CSI3* St Lo 2016

Maelle Martin kept the victory in France in Sunday's CSI3* Grand Prix of St Lo. Aboard her stallion Giovani de la Pomme, 25-year-old Maelle Martin was not to be beat by her competitive compatriots Marc Dilasser and Alexandre Fontanelle.

Only ten riders managed to keep a clean sheet all the way through the 1.50m CSI3* course of the Grand Prix of St Lo. Two other riders, Great Britain’s Joseph Clayton and France’s Jérôme Hurel, finished on a single time penalty. In the jump-off, the victory fell into the hands of the young French lady rider Maelle Martin and her 10-year-old stallion Giovani de la Pomme – sired by the For Pleasure-son Shindler de Muze out of the famous mare Narcotique de Muze II.

With a time of 35.48 seconds, Martin turned out unbeatable in the jump-off in St Lo. France’s Marc Dilasser and the 9-year-old Cliffton (Clinton x Hallando II van de Watering) gave it a good try, but stopped the clock over a second later than Martin. It took Alexandre Fontanelle another 1.2 seconds to settle for third place aboard Quaprice de l’Etivant (Carpaccio x Qualisco III).

Belgium’s Christophe Vanderhasselt and the Belgian bred Gino van de Vrunte (Jokinal de Bornival x Karioka del Follee) finished in fourth place in 38.52 seconds, while Germany’s Maximilian Lill and ABC Trixi (Quidam de Revel x Carolus I) ended up fifth.
