Saturday's first CSI5* class, the 1.50m Prix GL Events, went to France's very own Simon Delestre and the 10-year-old Olga van de Kruishoeve (El Torreo de Muze x Nabab de Reve). The hosts showed great form, filling the top five. 

Stopping the clock on 59.30 in the 1.50m Table A competition, Delestre took the win ahead of Philippe Rozier and Le Coultre de Muze (Presley Boy x Vigo d'Arsouilles) in second in 59.32, followed by Kevin Staut and Cloe GP Z (Corrdino x Takashi van Berkenbroek) in third in 60.89, Roger Yves Bost (FRA) and Ever de Turan (Kannan x Ibis de Courcel) in fourth in 61.00, and Nicolas Delmotte (FRA) aboard Citadin du Chatellier (L'Arc de Triomphe x Diamant de Semilly) in fifth in 61.32. 

“It’s a fabulous victory," Delestre, who won the Grand Prix Hermès with Hermès Ryan in 2018 and 2019, said in a press release from Saut Hermès. "Olga is a quick mare and is able to post a consistent performance at this level. She won in Doha, where she was a prize winner in twelve of the thirteen courses. She also won in Riyadh and Morocco, and this is her seventh international victory in six months. The Saut Hermès is her first indoor competition of the season and it will also be her last. It’s great to see her win.”
