Valence, France – November 26, 2021 – The second day of competition under the large arena of Haras des Grillons de Ratières, in Drôme (France), took place on Friday and the feature class of the day during this first edition of the Hubside Jumping Winter Tour. Just as yesterday, the flagship rider of the French team climbed onto the top of the podium and again with Ilex VP. The Frenchman and the 2008 black Belgian Warmblood gelding (Diamant de Semilly x Darco) were both precise and fast, overcoming sixteen other combinations and all the 1.50m obstacles while still registering the fastest time of 42.06 seconds for the victory.
Wilm Vermeir (BEL) and Joyride S (Toulon x Pachat II) were very close to the eventual winners, finishing second only due to their final time of 42.58 seconds.
The third spot on the podium was claimed by José María Larocca (ARG), who guided Finn Lente (Gaillard de La Pomme x Colandro) flawlessly across the finish line in 42.90 seconds.
