In anticipation of the top class this evening, the top international riders brought out other horses for the five-star 1.50m class. Conor Swail secured himself a win with Count Me In (v. Count Grannus). The pair rode to victory in this table against the clock with over a second difference with the rest!
Marcus Ehning stood on top for a long time with Funky Fred (by For Pleasure). Their time of 62.09 seemed incorrigible after each following combination failed to do it faster and stay clear. But that was beyond Conor Swail!
As one of the last combinations at the start, he jumped a fantastic round on Count Me In (by Count Grannus). The 15-year-old and thereby experienced gelding knew what to do and kept it clear in 60.73, taking over the lead position. With only a few combinations to go, they saw no one doing better. The top three was complete with Elian Baumann on three with Little Lumpi E (by Lordanos) who had 64,46 on the clock.
