Grimaud, France – October 06, 2022 – Good start for the Frenchman Marc Dilasser (FRA) who, at the controls of the young Chamann Has, ten years old, won the major event of the day of the Hubisde Jumping Grimaud-Golfe de Saint-Tropez CSI 5*.
For their first victory in a 5*, the Frenchman and the 2012 chestnut Selle Français gelding (Mylord Carthago*HN x Socrate de Chivre) teamed up for a flawless performance in 61.43 seconds in the 1.50m speed challenge.
They were ahead of the Colombian René Lopez Lizarazo (COL), in the saddle on Stalognia (Stakkatol x Chacco-Blue), who secured silver honors in 61.72 seconds.
Edward Levy (FRA) on Confidence d’Ass (Diamant de Semilly x Berlin), already authors of good performances during the last CSI 5* of Grimaud two weeks ago, completed the podium with no penalties in 62.13 seconds.
Winner’s Circle – Marc Dilasser (FRA)
“Chamann Has belongs to the Hasle family, which gave birth to him. He has had a superb year and finished in the major CSIO events in Calgary, Hickstead and Dublin. Today, he wins his first victory in a CSI 5*, having already allowed me to climb onto several podiums, but together, today we signed our first first place in a 5*. It is a great satisfaction as the field of the Hubside Jumping is incredible. Chamann is ten years old and had already placed last year in a good event in Aachen: he is in the process of hardening up and we believe in him a lot. There is no commercial objective for Chamann: it is a passionate choice of the Hasle family to keep him and to try to go as far as possible, for the love of horses and sport. At 1.60m, we can estimate that it is promising. He is naturally very competitive and is the choice in my string. He will jump the Grand Prix on Saturday, at the Hubside Jumping Grimaud-Golfe de Saint-Tropez.”
