Santiago Lambre secures Brazilian victory in CSI5* Grand Prix Doha

In Doha this weekend there is jumping at CSI5* level. This morning, one of the highlights of the weekend was already on the programme; the Grand Prix of the CSI5* competition. There were 25 competitors at the start and four of them managed to keep zero in the basic round. So a jump-off with four had to be decisive. In that jump-off, Santiago Lambre was the best. He was the only one with his Chacco Blue II (by Chacco Blue) to pass the jump-off without any jumping faults. His time of 33.05 seconds, which was not the fastest time, was thus enough to secure victory.

Abdullah Alsharbatly counted on the KWPN-bred Alamo (by Ukato) to jump to second place. The duo had the fastest time behind their name (29.7 seconds) but their jumping fault relegated them to second place. Rikke Belinda Barker and Tabalou PS (by Taloubet Z) took third place. For them there was one jumping fault in 35.66 seconds. 

Emanuele Gaudiano (Nikolaj de Music) and Rashid Towaim Ali Al Marri (Concordess Nrw) were fourth and fifth. 

Besides the Grand Prix, a Longines ranking class of the CSI5* competition was also jumped in Doha today. In this class with jump-off, Gefried Puck was the best. In a jump-off with six, he took victory in the saddle of Equitron Ornaat V (by Ut Majeur de Brecey) by jumping a clear round in 34.24 seconds. Abdullah Alsharbatly was also good for second place here. This time he saddled Dancing Wolf OL (by Mylord Carthago) to jump clear to the finish in 34.87 seconds. Nadja Peter Steiner was the best rider in third place. Her Espoir Blanc Cristal (by Vigo Cece) did not come close to the wood and clocked off in 36.33 seconds. 

Ines Joly (Faylinn de Fondcombe) and Emanuele Gaudiano (Vasco) completed the top five.
