A great performance again of our 4-year-old Valentino Boy in the Lannoo Stallion Competition. Just like in the first leg he realised a great clear round under Koen Vereecke. Cavalier Russe Z also showed his class and stayed clear. For Special Star de Corlato there was a bad luck fault, but he definitely exhibited his talents.
In the competition for 6-year-olds Quickly v/d Kruishoeve jumped a convincing double clear round, also with Koen Vereecke. For Quaprice JW (Frederik Wuytack) and Special Cera du Maillet (Laurent Thirion) we noted four penalty points after two otherwise flawless rounds.
