Paris, France – December 05, 2019 – The riders have taken their marks and the temperature of the track! Among the 74 starters, 19 combinations completed a clean performance all the way to the finish line without having any penalties attributed to them, all in pursuit of the lion’s share of the €26,000 Masters One Hubside Prize CSI 5*, the first class of the  Longines Masters in Paris CSI 5*/2*/1*. Marlon Modolo Zanotelli (BRA) and Sweet Tricia outperformed the rest of the field in 1.45m challenge.

Riding the 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare (Berlin x Tampa), the rider was the only one to complete his run under the symbolic 30-second mark, registering a flawless performance in 29.84 seconds.

Starting in number 45 of the event, Marlon Modolo Zanotelli (BRA) was never caught, a great first for the couple who was trained just a few weeks ago. “I could not dream of a better scenario to start the contest. I am particularly happy and proud of Sweet Tricia who had already won a lot under the saddle of her former rider, Irishman Darragh Kenny (IRL). It’s definitely a pleasure to ride such a mare, “said the two-time Pan-American Games gold medalist this summer. Installed in Belgium, the driver leaves for the occasion with the yellow and black Ducati Scrambler bike reserved for the winner.
