ScottSanctosLondonNobody could beat Scott Brash and Hello Sanctos in London. Photos by Stefano Grasso/Longines Global Champions Tour.World no. one and 2013 LGCT champion Scott Brash won the Longines Global Champions Tour of London Grand Prix presented by Qatar in spectacular fashion in front of a rapturous home crowd who would have raised the roof of Horse Guards Parade Ground if there had been one. From the very beginning, Brash was hailed as the one to beat and he never faltered aboard Hello Sanctos (Quasimodo v. Molendreef x Nabab de Reve) – that currently is ranked as the best horse in the world.

Photo by Stefano Grasso/Longines Global Champions Tour.It was home rider Michael Whitaker and Elie van de Kolmen (President x Darco) that flew to victory in the Massimo Dutti Prix in London on Saturday. The CSI5* 1.45/1.50 speed class took place in front of a very supportive British crowd who gasped and cheered as Michael dared his mare to turn tighter and faster. Second place went to world no1 Scott Brash and Hello Annie (Contendro I x For Pleasure), who led the competition from mid-way through the draw with an impressive round which looked like it would't be beaten. Third went to Tiffany Foster and Victor (Elmshorn x Grandeu) who had led the way from early on only to be pipped at the post by the two home stars.

_K7X0245Marlon Zanotelli pictured at home at Ashford Farm in Belgium on Chino D'Enfer. Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.There is no discussing when it comes to Marlon Zanotelli's commitment. Every morning at 7 before his day of work starts at Ashford Farm, Zanotelli gets in the car to take the thirty minute drive from Bocholt, Belgium to Valkenswaard, Netherlands to ride his top horse AD Clouwni – that is stabled at his owners Doda de Miranda and Athina Onassis de Miranda's yard. Then it's back to ride the eight-or-so-horses at home. Among them you will find Michel Robert's former success horse Nenuphar 'Jac who will be sure to greet Zanotelli's arrival with a 'Bisou' – a little kissing trick he learned from his former French rider, which is willingly demonstrated as Marlon shows us around the brand new stable which is filled with current and future stars.
