The flying Frenchman Roger-Yves Bost and his stunning Pegase du Murier (Adelfos x Le Tot de Semilly) flew to the win in the CSI5* BMW Trophy class in Shanghai on Saturday, with the top French rider taking home a brand new car and almost 90 thousand euros in prize money. 

There were only 14 clears from the 49 starters, with eliminations and retirements from Abdullah Al Sharbatly, Kimberly Prince and local rider Jacqueline Lai. Ben Maher put in a great round with Don Vito (Quaprice Z x Jus de Pomme), raising the bar for the rest of the field and throwing down a considerable time to beat. Compatriot and fellow Olympic gold medallist Scott Brash bettered his time with Hello M'Lady (Indoctro x Baloubet du Rouet), eventually finishing in 3rd overall. American rider Kent Farrington put in another masterful round with Creedance (Lord Z x Notaris) to finish second, just shy of Bosty’s time with the fiery chestnut gelding skipping and bucking as he flew around the course. 

But it was Bosty’s moment to shine, as the French legend galloped the course flying to the finish a full second ahead of the rest of the field. The pair proved untouchable, setting themselves up nicely for the Grand Prix ahead, which kicks off at 16:15 local time.
