First Spanish victory in Casas Novas

With a very good assistance in the stands of the equestrian center, the Spanish rider Alberto Márquez Galobardes take the victory in the second competition of the CSI2*, the Marqués de Riscal Trophy. It was the first triumph in the weekend of a local rider.

The rider left at the end of the competition but was very focused and talented to score a time of 27,89 sec with Volt de Kergane. Márquez was very happy for his victory and said “I did my best and I could beat Leopoldo”. The horseman had hope to make a good Gran Prix and start her first Casas Novas winter edition with a great victory. The rider from Aranjuez did a few weeks ago a good performance at the Madrid Horse Week, previous stage of the World Cup.

He was accompanied on the podium by Leonardo Medal García, who stopped the clock at 27.97 sec. Medal is also a horse breeder and her horse, Rey de Gozón, is doing a great year with several victories. The third was Ignace Philips, with 28.02 seconds riding Izmir van de Baeyenne.

The test began at 2.30 pm and it was attended by more than forty riders under the scale two phases both against the clock and obstacles of 1,40 m.

In the afternoon, at 5.15 hours, the CSI 5 * will start with the NH Collection Trophy.
