Quotes after the Grand Prix in Amsterdam

Sunday, 26 January 2014

John on Argento: "He’s really competitive." Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The winner John Whitaker on his plan for the jump-off; “I think it’s every rider's plan to win a Grand Prix. Argento always tries his best, he’s really competitive – and I know if I get to the jump-off I have a good chance!”

On his 2014 season and the WEG in Normandy John said; “I am not sure about the WEG, it will be quite tough. Number one and two in the world are British riders, so it will be difficult to get in on the team – but I am happy if I can win a Grand Prix every now and again.”

John also added: “I think it’s my first Grand Prix win here in Amsterdam, I was second in 1985 – so it took me a long time to win it!”

Runner-up Gert Jan Bruggink: “John was really fast, although I did not get to see his rounds. He beat me in Münich [in the end of 2013] and now he beat me again, so I maybe need to get some advice from him!”

Third placed Alex Duffy; “I want to thank the organizers for having me, I was absolutely living the dream today. This is definitely one of my biggest results to date, and Living The Dream is one of the best horses I ever had.”

Sport adviser at Jumping Amsterdam, Jeroen Dubbeldam added: “I am very happy with how the show went – it was full tribunes, and people waited for the prize giving which is quite rare. The riders that ended first and third today was late accepted for the show, so it was very nice for both them and us that they did so well!”
