Saint Lô, France – October 21, 2022 – After winning the €25,500 Prix France Etalons CSI 4* the day before and for the second day in a row, Julien Epaillard (FRA) and Caracole de La Roque once again stole the spotlight at the Jumping International Saint-Lô CSI 4*. Epaillard excelled in the €50,300 Prix Ville de St-Lô & Lô Agglo CSI 4*.
Epaillard was supreme aboard the 2012 bay Selle Français mare (Zandor Z x Kannan) conquered the most important class of the week, overpowering 7 other combinations in the jump-off of the 1.50m contest, doing so in flawless fashion in 34.56 seconds.
