The third class of the day has just ended at our beautiful show here in Beervelde. This class was a 1m40 class that was ridden in two phases. De Belgian riders once again did a great job here, but it was just not good enough. In the end they didn’t have what it takes to take the victory.
That victory went to the Spanish rider Alberto Marquez Galobardes. He rode a clear second phase with the Selle Français gelding Aldo du Manoir (f. Iowa). He was faster than the young Belgian rider Gilles Thomas who ended on second place with Luna van het Dennehof (f. Prince van de Wolfsakker). This Belgian combination left the wood untouched and finished in 30,06 seconds. Andres Vereecke ended on third place. He saddled Kashmira Z (f. Kashmir Van’T Schuttershof) to clear the cours in 30,24 seconds.
Julietta Faligot ended on fourth place. She jumped a clear second phase with Verite Une Prince (f. Numer Une D’Iso) and finished in 30,48 seconds. Jeroen de Winter completed the top five. With Jota van het Leliegof (f. Veritgo Saint-Benot) under the saddle, he cleared the course in 31,56 seconds.
