Martínez Bastida wins both of the big classes starting off the third week in fine style, here at Montenmedio.
Mariano Martínez Bastida is a very successful Spanish rider from the region of Murcia and has been a podium regular here in this Summer Tour at Montenmedio. Today he increased his winnings to the very tidy sum of, 13.870€. Once again, riding the talented and very fast CLEARTOON (X CARTHAGO), he repeated his top results winning today’s 1.45m class. Completing the hat trick he won the 1.40m, riding HYBALIA (x TYGO), putting them in the top three in this 1.40m class for the fifth time this Tour.
Second place with a beautifully ridden round was 1.45m Eduardo Álvarez Aznar riding the lovely ‘F’ (BUSTIQUE x KRUNCH DE BREVE). This is their best result after their third place in the same class at the beginning of last week’s jumping. The talented Brazilian rider Pedro Veniss riding BALADA DE COLORES (BALOUBET DU ROUET x COULEUR-RUBIN) also rode a very stylish round and took third place.
In the 1.40m second place was taken by the Belgian rider Ignace Philips de Vuyst and CORTEZ VAN’T KLEIN ASDONK Z (CORNET OBOLENSKY x ANDIAMO Z) and third was the Italian rider Olimpia Bargagni with FREYA.
Javier Trenor ‘Chape’, who qualified as an FEI level 4 course designer at the end of last year, was responsible for both of these classes today. The classes were qualifiers for tomorrow’s FEI Ranking class in which each rider may compete with two horses.

In second was Olivia Álvarez riding GISMO DE PRAVIA (JIMY DE PRAVIA) and in third was the Portuguese rider Duarte Seabra, who has just arrived at the Tour, and was riding TWIX V OVERSIS Z (TOULON x DIAMANT DE SEMILLY).
The winner of the 1.30m was Alejandro Entrecanales with UGO DE PLESSIS (QUINCY x PALESTROO II) this being his second time in the top three in the Tour so far.

Alejandro Entrecanales with BLUBEL DES BRIMBELLES (PARADIS LATIN x DIAMANT DE SEMILLY) was once again on the podium, this time in second. Both third and fourth places were taken by Julia Correa riding EVANE (x NUMERO UNO) and CLINTEN resp’.
Marta Macías and RAID BOY II took the top spot in the 1.10m repeating their win from the first week. Second was Sandra Gil with MARQUESA and third was Juan Miguel Febrer with GRANTENDER (GRANDINO x CONTINUE) who finally got on to the podium after being very close a few times!
