San Patrignon

San Patrignano CSI-A (ITA)

Equestrian sport against drugs and social outcasting

The prize AON goes to Mathy

winning at San Patrignano has become an habit to the Belgian rider Francois Mathy: he took the Infostrada prize in 2000, the grande Chasse in 2001 and even this year he didn' delude the fans' expectations, by gainig the AON prize, opening class of the closing day at the show-jumping dedicated to the memory of the community's founder, Vincenzo Muccioli
The competition, a class reserved for young horses, let in to the final jump-offs only 9 riders among 33 in the starting list. Aboard the bay Calmero Orion, Mathy was capable of carriying out a very fast second manche with a clear round which led him to score a time of 40.77. A performance which proved unreachable for everybody else and left behind pair as outstanding as Engmann-Cobold, van Dijk-Sonates, Lansink-Pilgrim Z and Melliger-Liquido. First of the Italians came the young "azzurro" Giuseppe Rolli on Nearco, who due to a fault in the jump-offs slipped back to the competition eigth place
