Marc Houtzager made it a home win in Friday's 1.55m VDL Groep Prize at CSI5* Indoor Brabant. Riding Sterrehof´s Calimero (Quidam de Revel x Achill Libero H), the Dutch rider left no less than 17 riders behind him in the jump-off. 

It was a good day for the Dutch, as Jur Vrieling finished in runner-up position on VDL Glasgow v. Merelsnest (Nabab de Reve x Darco) 0.44 seconds behind his compatriot. Third place went to Marcus Ehning (GER) on Gin Chin van het Lindenhof (Chin Chin x Calido I), while Penelope Leprevost (FRA) on Vagabond de la Pomme (Vigo d'Arsouilles Stx x For Pleasure) ended fourth and Maikel van der Vleuten (NED) on VDL Groep Idi Utopia (Quasimodo Z x Darco) fifth.

Earlier in the day, Nicola Philippaerts (BEL) won the 1.45m Gemeente 's-Hertogenbosch Prize aboard Ustina Sitte (Clinton x Parco). Then followed four Ducth riders; Leopold van Asten, Harrie Smolders, Maikel van der Vleuten and Lisa Nooren.
