Last event of the day: Pénélope Leprevost on the top step for the Prix Premiumares
02-06-2017

Ramatuelle, June 1, 2017 – Another fine course by Uliano Vezzani for the day's last event: 13 obstacles, including a triple for number 10 and an oxer with its back to the in-gate for number 13. A course that is balanced with the starting-gate: 11 pairs with a pristine score qualified to participate in the jump-off. 

 

Participants had trouble with the triple next to the VIP grandstands. 

Marie Hécart (FRA)/ Cenwood Delle Lame, Daniel Deusser (GER)/ SX Hidalgo v. Number 3 world rank Gudrun Patteet (BEL) / Sea Coast Atlantic were eliminated from the jump-off due to a fault on the triple.

 

Patrice Delaveau (FRA) /Aquila HDC, had bad luck and faulted on the course's last oxer. So did John Whitaker (GBR)/ Ornellaia, and shortly before him, Christian Ahlman number 5 world rank / Caribis Z touched the same bar…

Kent Farrington, number 1 world rank / Creedance was very disappointed not to find the right pace and finished with 4 faults.

A high score for Julien Epaillard and Toupie de la Roque who left the course with 15 points.

 

The jump-off competitors put on a fine show for the audience in St-Tropez. 

7 of them performed without faults. 

Starting off was the Mexican rider, Enriqué Gonzales / Chacna, putting pressure on the following participants with a nice double without fault in 39.67 sec. securing him a fine 7th place. 

Alberto Zorzi (ITA) on Rackham’Jo, Athina Onassis's horse, took 6th place.

Simon Delestre (FRA) ran a perfect course and took all options with Hermès Ryan, placing him as leader at 36.42 sec.

 

That was before Pénélope Leprevost (FRA) / Urano de Cartigny, a 9-year old stallion that she has been riding at this level since early April. She lowered the chronometer a few hundredths of seconds and took first place.

Philippe Rozier (FRA) / Raotep de Toscane held back a bit on the double and tied for third place with Jos Verlooy (BEL) / Caracas at 37.05 sec.

Kevin Staut (FRA) was the last to jump with Ayade de Septon, unfortunately, he made three faults and gave the victory to Pénélope Leprevost.

 

Words from Pénélope Leprevost: "This horse belongs to Geneviève Maigret and only recently came to my stables. It's his first victory in an event at this level. He was fast and responded to all of my commands. I am very satisfied with this victory, both for him and for Geneviève Maigret." 

 

Words from Simon Delestre: "Hermès Ryan was fast but I didn't take risks, I knew that my time of 36.42 could be beaten. That's the sport!"
