“Laura Power” was definitely an expression heard yesterday as Laura Renwick (GBR) and Laura Kraut (USA) claimed the top three spots in the €24,850 Longines Ranking Speed Class CSI 3* during the Vilamoura Champions Tour CSI 3* at the Vilamoura Equestrian Centre in Quarteira, Faro, Portugal.
Once again it was up to Bintang II to play the role of the hero as Laura Renwick took first place. The 12-year-old bay Dutch Warmblood gelding (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Orlando) did not disappoint, completing the 1.45m course flawlessly in 60.17 seconds for the victory.
Moreover, it was a one-two for Renwick as she guided Major Delacour (Ksar-Sitte x Leopard) around the track towards a penalty-free effort in 61.78 seconds.
Laura Kraut (USA) and Caelle (Clinton x Darco) secured the third spot on the podium with no penalties, going through the timers in 62.12 seconds.
