Aachen, Germany - Strong performances continue from the U.S. competitors at the 2013 CHIO Aachen. Caroline Roffman made quite a statement in Aachen's Deutsche Bank Stadium with Sagacious HF in the CDI-U25 Grand Prix. With the Hyperion Farm, Inc.'s 14-year-old Royal Dutch Warmblood gelding, Roffman (Wellington, FL) rode a lovely, flowing test with quality piaffe and passage movements. The pair earned a score of 68.953% as the first combination to come down centerline in the Preis der Liselott und Klaus Rheinberger Stiftung class to finish in second place.

In the CDI4*Big Tour competition, Susan Dutta and Currency DC performed the Grand Prix Special in the Lindt-Preis class. She and Tim Dutta Inc.'s 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding transitioned well between the challenging sequences of movements in the test earning a 67.042% to finish in sixth place.

Roffman withdrew her own Her Highness O from Aachen CDI4* Intermediaire I competition for veterinary reasons. Roffman, Team Veterinarian Dr. Rick Mitchell, and Chef d'Equipe Robert Dover had the welfare of the horse as top priority.
