Hold Their Own In Opening Salvo Of Show Jumping
riders had two clear rounds in the opening class of the World Equestrian
Games show jumping at Jerez, Spain, today (Wednesday).
Prix Jerez was a Table C speed class, with fences lowered incurring
time faults that are added to the total, instead of normal faults.
Peter Charles on Corrada and Kevin Babington on Carling King managed
clears, and ended 11th and 12th respectively.
both Dermott Lennon on Liscalgot and Cian O'Connor on Waterford
Crystal each had a fence on the floor, and ended in 26th and 34th
place respectively, out of a field of 96 starters.
points accumulated from today's class are carried forward to the
next major class, the Nations Cup, and points won there will decide
the Top 25 riders, and, ultimately, the Top 4, who will battle it
out for individual medal position on Sunday.
speed class was won by Switzerland's Markus Fuchs, on Tinka's Boy.
