Brazil’s Eduardo Menezes topped last weekend’s CSIO5* Longines Grand Prix of Coapexpan after a triple clear round riding Quintol (Quintender 2 x Cento). Menezes produced one of only two triple clears in this 1.60m Grand Prix, securing the victory by 1.7 seconds.

“Quintol is 13 now, and after four years jumping everything for me I felt him tired in the second half of last year. He was not enjoying his job anymore so I decide to give him a break, I sent him three months to Normandy to the beach and these two weeks in Mexico were his first Grand Prix classes since October last year. He did seven rounds with six clears and ended up winning the five-star Grand Prix, also my first five-star Grand Prix victory! So I can’t say how happy I am to have him back even better than he was before!” Menezes said to World of Showjumping.

“The show was great as always, the grass field here is one of the very best I ever jumped on and the atmosphere at Mexican shows is always welcoming. We had an amazing two weeks here and now look forward for the rest of the season!” Menezes continued.

Runner-up in the Grand Prix was Menezes’ compatriot Rodrigo Lambre on Coleman (Kitile Horta x Indorado). Third place went to Mexico’s own Enrique Gonzalez – Menezes’ colleague at E2 Stables – on Chacna (Chacco-Blue x Narew XX), who had one pole down in the jump-off. The hosts also took care of fourth place, courtesy of Fernando Martinez Sommer on Cor Bakker (Colandro x Quattro) – the final pair in the jump off. With one time penalty in round one, Argentina’s Fabian Sejanes finished fifth riding C. Amalia Z (Crown Z x Damiro B).
