Sopot, Poland – June 17, 2021 – The first day of the Sopot Horse Show CSIO 5* came to an end yesterday and there was an unfamiliar result in the feature class of the day, the Saur Neptun Gdańsk Prize under the patronage of Świat Koni. Jarosław Skrzyczyński (POL) with Jerico and Alexander Butler (IRL) and Pico shared the victory in the 1.50m speed challenge, both combinations completing the course in 64.92 seconds.
The final result was even more unusual because Julien Anquetin (FRA) and Z Ice Cube Z (Wieland x Ever for Pleasure) were as close as it gets to the eventual winners, being only one-hundredth of a second slower to secure bronze honors.
