Sunday, 22 May 2011

Frank Schillewaert and Marquis de la Lande won the Grand Prix in Copenhagen. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The 1.50 Grand Prix class at the CSIO4* in Copenhagen Sunday was won by French rider Franck Schillewaert and the Selle Francais stallion Marquis de la Lande(Quito de Baussy*Waiti x Starter). The class counted 43 riders to start and only eight of them crossed the finish line on a clean sheet after the first round. The eleven best riders got to ride the second round as well, but this time it was only Schillewaert who managed a clear round on the time 54.96.

Both Dermott Lennon and Janne-Friederike Meyer beat Schillewaert’s time by severeal seconds, but that didn’t help them as they each had one pole down aboard Kalvinretto (Kildare x Calvin Z) and Celagon Lambrasco (Achill Libero H x Coriolan).

Tina Lund gave the home crowd something to cheer for when she secured the fourth place with one fence down in both rounds.
