Just like in Friday's Nations Cup in Budapest, it was Belgium that was the best in the Budapest Grand Prix with Pieter Devos claiming the win. Riding the 10 year old gelding Dream of India Greenfield (Gem of India x Night And Day) Devos won the 9240 Euro top prize. The 600 metres long course and thirteen fence track proved to be difficult for the 55 riders in the class, with only two moving on to the jump-off. Most of the faults occured at the water jump, and in the end it was only two Belgian riders that managed to finish the 1.60 track without faults; Pieter and Gregory Wathelet on the only 8 year old Seacoast Forlap DC (Querlybet Hero x Heartbreaker).
The jump-off favoured Pieter Devos and Dream of India Greenfield as they were the only pair to produce a double clear in Budapest - and with the best time of the day. Gregory Wathelet had one down, and had to settle for second place. Former French Igor Kawiak - now competing for Poland - had one time penalty on Centino du Ry (Cento x Caretino) to end third. 25 years old Emil Orban was the fastest rider with four penalties and to the Hungarian spectators’ greatest pleasure he finished fourth.
