Marcel Marschall (GER) and Fenia van Klapscheut (Cicero Z x Ahorn Z) delivered the first German victory at the 2016-edition of the Brussels Stephex Masters when winning Friday’s CSI5* Clean Box Prize worth 25 000 Euro. The 1.45m competition against the clock had 39 riders in it, and fifteen of them produced clear rounds.
Stephex Stables’ Daniel Deusser and Happiness van’t Paradijs (Obourg x Quick Lauro Z) were the leaders throughout most of the class, but was overtaken towards the end. First by Constant van Paesschen (BEL) on Carlow van de Helle (Casall x Lord), who brought the time down to 59.75 seconds and quickly thereafter by Marschall whose time was as good as 58.79.
Fourth place went to Pieter Devos (BEL), and fifth to Cassio Rivetti (UKR).
Earlier in the day Emanuele Gaudiano (ITA) and Carlotta 232 were the quickest in Friday’s CSIYH Future Stars Godiva Prize.
This was the second competition for the 7- and 8-year old horses at the Brussels Stephex Masters, and it went against the clock over a height of 1.35-1.40m.
Gaudiano is well known for his speed in the ring, and today was no different as he raced around to the fastest time of the class aboard the 7-year-old mare by Chaccomo x Cento. Patrick Mc Entee (AZE) and the 8-year-old mare April Mury Marais Z (Air Jordan Z x Quinar Z) finished as runners-up, almost five seconds behind Gaudiano’s incredible time.
Three more 8-year-olds followed: Third place went to yesterday’s Future Stars winners Jérôme Guery (BEL) and Instit de Jucaso (Cooper van de Heffinck x Darco x Marc Quertenmont), while Kevin Staut (FRA) and Unna de Kerglenn (Cap Kennedy*Bois Margot x Diamant de Semilly) were fourth and Markus Beerbaum fifth with Contina R (Contendro I x Coleur Rubin).
