The last and the biggest class in Verona on Friday – a 1.50/1.55 class – went to the man who seems to be winning everything at the moment; Scott Brash. Riding Bon Ami (Pavarotti V. Helle x Richebourg), the British rider had one of twelve double clears in the class – and with a time of 33.83 he went to the top picking up the top prize of 15.000 Euro and securing more Longines Ranking points. Just 0,1 seconds behind was home rider Massimo Grossato on Quala (l'Arc de Triomphe x Jalisco B) – closing off a very good day for the Italians on home soil. Simon Delestre finished third on Napoli du Ry (Baloubet du Rouet/Silvio I) with a time of 34.38 seconds.
The 1.50 speed class went to home rider Lorenzo de Luca on Elky van het Indihof (Toulon x Thunder van de Zuuthoeve). On the 9 year old mare the Italian rider had one of eleven clears in the class, and was by far the fastest with the time of 58.99 seconds. Runner-up was Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum on the veteran Checkmate (Contender x Pik Bube II) at 60.39 seconds, while Jur Vrieling was third on Zavall VDL (Casall x Emilion) on a time of 60.50 seconds.
The 1.45 class was also won by a home rider; Emanuele Gaudiano on Caesario 6 (Cornet Obolensky x Pilot). On the time of 49.94, Gaudiano was the fastest of the clear rounds. Then followed four more Italian riders; Nathale Chiaudani, Luca Maria Moneta and Giovanni Consorti.
