The three star Grand Prix in Lanaken went to Frank Schuttert and Winchester HS (Numero Uno x Nimmerdor). The pair was runners-up in yesterday’s 1.50 class at the Z-Tour, but today they were unbeatable in the five horse jump-off that concluded the Belgian event. Coming in as first to go in both rounds the pathfinders of the day ended as winners, and as always they produced a spectacular jump-off with Winchester throwing in bucks and jumping sky-high.
Closest to the two came Bart Bles on Lord Sandro (Lordanos x Sandro), also clear to secure double Dutch on top – but almost two seconds behind on the time. Then followed the fastest round of the class, but on the expense of the b-element in the vertical falling to the ground as Douglas Lindelöw and Talina (Matterhorn x Heidelberg) ended third.
Emma Emanuelsson secured another Swedish victory in Arezzo, as she won the three star Grand Prix at the Toscana Tour on Titan (Camaro x Cardento). The winning pair from the Grand Prix of Gothenburg in the beginning of March were 0.05 seconds faster against the clock than runner-up Jana Wargers on the lovely Cornet’s Dream (Cornet Obolensky x Cordobes I). In third followed Mario Wilson Fernandes for Portugal riding Zurito Do Belmonte (Gedeon d’l’Herbage x Granusso) – also he clear but over a second behind the winner.
The three star Grand Prix in Lummen saw Great Britain’s Joe Clee on top riding Utamaro D Ecaussines (Diamant de Semilly x Quidam de Revel). The in-form rider goes from strength to strength, and with the fractions on his side in this class as he beat Pieter Keunen and Cedrick (Couleur-Rubin x Quattro B) from the Netherlands by a mere 0.01 seconds. In third followed Ireland’s Shane Breen on Confident of Victory (Cornet Obolensky x Damokles).
