This week the CSI5* Longines Masters of Hong Kong kicks off. This is the last leg of the tri-continental Longines Masters Series which opened in Los Angeles in October and continued to Paris in December.

With Germany’s Marco Kutscher and Van Gogh having won the opening round at the Longines Masters of Los Angeles and local hero Patrice Delaveau powering Lacrimoso 3 HDC home in the Longines Grand Prix in Paris, the competition between the world’s top show jumpers is now wide open for the last leg in Hong Kong. A repeat of his Paris win in Hong Kong will earn the French star a bonus of 500,000 euros, leading him on his way to win the Masters Grand Slam Super Bonus, while Marco Kutscher could collect a 250,000 euro bonus for two non-successive victories.

Patrice Delaveau, Kevin Staut, John Whitaker, Ludger Beerbaum, Marcus Ehning and Bertram Allen are among the top names on the entry list for the event.
