Mariel Victoria Aguirre continues to triumph at Casas Novas winning the Eroski Center Trophy

The day began in Casas Novas with 29 riders disputing the Eroski Center Trophy in the arena of the International Jumping Show. The start list has a huge Spanish presence, with up to twenty national riders, but the victory goes to Mexico.

It was Mariel Victoria Aguirre who did the best time without penalties, 28.72 seconds, on the back of Taormina. Eutimio García, from Eroski, gave the winner the Trophy. The Mexican is making a great weekend, with two victories and a third place.

The horsewoman said that “I don’t expect to win or get so many good results, but my mare is so fast and, if she had no penalties, she always finishes in the top positions. It is perfect to end the year winning”. About the next competition which she is going to take part in Casas Novas, Tyco Gran Prix, the Mexican confirms that “I hope she also makes no penalties there and does well today”.  

The podium was completed by national riders, like young Diego Ramos Maneiro with Texas de Trebompe stopping the clock in 28.89 sec and Alberto Márquez Galobardes on the back of Ineta del Maset with 29.04 sec. Márquez Galobardes is also doing a great CSI with a victory on Friday at the Marqués de Riscal Trophy.

This test was the first of the closing day of the CSI and was held from 9:15am in the two phases with obstacles of 1.30 meters. The course put to the test the talent and focus of the participating pairs, several included refusals.
The next competition is the Prosegur Trophy at 11:30 am, the first round of the 5* day.
