Lausanne, Switzerland – June 21, 2019 – Thursday’s only Masters One event saw a full card with 86 horses set to compete with their five-star pilots. Among them, 21 horses soared over the technically challenging track without fault. It was international podium veterans, Emanuele Gaudiano (ITA) and Carlotta 232, who were able to seize the first victory of the Masters One at 1.45m.
“Carlotta is really a very fast mare. She has won more than 60 international events! Today was very good, we have a special arena but she didn’t care about that, she jumped very good. She’s very hot, full of blood and she fights for everything. It’s a very, very nice show.”
The Italian and the 10-year-old dark bay Oldenburg mare (Chaccomo x Cento) secured his place with a blistering time of 55.30 seconds, nearly two seconds ahead of young Frenchmen, Edward Levy (FRA), who was aboard the dependable Starlette de la Roque, (Jumpy des Fontaines x Kannan), registering a time of 57.28 seconds.
