Nicola Philippaerts won the first car at Sweden International Horse Show in Stockholm, after being the fastest one in Saturday's 1,50 m class against the clock riding Quenzo de la Roque (Kannan x Jasmin), Nicola could take his new Volkswagen for a spin. Marlon Modolo Zanotelli, who was on fire yesterday and won both showjumping classes as well as a show class, had to see himself beaten with half a second. Marlon rode the nine year old mare Vera (Contender x Corrado II).
Third place went to Cameron Hanley with Dundee v. Dwerse Hagen (Caesar van de Helle x Brownboy) and fourth to home rider Johan Lundh with Miebello (Quite Easy x Cardento).
"I was lucky enough to be in the end of the class and could see Marlon ride. My horse is naturally fast but I still had to take some risks," Nicola said after his win. "It is a great show here and it is amazing that they can fill up the arena already in the first year and it is a perfect atmosphere."
Cameron was happy about the loud audience: "Personally for my horse it is good with the atmosphere, since he is a little lazy and wakes up a bit when the audience is cheering."
Cameron, who was out for a long time got the question about how he feels being back competing: "It is really unbelievable, I'm lucky just to be back doing what I love to do. A couple of years ago I had an injury and I didn't compete for two years and I thought my career was over and that I never would ride again. So every time I get back on a horse I just feel so lucky. I spend four month in the hospital and a year on crouches. Then things got better and better and when I started to ride a little bit it actually helped my whole physical condition. "
Later in the evening Peder Fredricson won the 1,40 m class with H&M Cash In (Cashandcarry x Corofino I) ahead of Jur Vrieling with Flash Dance v. Kalevallei (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Gottwald) and Niklas Arvidsson with Cobolt (Cyklon x Camaro M).
