Jarvenpaa, Finland – March 31, 2019 – Rein Pill (EST) and Alfons RA won the €25,000 Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix CSI 2* yesterday during the Mercedes-Benz Aino Masters in Jarvenpaa, Finland.

The Estonian and the 12-year-old bay Estonian Sport Horse gelding (Aromats x False Pass) triumphed in the 1.45m two-round contest by the faster of only two combinations that registered two penalty-free rounds, completing their second performance in 49.31 seconds.

Paul-Richard Argus (EST) and Renessin (Laurissin – Irene II) earned silver honors backed by a conservative approach in round 2, posting a flawless performance in 58.44 seconds.

Emma Tallberg (FIN) and Arven (Aragorn W x Epilot) had the second fastest time among all the four finalists, but their time of 49.40 seconds came at the expense of one rail down, meaning that they would have to settle for third place.
