Yet another Belgian win today in the final class of the day, the Neptunus Prize. Christophe Vanderhasselt and his ten-year-old Zangersheide mare Caroline TZ (Contendro x Diamant de Semilly) rode a clear round in a 68.24 sec. time in this CSI3* 1m50 class and beat the 53 participants.
Koen Vereecke is riding an excellent competition and obtained the second spot with Glasgow MB (Belgian Warmblood, Toulon x Thunder van de Zuuthoeve) after a clear round in a 69.01 sec. time. Koen is currently in the lead as best rider of the show.
The third spot was for David Simpson for Ireland, who rode Jenson 55 (AES, Verdi TN) to a clear round in a 69.12 sec. time.
Meanwhile, the fences have been taken out of the arena for the Belgian Warmblood Foal Auction that has just started.
