San Patrignon

San Patrignano CSI-A (ITA)

Equestrian sport against drugs and social outcasting

Unexpectedly the Lamoborghini prize goes to the Austrian Puck

The first competition day at San Patrignano 6th CSI-A closed with the an outsider's surprising success: at the jump-off of the Lamborghini prize - with fences of 1.50 - the austrian rider Gerfried Puck on his first horse Olympic 2, left behind the group of eight outstanding riders who had overcome the barrage. On the podium he preceded two notorious Dutch pairs: Piet Raymakers second on Schijndel and Eric van der Fluten third on Audi's Jikke.
Immediately after the first three came a group of outstanding riders - Johan Philippaerts, Hubert Bourdy, Ludo Philippaerts, Hendrik Anaconda, Ricardo Jurado, Jos Lansink and Michel Robert - just to prove once more the engagement whereby the top world athletes tackled San Patrignano's courses, from the very first day. An opening day, by the way, when the italian team itself had a word to say by achieving brilliant results with Gianni Govoni's second place in the class reserved for young horses and the first place in McDonald's prize which was won by Piergiorgio Bucci who took the liberty to leave the oustanding Swiss Markus Fuchs behind thus confirming the trust accorded to him by the italian coach Duccio Bartalucci.
The second day classes will start at 1700, first a class for young horses, followed by two very popular classes: the speed class "Acqua Uliveto" - a speed class with natural fences - end the tamoil prize, a two-phase-class with fences of 1.45.
