Grimaud, France – September 18, 2021 – It was a win for the host nation as Olivier Perreau (FRA) and GL Events Dolce Deceuninck powered and sped to victory last Saturday during the Hubside Jumping CSI 5* & 2*. The duo triumphed in the €30,000 Hubside Special Two-Phase Challenge CSI 5*
Riding the 2009 bay Belgian Sport Horse mare (Toulon x Cartier van de Heffinck), the Frenchman advanced to and completed the second section of the 1.45m track without having any penalties attributed to his scoredcard, when crossing the finish line in 32.36 seconds for the victory.
Less than two-tenths of a second separated the top two, with Brazil’s Pedro Veniss (BRA) and Balada de Coroles (Baloubet du Rouet x Coleur-Rubin) claiming second place in 32.55 seconds while another Frenchman rounded out the top three.
Edward Levy (FRA) rode Sirius Black (Calisco du Pitray x Laudanum) towards bronze honors, just two-hundredths of a second slower than the latter two.
