Friday night at Jumping Amsterdam ended with Jur Vrieling closing off with victory in the 1.50m De Telegraaf Prize aboard the 11-year-old stallion VDL Glasgow vh Merelsnest (Nabab De Reve x Darco). Vrieling was delighted with his win: "Great! The crowd was incredible," he said. "Amsterdam is perhaps the most important show of the indoor season. I want to perform. This horse has all power and, moreover, a sweet and good character," concluded the winner.

Thirteen of the best riders from round one in De Telegraaf Prize, moved on to the second where four produced double clears. Vrieling was the fastest one, stopping the clock on 33.15 seconds. Spain's Manuel Fernandez Saro followed in second with a time of 33.75 riding U Watch (President x Nabab De Reve) while third place went to Italy's Emanuele Gaudiano on Chalou (Chacco Blue x Baloubet du Rouet). The last double clear was delivered by home rider Frank Schuttert on Chianti´s Champion (Champion Du Lys x Capitol I), that finished fourth. 

Earlier on in the afternoon, Germany's Marcus Ehning took the win in the 1.45m Integro Prize. Riding the 9-year-old mare Calanda 42 (Calido I x Chasseur I), Ehning left home riders Remco Been and Sander Geerink behind him in second and third place.
