Matthew Sampson kicks off the second week of the Autumn Tour with another win!

Matthew Sampson kicks off the second week of the Autumn Tour with another win!

The British rider repeated his result from last Thursday on the Balou de Rouet, 7yr old,  Jafabalou.



The second week of competition here at the Autumn Sunshine Tour started off today and continues until Sunday.  Today around 50 Young Horses took to the Milton arena in their age classes.  Matthew Sampson was the winner of the two phase, 7yr old class with Jafabalou, repeating their win from last Thursday.  The horse is owned by Rachael Evison and is by Balou de Rouet, from the famous stallion Baloubet du Rouet, three time World Cup winner and Olympic gold medalist, ridden by Rodrigo Pessoa.


Second place in the 1.35m class was also taken by a British rider Charlie Jones riding Vins Vd Tojopehoeve Z by Vagrant Z, a combination that was also in the rosettes last week.  In third was Laura Kraut riding Diadem du Thot (L’Arc de Triomphe*Bois Margot from a Quick Star mare).


9 horses went clear in the 6yr old class and 8 in the 5yr olds.


Tomorrow we continue with the Young Horse Classes and the CSI3* Tour classes.  There are more riders arriving, including the utter legend John Whitaker, who returns to see the improvements and the expansion of the arenas and new facilities here at Montenmediio and, hopefully, to repeat a few of his many wins here in Vejer.

The International Irish riders Michael Pender and Joane Sloan-Allen are here as well as the Egyptian rider Sameh El Dahan.  Spanish riders that will be participating include Iván Serrano, Jesús Garmendia and Sergio Álvarez Moya.  The chief course designer will be International 4*, Javier Trenor, who will design all the courses held on grass in the main, David Broome arena.  Marcos Núñez stays with us designing the courses in the Milton arena.  This week builds up to a climax with the Sunday Grand Prix class which is a qualifier for the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo and a Longines Ranking class.
