Harrie Smolders made sure that the Dutch success spreads out around the globe, when he won yesterday's $125,000 Villas at Rancho Valencia World Cup Grand Prix of Del Mar. Riding Regina Z (Rex Z x Savoy Hanover), Smolders secured the win ahead of home rider rich Fellers riding the 18 year old Flexible (Cruising x Safari). Not only did he win, Smolders also recorded the third place on Enjoy Louis (Coriano x Kannan). It was a good day for Smolders' boss Axel Verlooy as he also saw his son Jos, who recently won the Longines Grand Prix in Los Angeles, placing tenth on Domino (Thunder van de Zuuthoeve x Azur Depaulstra).
