Last weekend it was Kent Farrington who jumped to his first Grand Prix victory in St Tropez. " I really focused on Gazelle’s natural speed, and I was extremely careful".
"It’s always great to win a 5* Grand Prix, like this one here near Saint-Tropez, for my first participation in the HUBSIDE JUMPING. Maybe Sadri Fegaier could organise shows in the United States as I regularly win at his European shows (Kent and Gazelle have already won the HUBSIDE JUMPING de Valence’s Grand Prix twice, which Sadri Fegaier also organises, editor’s note)."
"More seriously, I would especially like to thank Sadri Fegaier and his team: we went through a difficult period and we need people like him, enthusiasts who do so much for our sport. I take my hat off to him for building a complex like this for horses and the sport, and for organising such great shows. I went last in the jump-off and Julien Epaillard was in the lead. He is renowned for going really fast, even in the States. So I had to give it my all! I really focused on Gazelle’s natural speed, and I was extremely careful: for example, a double in the jump-off can be dangerous at these speeds; additionally, I was really careful on the last oxer, I helped Gazelle and in particular on these two parts of the course, that could have been difficult for her. Next week I am going to stay here to rest and then I will be competing in Windsor and we’ll see after that depending on how my horses are.”source: © Hubside
