CSI 5*

Edward Levy & Vitôt du Château are the Conquerors of the Cordon Group Prize CSI 5* 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 on Friday during the Jumping International de Dinard CSI 5* & CSI 3*, allowing all the amateur and professional riders to express their full potential.

The faithful Dinard public, discouraged by yesterday’s rain, wouldn’t have missed their rendezvous with the great sport on this second day. After yesterday’s warm-up on the sand arena, the most experienced riders of this 2023 edition met for the first time in the  €26,200 Cordon Group Prize CSI 5* , designed on the grass arena by Jean François Morand (FRA), over 1.45m. Aim of the day, leave all the poles on the stands, and reduce the time as much as possible. In this skilfull game, among the 17 combinations who crossed the finish line without any penalty, the experienced Edward Levy (FRA) comes out first with his vibrant Vitôt du Château (Toulon x Kannan).

He claimed the win ahead of Julien Gonin (FRA), who appears to be in fine form for this 2023 edition, this time riding Valou du Lys, while Belgian Gilles Thomas (BEL) and Feromas Van Beek Z completed the podium.
