The 2013 show season from Nu Chexomatic started with a win at the Italian Derby with Owner Tina Künstner-Mantl showing. Then it was off to the 23 Classic when Tina was slated to show Duke in the FEI class but when Tina was unable to make it to the completion, NRHA professional Cody Sapergia was more then happy to take the reins and entered the $ 30.000 added NRHA Open when the dust settled and the last score was announced. The Bronze Trophy was awarded to Cody and Duke. However a world title was not even a consideration at this time. The duo was able to repeat this result at the CS Classic in Switzerland, home of Corinna and Michael Schumacher, with a fantastic score of 228!
Then with some advice from three time World Champion and friend Bernard Fonck, a plan was made to work towards the achievable NRHA world title. There was some hard competition through the season, namely with german trainer Dominik Reminder and Cira Baeck of Belgium. But after flying to the USA to compete in the $ 25.000,- added World Championship Shootout, Cody and Duke posted a 224,5 to finish in the 4th position and to bring the total earnings for 2013 to more than astonishing $ 755.000. Doing so, they send Cira on number two and secure the championship! Achieving $ 1.163.246,00 in total, Cody Sapergia is counting down to the 1 million rider mark.
