Ahlmann on top in Prix Merial Lyon, while Guerdat secured Friday's Prix Fonds Eperon

Saturday, 03 November 2012

Christian Ahlmann has had a good weekend in Lyon so far. Photo by Ken J. Braddick/dressage-news.comSaturday's Prix Merial (150/160 m) in Lyon went Christian Ahlmann and Lorena (Larenco x Romeo). The German rider and Marion Jauss' 10 year old mare had the only double clear in the class, and also the fastest time of all the riders in the jump-off with a time of 39.34 seconds - securing the top prize of 14375 Euro. Five other riders joined Christian in the jump-off, but none of them remained faultless. Ben Maher came closest to Christian, with four faults and the time of 40.31 seconds on Aristo Z (Andiamo x Flamenco de Semilly). Home rider Kevin Staut took a popular third place, also he on four faults and a time of 41.18 seconds aboard Reveur de Hurtebise HDC (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Capricieux Des Six Sences).
