Lisa Wilcox has done it! She silenced every single detractor by winning the Grand Prix at the CDI Lingen with an impressive 72.541%. Dealing with stress, pressure and nasty gossip in Europe and American for months because she did not show Relevant, Wilcox carried a huge burden going into the CDI Lingen, her first show of the 2004 outdoor season aboard her WEG team silver medal winning Relevant.
Her winning 72.54% score was a good indicator that Wilcox can be an anchor on the American Olympic Team. In Lingen, American Olympic team rider Guenter Seidel placed second with 71.375%. Seidel saddled his Bavarian gelding Aragon (by Abydos). Danish national dressage champion Per Sandgaard lived up to his role as best Dressage Dane by finishing third on Zancor with 70.916%
