Sunday’s CSI5* 1.45m Borek Prize at the 2023-edition of The Dutch Masters went to Julien Epaillard (FRA) – current world no. three – and the 12-year-old mare Dubai du Cedre (Baloubet du Rouet x Diamant de Semilly), a pair that also topped Friday's CSI5* 1.45m Gemeente 's Hertogenbosch Prize.

With a time of 51.92, Epaillard was the quickest in the class judged as Table A against the clock – taking the win ahead of Gudrun Patteet (BEL) and Sea Coast Monalisa van'T Paradijs (Bamako de Muze x Emerald), who had to settle for the runner-up position when the clock stopped on 53.09.

"At the moment, I still don't know her very well," Epaillard told World of Showjumping after his second victory of the weekend with the talented chestnut mare. "I am still in a process of finding the right bit for her, we are really only just getting to know each other," he continued. "However, she is very competitive: She already won the 1.45m class on Friday, and jumped the 1.50m yesterday. I believe in her; she is a naturally very fast horse, she turns really well, and she also has a huge stride."

Lars Kersten (NED) and Boebka v. Marienshof Z (Balou du Rouet x Marien) placed third in 54.17, while Joe Stockdale (GBR) and Equine America Bingo du Chateau (Quaprice Bois Margot x Royal Feu) finished fourth in 54.20 and Simon Delestre (FRA) fifth in 54.83 aboard Enjoy d'Elle (Kannan x Carthago).
