Saturday morning's CSI5*-W 1.50m Prix Boehringer Ingelheim at the 2023-edition of Longines Equita Lyon went to Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) – current world number one, double world champion and Olympic team champion – and his 10-year-old Dzara Dorchival (Qlassic Bois Margot x Raphael, bred by Sebastien Fonck). 

With a time of 60.82, the Swede topped the 1.50m class judged as a Table A against the clock, ahead of Kendra Claricia Brinkop (GER) and Ma Belle (Ugano Sitte x Bayard d'Elle, bred by Gust Brosens) in second in 61.95. 

"I'm always motivated, but after yesterday's bad round, I am happy to have a revenge today," von Eckermann told World of Showjumping after his victory. "The course was a nice, flowing course – it was nice to ride as you did not have to go crazy to be fast, you could just keep moving in the same rhythm all the way. You could win with a nice round, it had nothing to do with going flat out. That would have been my approach anyway; I want to keep Dzara for bigger things and not go all out. Dzara has a fantastic mind, she really tries." 

Maikel van der Vleuten (NED) and Dywis HH (Toulon x Corofino II, bred by Peter Huisman) placed third, while Kevin Staut (FRA) and Visconti du Telman (Toulon x Dollar du Murier, bred by Marjorie & Francoise Sanguinetti) finished fourth, followed by Denis Lynch (IRL) aboard Dark Chocolate 48 (Casall x Acodetto 2, bred by ZG Oldekop/Hulshof) in fifth.
