Belgium’s Olivier Philippaerts took another win at the CSI5* show at Glock Horse Performance Center on Saturday. Riding H&M Legend of Love (Landzauber x Corgraf), Philippaerts went out victorious in the 1.55 Gaston Glock’s Championat. One fourth of the riders in the class moved on to the jump-off after producing first clear rounds, but again it was Philippaerts who was the fastest against the clock - just like yesterday.

0.53 seconds behind followed the Austrian rider Thomas Frühmann on the now 19 year old The Sixth Sense (Zorro T x Grannus-Granit), while third place was occupied by Netherland's Gert-Jan Bruggink on MCB Ulke (Lux x Peter Pan) with the last clear of the jump-off. 

Fourth was Germany's David Will, who had the quickest time of the day but on the expense on four faults - while Sheik Ali Bin Khalid Al Thani from Qatar finished fifth.

"My horses jump unbelievable here," said the winner afterwards. "Tomorrow I will ride H&M Armstrong van de Kapel, he has more experience. Then we will see if it's good enough to win."
