Grimaud, France – April 29, 2023 – Déjà Vu!

After winning the  €26,200 Hubside Jump-off Challenge CSI 3* with GFE Candy de Nantuel the previous day, the outstanding French rider was back on top, this time teaming up with Fantantastic de La Roque Z for top honors in the €26,200 Hubside Jump-off Challenge CSI 3*.
