Hardelot: Regina 2nd in 1m50

CSI3* HARDELOT - Harrie Smolders

There were 106 starters in the 1m50 Grand Prix Qualifier on friday in Hardelot. Regina Z (f. Rex Z) was one of only 8 horses to go through to the jump-off. She finished in second place with a time of 68.45, Gregory Wathelet with Olympie Des Villas won the class with a slightly faster time of 67.89. In the Grand Prix of Hardelot on sunday afternoon, Regina was one of 13 horses to go through to the jump-off. She had a super fast time but just tipped the last jump out of the cup to give her 4 faults which put her down into 8th place.

Emerald (Diamant de Semilly x Carthago) was 4th in the final of the 7 year old horses. He jumped so impressive that the stewards insisted that Harrie changed his boots for the jump-off ! After jumping exactly the same in the jump-off they understood it had nothing to do with the boots, it was just his natural way of jumping.
