Lorenzo De Luca (ITA) finished on top of Friday’s feature class at Jumping Mechelen, the CSI5* 1.50m KBC Bank & Verzekering. A double clear round, and a jump-off in 33.56 seconds, secured De Luca de win aboard the 8-year-old mare Evita van’t Zoggehof (Figo de Muze x Rubens Di Ri D'Asse). 

The hosts followed hot on De Luca’s heels: Christophe Vanderhasselt with Identity Vitseroel (Air Jordan Z x Darco) finished second, and Jos Verlooy with Igor (Emerald van’t Ruytershof x Nabab de Reve) third. Vanderhasselt crossed the finish line in 33.77 seconds, while Verlooy stopped the clock at 34.23 seconds. 

There were 43 competitors in the class, and 15 of them cleared the first round and qualified for the jump-off. Six of these also cleared the course for a second time and it was Portugal, Colombia and Belgium that followed in fourth, fifth and sixth place: Rodrigo Giesteira Almeida with GC Chopin’s Bushi (Contendro II x Nairobi) stopped the clock at 34.75 seconds, Dayro Arroyave with Alicante (Casall x Indoctro) finished the shortened course in 34.89 seconds and yesterday’s winner Niels Bruynseels with Kadaffi van Orti (Diamant de Semilly x Lord Z) crossed the finish line in 35.18 seconds. 

Later in the evening, Aurore Christen (FRA) won the CSI5*/CSI2* Henders & Hazel Open Queens Cup riding Uniflore Minotiere (Luccianno x Dandy du Plape). The runner-up position went to Ann Carton-Grootjans (BEL) with Kai Licha de Carmel (Prince van de Wolfsakker x Quidam de Revel) and she was followed by Stephanie Holmén (SWE) with Kirlo van den Bosrand (Cardento I x Utrillo van de Heffinck), Juulia Jylas (FIN) with Courage T Z (Calvino Z x Espri) and Celine Schoonbroodt-de Azevedo (BEL) with Cheppetta (Chepetto x Cash).
