Patrice Delaveau and Ornella Mail - here at the Falsterbo Derby two years ago. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The Derby in La Baule Saturday saw a home win from Patrice Delaveau and Ornella Mail HDC (Lando x Alligator Fontaine). Patrice was on of two riders who managed to clear the course consisting of 21 fences. The course had several water trays, natural fences and two combinations - a double at 5a and b and a triple combination as fence 12.

Also second place went to France with Michel Hecart and Nokia de Bekka (Quick Star x Apache d'Adriers) who finished on a clean sheet, but 1.90 seconds slower than Patrice and Ornella. Third place went to a derby expert, Shane Breen on Ominerale Courcelle (Kannan x Caprice d'Elle). Shane produced the fastest time of the day, but with four faults he could not threaten the home win. Steve Guerdat and Sidney VIII secured fourth place, also on four faults, before the following riders had collected 12 faults or more around the demanding Derby course.
