Harry Allen (IRL) and Cheese W Z won the €26,000 Flanders Foal Auction Prize CSI 2* today at Sentower Park in Opglabbeek, Belgium.
The seventeen-year-old Irish phenom once again showed his exceptional talent, riding Ballywater Farms’ 10-year-old Zangersheide gelding (Chatman x Galoubet A) flawlessly to his first ever Longines Ranking class victory.
The duo overcame all the 1.45m obstacles encountered throughout their two performances and 97 other combinations, stopping the timers in 41.02 seconds during the 24-horse jump-off for the victory.
Second place was claimed by Frank Schuttert (NED) & Blink Date 31 (Sandro Boy x Concept 2) backed by a penalty-free jump-off performance in 41.57 seconds.
Alberto Zorzi (ITA) & Viceversa de La Roque (Kannan x Diamant de Semilly) also registered a clean scorecard, rounding out the top three in 42.08 seconds.
