Zoer races to victory in Den Bosch

Saturday, 26 March 2011

Albert Zoer and Sam secured yet another Dutch win at Indoor Brabant.Albert Zoer gave the home crowds yet another win in tonight’s BMC Prijs; a 1.55 class with a jump-off. The class saw only four of the 30 riders go clear, and there were a lot of faults collected around the course – six riders retired.

Penelope Leprevost was first to go on Nenuphar Jac – a SF stallion by Cumano. They set the standard with a lovely clear round. Jur Vrieling followed next, and copied Leprevost on VDL Bubalu (by Baloubet du Rouet). Both riders made it all look easy. Then followed a lot of faults, but Katie McVean on Delphi (by Leo Caylon) managed to ride a great rhythmical and balanced round –crossing the finish line on a clean sheet. Last rider to go Albert Zoer made the crowds go crazy with his clear round on Sam (by Calvados).

Jur Vrieling and VDL Bubalu took third place. The jump-off was reduced to six fences, and opened for two tight turns and the rest was all gallop stretches. Penelope yet again rode a great and fast clear, and her time was 34.37. Jur followed her, and Bubalu was sky high – they couldn’t catch Leprevost though with their time of 34.79. Katie McVean had an oxer down, but last to go Albert Zoer raced around the course making a very tight turn when he landed after the second last fence and crossed the finish line on 31.92 – shaving off no less than 2,45 seconds of Leprevost’s time.
