Ismael García Roque achieved this morning in Casas Novas a great victory in the big class of the CSI2*.
The Canarian, who jump twice between among the 34 pairs in the Engel & Völkers Trophy, sentenced the big class of today's CSI2 *. It was with his mare Airline R, with whom he risked enough to snatch victory from Paloma Jiménez-Carmona. The time of Ismael, 26.71 seconds, improved the 27.38 of the Andalusian rider and Sherie Star, who until the last moment seemed to be the winning pair. Both Ismael and Paloma come to make a great CSI Santander, so it was expected that they would arrive strong in A Coruña.
They were followed, on an entirely Spanish podium, by JoséFumero -also canary- and Vicomte de La Cour, recently acquired horse for the rider of Tenerife, who stayed only 3 hundredths of equaling the time of Paloma. The fourth place was also for García Roque, in this case with Iron Man.
With this trophy, the CSI2 * ends today and now it’s turn for the two 4 * events of the day: the Eurostars Trophy, and the Massimo Dutti Trophy,
It will be the turn to see international renowned riders in action, such as Sergio Álvarez Moya, Gerardo Menéndez, Paola Amilibia, Aldrick Cheronnet, Julien Epaillard, Eric van der Vleuten or Samantha McIntosh, for highlighting only a few. In addition, betting will be open, as always in Casas Novas, the benefits will go to the Economic Kitchen of A Coruña.
