Simon Delestre and Napoli du Ry (Baloubet du Rouet x Silvio) won the 1,55 m speed class on Friday evening at the Stuttgart German Classic. The French pair left the World Champion Philippe Le Jeune with Vigo DÁrsouilles (Nabab de Reve x Fleuri du Manoir) and Patrice Delaveau with Orient Express (Quick Star x Le tot de Semilly) behind them.
The young German rider Katrin Eckermann, who has been doing amazingly well lately, ended up fourth together with her 10 year old Carlson (Casco x Sable Rose).
It was a class that should have had 45 riders to start, but the Spanish rider Cayetano Martinez de Irujo had a bad fall earlier today and didn´t ride. Thirteen clear rounds were delivered, and among those two 8 year olds were represented; Ludger Beerbaum's ride Chiara (Contender x Coronado) and Henrik von Eckermann's ride Quibell (Quintero x Cento). Quibell ended up as thirteen, just behind her father Quintero La Silla with Rolf-Göran Bengtsson in the saddle.
Luciana Diniz must hate the last fence by now; once again that was the only pole that fell during her round - just as in Aachen & Madrid. Edwina Tops-Alexander fell off Ciske van Overis (Celano x Darco) in the last combination and Le Prestige St Lois De Hus (Quidam de Revel x Grand Veneur) managed to touch almost every fence, sometimes both with the front and hind legs without having a single pole down!
