Julien Epaillard & Usual Suspect Jump to Victory in €25,400 Hubside Special Two-Phase Challenge CSI 5*

Grimaud, France – September 17, 2020 –Julien Epaillard (FRA) and Usual Suspect d’Auge were the winners of the €25,400 Hubside Special Two-Phase Challenge CSI 5* yesterday on the opening day of the second week of the Hubside Jumping Fall Tour.

The speedy Frenchman rode the 12-year-old Selle Français gelding (Jarnac x Papillon Rouge) to victory by completing and advancing the second phase of the 1.45m challenge without having any penalties attributed to them, stopping the final timers in 30.63 seconds.

Scott Brash (GBR) and Hello Franklin (Billy Mexico x Goodtimes) also completed both sections of the contest flawlessly, going through the final timers in 31.07 seconds.

Jérôme Guery (BEL) and Great Britain V (Nabab de Reve x Carolus II) completed the podium after a penalty-free performance right to the end, being timed in 31.44 seconds.

Winner’s Circle – Julien Epaillard (FRA)

Usual Suspect d’Auge is a naturally fast horse which usually helps me in this type of event. Today, before entering the track, I saw that Scott Brash (GBR) had been forced to take seven strides in the last row. It seemed to me that this was the place where I could save time compared to him. So I tried to get a good distance on the second to last so I could go on the last one in six strides and it paid off. This weekend, I have five horses with me, Quincy Lady and Lima de Muze in the CSI 2 * and in the CSI 5* Usual Suspect d’Auge, Safari d’Auge and Queeleta, who will normally do the Grand Prix on Sunday .

Les Impressions de Julien Epaillard (FRA)

Usual Suspect d’Auge est un cheval naturellement rapide ce qui m’aide bien dans ce type d’épreuve habituellement. Aujourd’hui, avant d’entrer en piste, j’avais vu que Scott Brash (GBR) avait été obligé de faire sept foulées dans la dernière ligne. Il me semblait que c’était l’endroit où je pouvais gagner du temps par rapport à lui. J’ai donc essayé d’avoir une bonne distance sur l’avant-dernier pour pouvoir aller sur le dernier en six foulées et ça a payé. Ce week-end j’ai cinq chevaux avec moi, Quincy Lady et Lima de Muze dans le CSI 2* et dans le CSI 5* Usual Suspect d’Auge, Safari d’Auge et Queeleta, qui normalement fera le Grand Prix de dimanche.
