A great battle for the fastest clear round led to the outcome of the $35,000 Prix SFAM CSI 5* yesterday during the Jumping International de Valence CSI 5*/2* at the Haras des Grillons in France.

In the end, it was Irish Denis Lynch (IRL) who was victorious aboard RMF Fairview (Alimo x Tara Ni Quidam), an 11-year-old gelding owned by Rushy Marsh Farm. They were the only combination to manage a time under sixty seconds, going through the finish line in 58.83 seconds.

“It’s my first win with this new horse found in Australia, I’m thrilled about this victory. I started to show him in competition around May, we’re a new combination but he’s really willing to try and there is something very chemical between us. It’s a lovely victory for me and for Rushy Marsh, co-owner of the horse.”
