Martin Fuchs (SUI) & Clooney won the CHF $100,000 Longines Grand Prix CSI 5* yesterday during the Mercedes-Benz CSI Zürich 5* in Switzerland.

After a win in the Top 40 Prize 4 hours earlier, followed by a fourth place in the Mercedes-Benz Jump & Drive in previous class, the Swiss entered the ring aboard Clooney 51 (Cornet Obolensky x Ferragamo) and produced two other fault-free rounds.
