Simon Delestre and Ryan des Hayettes unbeatable in Gothenburg

Friday, 28 February 2014

Simon Delestre with Ryan des Hayettes. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Simon Delestre and the wonderful Ryan des Hayettes were not to beat in Friday’s biggest class in Gothenburg, a 1.50 class against the clock. The French rider and the nine year old gelding by Hugo Gesmeray – who has been with Simon since he was a five year old after he found him at Eric Lamaze’s – were simply in a class of their own, as Simon produced a super smooth and – as always – fast clear to stop the clock on 59.48 seconds. Ryan de Hayettes jumped the twelve fence track easily; so quick off the ground – again giving a demonstration of his quality.

None of the remaining 22 riders could catch Simon. Closest came the rider who followed Delestre in the ring; Switzerland’s Frederique Fabre Delbos on Nirvana Basters (Rosire Sf x Iris Landai) who rode a clear round on the time of 59.57 seconds. Third was one of the last riders in the ring; Germany’s Carsten-Otto Nagel on the lovely Holiday by Solitur (Contendro x Cascavelle) – who jumped yet another great round to stop the clock at 60.10 seconds.

Earlier in the day home rider Niklas Arvidsson won a 1.40 speed class on VDL Sheraton (C-Indoctro), with Carsten-Otto Nagel following in second and Roberto Cristofolleti in third.
