Eighteen year old, Spanish rider, Elena Appendino had her second big win of the week today in the 1.40, Small GP here at the Andalucía Pre Sunshine Tour, which is sponsored by ‘la Consejería de Turismo, Cultura y Deporte’ and co-financed by the European Union.


Elena won this class with the 11 yr old mare, ’Grupo Prom Hacienda’, who is by the beautiful grey stallion who regularly competed here at Montenmedio, and after whom, arena 2, is named ‘Coltaire Z’, with the dam sire ‘Libertino’. The mare is owned by José Alfredo Hernández Ortega and this pair, topped the leader board in a jump off of nine horses. This was their second win at this height this week, as yesterday they also won their class, a great start to their Tour.
