It was a Dutch domination in the two first speed classes in Den Bosch today. The 1.50 class against the clock featured 42 riders, whereas 21 rode clear rounds. It was Albert Zoer on Sam (by Calvdaos) who set the fastest round of the day; with a clear round and a time of 56.54 he took the first prize home. Runner-up was Edwina Alexander on Cevo Socrates (by Darco), while Eric van der Vleuten on VDL Groep Utascha SFN (by Lux) was third.
A lot of the riders had faults in one of the two combinations of the course; Harrie Smolders, Billy Twomey and Kevin Staut were amongst those who faulted here. A lot of the horses who jumped clear rounds also jumped great; BMC van Grunsven Simon, Couletto, Cash, Taloubet Z and H&M Tornesch looked to be in good form.
The first speed class of the day – a 1.40 – was won by Piet Raijmakers Jr. on Van Schijndel’s Chanelly – a 10 year old mare by Contender. The Dutch rider pleased the home crowds by speeding around the course, taking home the first prize with a clear round and a time of 49.59. Most of the riders schooled the horses, and took it easy around the course that consisted of eleven fences – so there were a lot of time faults that were collected. Two other Dutch riders gave it their best though; Marc Houtzager was second on Voltaire (by Now or Never) and Albert Zoer took the third spot on Wolli Bollie (by Cantos).
The last class of the day, another 1.50 class was won by Marcus Ehning on Sabrina (by Sandro Boy). The German rider beat Robert Smith on Raging Bull Vangelis S (by Nonstop) with 1.08 seconds in the jump-off, leavin them on second place. Leopold van Asten was third on VDL Groep Amelie.
