Exquisite start of the Stallions at Jumping Mechelen!
Tuesday is known as the ‘Breeding’ day of Jumping Mechelen.
In the 5-years old stallion competition we had Luigi d’Eclipse and Mark Bluman competing. After a clear round they also jumped a fast clear round in the jump-off, finishing on a 4th place! In the 7-years old stallion competition we had Diamond Z competing with Dominique Hendrickx and Diesel GP du Bois Madame with Mark Bluman.
Both jumped a promising first clear round. In the jump-off Mark and Diesel secured a fast clear round, finishing 2nd!
The highlight of the evening was the Sires of the World class, with Alicante and Jérôme Guery. The pressure was high: are they able to win it again? After a clear round they already secured a top 10-placement. They were last to go in the jump-off and fast! Unfortunately they were 5 hundredth of a second too slow and had to settle with a second place!
