Maikel van der Vleuten took yet another win on VDL Groep Sapphire (Mr. Blue x Grand Veneur) in Madrid today. As last to go in the jump-off Maikel set up an unbeatable speed on his white mare to push Nick Skelton and his incredible Big Star (Quick Star x Nimmerdor) down to second.

No less than sixteen riders went on to the jump-off, and Nick Skelton set an early target on his eight year old big jumping stallion with a clear round and a time of 36.30. Nick was chased by all the riders after him, but it was only Maikel as last to go that could catch him with a time of 35.24. Simon Delestre and Napoli du Ry (Baloubet du Rouet x Silvio I) was third in this exciting jump-off.
