Lauren Hough and Quick Study get their prize in St. Lo. Photo by Pixizone.Two American riders took home wins in the three star Grand Prix’s of St. Lo and Brabat. Lauren Hough and Quick Study (Quick Star x Muguet du Manoir) were victorious in St. Lo, France, leaving two French riders behind them; Guillaume Batillat on Miss D’Helby (Papillon Rouge x Muguet du Manoir) and Gilles de Balanda on AK’s Clowney (Carvallo x Cassini I). Full results from St. Lo here.

It was with deep emotion that Lauren Hough won the Grand Prix in St. Lo. Honored by the organizing committee just before this last class, her Selle Français gelding was the other star of the day as he was born in Normandy 12 years ago by Jules Mesnildrey, illustrious breeder who bred the two top sires Le Tot de Semilly and Diamant de Semilly and who died recently. “It was Quick Study's last competition in Europe,” she said. “He'll leave France in 10 days and we'll participate to the FEI World Cup legs of Lexington and Toronto. Next weekend, I'll be in Caen for a CSI3*.”

In Brabat, Morocco, Katie Prudent took home the Grand Prix on V. Germany’s Armin Himmelreich was second and Francois Mathy Jr third. Full results from Brabat here.
