The first CSI5* class of this VI edition of IFEMA MADRID HORSE WEEK had an international podium, in which Luca Maria Moneta has been crowned as the winner. The Italian that everyone knows as “The Carrot Man” has made a spectacular journey riding Amethyse du Coty, in a time of 55.83 seconds.
Closely followed by the Swiss Pius Schwizer with Balou Rubin R, who did not reach the Italian time by just 6 cents.
Third was the Belgian François Mathy Jr, who made a very clean course with Casanova de l’Herse in a time of 56.14 seconds.
The public was lamenting with Emanuele Gaudiano, the winner of this same event in the previous edition, when his mare Carlotta knocked down the last obstacle, taking the Italian completely away from the podium. Emanuele stopped the clock in a time of 52.50 seconds, that nobody has been able to beat.
At 19:30 the CSI5 *-W University Alfonso X El Sabio will begin, the qualifying class for the Longines FEI World Cup™.
