The youngest horses here at the Sunshine Tour took to the arenas for the second day of jumping this week, with total prize money of 3000€ . 

Victorious in both sections of the 7yr old classes, the Belgian rider Gregory Wathelet was unstoppable.  In section A, with the mare “Cherie” his time was incredibly fast, almost 10s in front of the British rider Leonie Aitkenhead who was second.  In section B, this time riding “Melia de Regor”, he beat another Brit, Max Routledge, another rider consistently placed here at the Tour in the Young Horse classes.

The local Spanish rider from Cádiz, Carlos Bosch and, once again, Omer Karaevli,  along with the Irish rider Greg Broderick, were the top three in section A of the 6yr olds.  In section B, Omer topped the podium with the KWPN “Istinov”, followed by Christopher Frazer and in third was the Spanish rider, from Asturias, Marcos Diaz, riding “Cobalt Coco” CDE.

In the 5yr old class the Brazilian, Olympic eventing rider Carlos Parro, who is based in the UK, took the win on the mare, “Cool Striker”.  He is preparing this mare for the eventing season.  “It is a very good thing for the mare to jump on grass as she is being trained for eventing and needs to adapt easily to all types of ground.  Both yesterday and today she went very well and I am delighted with her”.

Axel Narolles is based in Bordeaux and was the winner in section B with the mare “Esperanzza”.  The mare is owned by Julia Cuny and Yves Boutourlinsky.  “the work that the course designers are doing here is magnificent, the improvement I am noticing in the mare is phenomenal.  The arenas are very good and although we are here training, today I decided to advance a little and in the end we won”.

Tomorrow we begin the first CSI4*, one of the three held here at the Sunshine Tour this year on its 25th anniversary.  There will be three Big Tour classes ranging from 1.33 to 1.50m.Escribe aquí tu cuerpo para la noticia
