Switzerland's Alain Jufer won Sunday's CSI3*-W Grand Prix in Tetouan at the Morocco Royal Tour.
Aboard the 13-year-old stallion Wiveau M (Niveau x Concorde), the Swiss rider was by far the fastest in the jump-off that counted a total of ninteen combinations that had jumped clear over the first round 1.40-1.60m track. Stopping the clock at 45.73 seconds, Jufer was 1.56 quicker than runner-up Sander Geerink from Netherlands riding Robinson (Rubert R x Odermus R).
Another Swiss rider took care of third place: Nadja Peter Steiner on Capuera II (Come On x Baloubet du Rouet).
Fourth went to Qatar's Sheikh Ali Al Thani, while fifth was Syria's Amre Hamcho.
In Sunday’s CSI3* Grand Prix at the Champions Tour in Vilamoura, Portugal, Jesus Torres made it a win.
The Spanish rider produced one of nine clears in this 1.50m competition that counted a total of 45 riders, moving on to the jump-off. Against the clock, three out of these nine riders again produced clear rounds with Torres being the fastest of them stopping the clock at 39.27 seconds aboard the 14-year-old stallion Orphee du Breche (Concorde x Alme).
It was not too far away from a home victory, as Portugal’s António Matos Almeida and the 15-year-old Nikel de Presle (Kannan x Fennec) finished as runners-up a mere 0.03 seconds behind Torres. Third place went to Switzerland’s Beat Mändli, who had the last double clear of the class aboard Simba (Toulon x Argentinus). Quickest of all was America’s Reed Kessler, but with one rail down she had to settle for fourth this time around.
