CSI 4*

Francisco José Mesquita Musa & Carte de Blue PS Marathon Run Towards the Gold in €26,800 Speed Challenge CSI 4*

Arezzo, Italy – April 08, 2022 – After winning the €52,100 Goldspan Grand Prix CSI 3* almost two weeks ago, Francisco Musa (BRA) and Carte de Blue PS Marathon were back in the winners circle at the 2022 edition of the Toscana Tour. The dynamic duo teamed up for top honors in the €26,800 Speed Challenge CSI 4* last Friday during the third week of the illustrious Italian event at the Arezzo Equestrian Centre.

Riding the 2012 chestnut Oldenburg gelding (Cartoon 21 x Chacco-Blue), Musa put on another masterful performance blazing towards a penalty-free effort in 65.58 seconds.

2) Joseph Stockdale (GBR) and Equine America Cacharel matched the winner’s clean scored but in 66.04 seconds, a mark that would be more than good enough for silver honors.

The host nation was also represented on the podium, this time by Antonio Campanelli (ITA), who rode Cornet Rouge across the finish line 68.52 seconds, rounding out the top three.

3) Antonio Campanelli (ITA) & Cornet Rouge – 0 / 68.52
