Steve Guerdat wins in front of his home crowd

Friday, 31 May 2013

Steve Guerdat and Sidney VIII were best in the rain. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Steve Guerdat won Friday's speed class with Sidney VIII (Cary x Quidam de Revel) in pouring rain at the CSI5* show in St. Gallen. Second place went to Guy Williams on Bijou van de Vijfheide (Darco x Laudanum xx) and third place to Luca Maria Moneta riding Quo van de Vains (Robin II Z x Narcos II).

The organizers are doing their very best to keep the grass footing in order, and have cancelled several classes. Still half of the field of riders in today's speed class chose not to start, and in the end only 41 of the 76 riders on the list went in the ring. Out of them 16 were clear and nine retired or got eliminated.

It doesn't look like the rain will stop so it might be a very challenging Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup for both horses and riders later this afternoon.
