The stallion Kannan is the common denominator when it comes to the winners of this weekend's Grand Prix classes at the different tours going on around Europe. At the Sunshine Tour in Spain the 3* Grand Prix went to Matthew Sampson and Kavanagh IV (Kannan x Carousel). The British rider had one of six double clear rounds in the class, but with a time of 44.02 seconds he was a little faster than runner-up Michel Robert on the 11 year old Kannan-daughter Oh d'Eole who crossed the finish line on 44.40 seconds. John Whitaker and Argento (Arko II x Gasper) were third at 44.97 seconds, and with William Funnel in fourth on Billy Angelo (Tangelo van de Zuuethoeve x Kroongraaf) it was a good day for the Brits in Spain.
The 3* Grand Prix at the Atlantic Tour went to Trevor Breen on Adventure de Kannan (Kannan x Ladalco). The Irish rider had one of five double clears in this class - which counted more than 50 riders, and left Marie Hecart on Rhune d'Euskadi (Dollar du Murier x Jus de Pomme) behind him in second with as little as 0.17 seconds separating them in the jump-off. Third place went to Isheau Wong riding Zadarijke V (San Remo x Havidoff).
