The 150 cm 25,000 Euro Longines Ranking competition was the featured event on Saturday at
the CSI3*-W Designated Olympic Qualifier for Group C in Budapest.
The jump-off was a very international contest as the 11 finalists represented nine different
nations, among them Hungary.
László Tóth, Jnr. continued to ride in an excellent form. During the weekend he won two times
the competition for young horses and after the victory in the 150 cm Longines Ranking
competition on Thursday, he took first place in the same category on Saturday again in the
saddle of Radiháza-Echo. Breed at Kabala stud, the horse is now the hot favorite of
tomorrow’s Grand Prix.
Beside László Tóth, Jnr. just one rider, Czech Ales Opatrny went clear in the second round on
Sangris Boy but he had to settle for second place.
