McLain Ward and Contagious Rise to Top of Turkish Airlines-Prize of Europe at CHIO Aachen


Aachen, Germany – McLain Ward (Brewster, N.Y.) and Contagious took their first win of the week at CHIO Aachen and one of the first individual victories at the iconic venue for Ward, besting a class of 56 entries for a competitive win. The duo stopped the timers as the third fastest combination in the first round and ultimately secured victory after finishing the second round in 41.41 seconds. Martin Fuchs (SUI) took third aboard Conner Jei, while Conor Swail (IRE) and Count Me In rounded out the top three.

Ward and his Tokyo Olympics partner, Contagious, a 2009 Deutches Sportpferd gelding owned by Beechwood Stables LLC, have been a force so far in 2022, capturing multiple international wins both in the U.S. and abroad as they aim for team selection ahead of the 2022 FEI Jumping World Championships in Herning, Denmark in August.
