Montefalco, Italy – May 06, 2022– Brazil continued to shine during the first week of the Sagrantino Tour CSI 4* at the Le Lame Horses Sporting Club , not only claiming another win having three combinations among the top five in the qualifier last Friday for Sunday’s grand prix. In the end, it was Bernardo Cardoso de Resende Alves (BRA) and Mosito van het Hellehof who prevailed, securing the win in the Pietro Coricelli Prize CSI 4*.
Eight out ouf the 51 combinations advanced to the jump-off of the 1.50m challenge but it was Bernardo and the 2012 bay Belgian Warmblood (Elvis Ter Putte x Nabab de Reve) who came out on top, doing so backed by a blazing second penalty-free effort, timed in 33.97 seconds.
No other combination matched nor came close to the winning mark. In fact, Piergiorgio Bucci (ITA) and Carpe Diem J&F Champblanc also left all the poles up for no penalties but their final time of 36.03 was over two seconds slower, still good enough for silver honors.
Brazil also earned bronze honors as Luiz Felipe Cortizo Goncalves De Azevedo Filho (BRA) guided Hermes van de Vrombautshoeve flawlessly across the finish line in 36.81 secconds.
