CSI 3*

Martin Fuchs & Viper Z Victorious in the €26,200 Defender Prize CSI 3* at Dinard

Dinard, France – July 28, 2023 – Thanks to much a more clement weather than the day before, and ideal temperatures for horses to exert themselves, the carefully concocted program for the Jumping International de Dinard CSI 5* & CSI 3* on Friday allowed all the amateur and professional riders to express their full potential.

The second target of the day for this label was to shine in the €26,200 Prix Defender CSI 3* on a course raised to 1.50m, to be completed as quickly as possible. The challenge was masterfully met by Swiss Martin Fuchs (SUI), winner of the Rolex Grand Prix 2022 with Leone Jei, who had saddled Viper Z for the occasion, and won by one second over Belgian Jérôme Guéry (BEL) and Enjoy d’Eole, while Nicolas Delmotte (FRA) and Baladin des Matis was the best of the four French riders in the standings.
