It was Lucy Davis and her 11 year old Barron (For Pleasure x Nabab de Reve) that owned the Rolex Grand Prix presented by Audi at the Brussels Stephex Masters.

The class had 50 entered riders and as many as 17 of them went through to the jump-off with additionally 15 riders on a four-fault score. As expected the jump-off became a race against the clock with some of the best riders in the world fighting their heart out to try and take home the win, the nice Audi A7 and the 33.000 euro.

No one got close to the 34,68 seconds it took for Lucy Davis and Barron to finish the jump-off, though everyone did their best. Second best was Karim El Zoghby riding his 10 year old mare Amelia (Cantos x Numero Uno) crossing the finish line in 35,14 seconds while third place went to Italy's Piergiorgio Bucci and Casallo Z (Casall x Carthago Z).

Last year's Grand Prix winner Kent Farrington had to settle for fourth place riding the Kashmir van Schuttershof-mare Gazelle while Maikel van der Vleuten and VDL Groep Arera C (Indoctro x Voltaire) ended fifth.

The two home riders from Stephex - Daniel Deusser with Cornet d'Amour (Cornet Obolensky x ) and Lorenzo De Luca with Geisha van Orshof (Cabrio van de Heffinck x Parco) went all in. Both riders had a fence down, but were the fastest riders on four faults to finish as number 11 and 12.
