Blom Cup: 45 six-year-olds clear second round
In the sand arena of Tops International Arena, the six-year-old jumper horses have just completed their second round in the semi-final of the Blom Cup. Nearly half of the entry list remained clear, including three KWPN-approved stallions.
Yesterday, 56 combinations put a 0-penalty result on the scoreboard, while today that was the case for 45 duos. The 40 best combinations, computed over two days, qualify for tomorrow’s finals; the other contestants may come back for the small finals.
Among the double clear performances we find the KWPN-approved stallions Lambada Shake AG (Aganix du Seigneur out of Grappa AG by Spartacus, bred by Alex Gisbertz) and Lambrusco (Entertainer out of Total Touch stb-ext pref prest by Lux, bred by Pieter Keunen), both ridden by Pieter Keunen, as well as Lay Out (Verdi out of Vallei Roos elite prest PROK by Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve, bred by J.J. Ilbrink and J.H. Ilbrink-Lueks of Geesteren) with Kristian Houwen. This result ensures them a spot in tomorrow’s final.
