Quotes after the Rolex Grand Prix in Aachen

Sunday, 30 June 2013

Nick on the press conference. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Nick Skelton on his win and his winning round; “My last win here was 25 years ago, I think Janika was not even born then! I did see Janika’s round, I trotted up to the in-gate and watched her. When I walked the course for the jump-off, I thought the combination would be the problem as it was a long run to it and then very, very short inside. So, I tried to take my time a little bit [going in] – probably a little too much time – to make sure. I had to make sure that I was clear, and hopefully put a little pressure on Patrice.”

Nick on Big Star; “I am very lucky to have him, he is a wonderful horse!”

Janika on her second place; “It’s my biggest success in such a big Grand Prix. To be second is unbelievable and in front of such a crowd – it was just an amazing day. I thank my team and my horse – it was just incredible! I was the fastest yes, I know how fast these two can go – I took some risk I had nothing to lose, I was already so happy I was in the top three so I tried! Maybe I did a little too much into the double, but it’s fine – I am the happiest girl right now!”

Patrice Delaveau on being third; “Last year my horse was injured here on the morning on the day of the Nations Cup, and he was out for six months after that. This year he has been going very well, and today he felt amazing. I am very happy to come third behind horses such as this.”
