Penelope Leprevost wins the 1st GP qualifier in Saint-Lô

Saturday, 26 October 2013

Penelope Leprevost. Photo by On the second day of competition in Saint-Lô, the riders of the CSI3* event had their first chance to qualify for the Sunday Grand Prix. 62 pairs jumped in this 1.45 class, counting for the FEI Longines rankings, and 11 qualified for the jump-off. The Belgian Champion Gregory Wathelet could have won riding Conrad, but one fence down prevented him to reach the first place and he eventually ended fourth. Pénélope Leprevost finally snatched the victory with her mare Nice Stephanie (by Cardento), stopping the clock at 35,30 seconds.

It was triple French on top, with Timothee Anciaume on second - also he double clear at 36,52 seconds in the jump-off riding Paddock Du Plessis *HN (by Kannan). Philippe Rozier was third on Quel Chanu (by Flipper d'Elle) with the third clear in the jump-off at the time of 40.15 seconds.

10 nations are already sure to be part of the Grand Prix field: Morocco, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Great Britain, Brazil, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Ukraine.
