The Longines China Tour Final came to an end last Sunday hosting its main class, the CNY $60,000 Longines Grand Prix CSI 3* in Guangzhou, China.

Thirty-eight combinations faced the 1.50m first round course with only five of them advancing to the jump-off. Olivier Guillon (FRA) and Cognac du Vlist Z (Calvino Z x Calypso) were the winners, claiming the victory by posting their second penalty-free peformance, stopping the timers in 36.68 seconds.

Tongyang Liu (CHN) and Yu Long Qi Ji (Cachas x Carry) gave the home crowd something to cheer about, earning silver honors after matching the winners’ two fault-free runs, securing second place in 37.36 seconds.
