.” Jérome Voutaz added: “It’s unbelievable driving here in such an atmosphere. You get the feeling that the Stuttgart crowd just loves our sport.” For Glenn Geerts, Boyd Exell is “unbeatable at the moment”. The runner-up was happy with his performance saying, “I was so happy to be in the drive-off.” Michael Brauchle called Exell a perfectionist and a “meticulous worker”. He then raved: “I know of no other indoor arena where the drivers are cheered on so loudly and so much.” The new course builder, Jerome Houterman from the Netherlands explained that he wanted his course to make “fast speeds” possible – something he certainly managed to do. 

After the three legs in Lyon, Maastricht und Stuttgart, Boyd Exell also now heads the FEI World Cup standings on 20 points ahead of Ijsbrand Chardon (NED/17), Koos de Ronde (NED/12) and Jérome Voutaz (SUI/10). Other horse shows on the road to the World Cup final in Bordeaux (FRA) in February are Stockholm (SWE/24 - 27 November), Geneva (SUI/8 - 12 December), London (GBR/14 -19 December), Mechelen (BEL/26 - 30 December) and Leipzig (19 - 22 January 2023).
