Home win, for Fernández Saro and ‘Jarlin de Torres’ who delight the crowds in the Small Grand Prix

Swiss rider, Steve Guerdat with ‘Double Jeu d’Honvault’ is second; British rider, Jane Annett is third with ‘Billy Tudor’ in this Longines Ranking class

The 1.45, Small GP Ranking class today was held in the David Broome arena. It was full of tension and exciting up to the very last moment. It had looked like Swiss, Steve Guerdat was going to be the winner of this class as he rode a super round on the agile stallion, ‘Double Jeu d’Honvault’ who is by ‘Kannan’ (x ‘Cook du Midour’), but it was not to be. Second last to go, Manuel Fernandez Saro, rode in a great forward rhythm around the jump off track, keeping the momentum through smart, tight turns and slipped into the lead, knocking more than a second off Guerdat’s time, much to the delight of the crowd in the stands. His long term partner, the 12 yr old gelding, ‘Jarlon de Torres’, ‘Jarnac’ x ‘Calvaro’, is owned by Yeguada Cortijo de Torres and has been with Manuel since 2018, and together they competed in the 2022 World Championship and also in two Nations Cups.


Today they stopped the clock in 40.07s, leaving Steve to take a well deserved second place in 41.14s with ‘Double Jeu D’Honvault’.


Third and fourth places were taken by British riders, Jane Annett with ‘Billy Tudor’ (‘Cevin Z’ x ‘Andiamo Z’) and Will Edwards with ‘SHW Candies B’ (‘Chacco-Blue’ x ‘Heartbreaker’). In fifth was the Irish rider, Jack Ryan with ‘Catch-Me Van Berkenbroeck’ (‘Cicero Van Paemel’ x ‘Nonstop’).

Siri has had a great set of results here so far and also won the Big Tour 1.35 class last week. Today she stopped the clock in this speed class in 64.97s, Over three seconds faster than Swedish rider, Sofía Westborg with ‘Astrid’s Lad’, whose time was 68.20s. In third was the Polish rider, Maksymilian Wechta with ‘Chepettano’ in 70.30s.


The biggest class today was the Medium Tour at 1.50m; this was also won by the very successful Spanish rider Kevin González de Zárate, who was also our winner here in the Ashford Farm Trophy class this week.  Today he was riding the 13yr old gelding, ’Favorito’, who is owned by Old Orchard Stables and is  by ‘Indoctro’,  dam sire. ‘Habsburg’. Swiss rider, Martin Fuchs was again on the podium, in second place, with the very consistent  ‘Che Tipa’ (‘Casero della Caccia’ x ‘Ogano Sitte’) and third, was top Brazilian rider Yuri Mansur with ‘Olisco P.’.


The Medium Tour 1.40 was won by Irish, Dermott Lennon with ‘MJM Pursuit’; second was Spanish, Julio Arias Cueva with ‘Never Alone’ and third was the Hungarian rider, Peter Szuhai with ‘Chacco’s Girlstar’.  In the 1.30, Will Edwards with ‘Magic Chanti’ was the winner, this British rider is rarely out of the top placings here.  In second, was another regular on the podium, Kendra Brinkop for Germany, with ‘Oak Grove’s Heartthrob’ and in third Polish rider, Maksymilian Wechta with ‘Clear One’.
