Fernando Martinez Sommer (MEX) & Cor Bakker won the Banorte Grand Prix last Sunday during the México CSI 4* at the Club Hípico Coapexpan in Xalapa, Veracruz, México.
The Mexican and the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Colandro x Quattro) were victorious by being the only combination that overcame all the obstacles on the 1.50m course, crossing the finish line with no penalties in 34.30 seconds.

Juan Manuel Luzardo Rodriguez (URU) & Stan (Stakkato x Sacramento Son) were faster by stopping the timers in 32.76 seconds but one rail down in the jump-off meant that they had to settle for second place.
Antonio Maurer Rios (MEX) & Galileo de Laubry (Cardento I x Askan de Lauzelle) completed the podium with four penalty-points and a time of 35.27 seconds during the tiebreaker.
Podium: Juan Manuel Luzardo (URU), Fernando Martinez Sommer (MEX) and Antonio Maurer Rios (MEX).
