Armando Trapote wins the second Qualifier in the ‘Absoluto (Absolute)Championship riding ‘Tornado VS

Tomorrow we will celebrate the Finals for the Young Horse 7 and 5yr olds, and the ‘Clásicos’ (Classics) set at 1.30m, 1.20m and1.10m

Another top winner today was Armando Trapote with the very athletic ‘Tornado VS’.  This pair had the best time in the second qualifying round of the Absolute Championship.  They stopped the clock in 74.37s beating Jesús Garmendia Echevarría with ‘Callias’ into second place. With this result Jesús just holds onto his lead in the overall championship results. Teresa Blázquez Abascal took third place today with ‘Nasa de Toxandra’ moving her up the board on the championship scoreboard. There were only seven riders finishing on zero today, over a track that was built by the designer Javier Trenor.


On the overall championship scoreboard, Armando Trapote sits just behind JesúsGarmendia, as both have zero points. With one fault, the reigning Spanish Absolute Champion, Ismael García Roque is hot on their heels, as is Santiago Núñez Riva.  With three faults Carmen García-Torres and Jesús Bamonde are also not far behind and all this points to it being a very exciting and competitive Final competition this Sunday.


In the second round of the Young Rider Championship there was also fierce competition today.  In the end the winner was Carolina Villanueva Suárez on ‘Levisto’, who were the only combination to jump clear in the time on the grass of the David Broome arena. In second was Pilar Mateos de Urbina with ‘Azure des Roches’ with 4 faults and Luis Ortiz Agüera with ‘Hvedholms Cashew’ who was third. Both of these latter riders were faster than the winner of this round but had four faults. As we factor in the new Championship regulations, these last two combinations and Diego Ramos Maneiro will be the three riders who pass on to the Final with zero points on the scoreboard.  However the results in this class are very close, with the other nine riders moving forward with 4 or less faults to the Final on Sunday, which will also be a closely contested event.


In the 1.40m Classic, Rubén Gómez Crespo with ‘Allblack de Gressoux’,was the winner in 77.52s. Adding this result to his second place in the first qualifier he goes into the Final in the top spot and the only rider to enter Sunday’s Final with zero faults. Three seconds behind the winner was Ismael García Roque with ‘Cocopelli B’ taking second in this qualifier and also in the overall championship ratings with 2 faults. Teresa Blázquez Abascal with ‘Bella PS’ were once again third today.


The winners of the height sections 1.30m, 1.20m and 1.10m in the Classic qualifiers were; Hugo Álvarez Amaro with ‘Olina Van de Looise Heide’; Irati Osoro Aldaz with ‘Cavici Z’ and Manuel Román Álvarez with ‘Grantender’. The Finals of these three Championships will be held tomorrow as well as that of the 5yr old Young Horses, all in the Milton arena.  Tomorrow the 7yr old Final will be in the David Broome arena on grass.


The Finals for the Albsolute, Young Riders and the Classic 1.40 Championships will be held on Sunday and promise to be the highlights of this week of jumping here at Montenmedio in the II Andalucía October Tour.  The Tour is sponsored by Consejería de Turismo, Cultura y Deporte, co-financed by the European Union.
