Young talent strikes in Opglabbeek!

The young Zangersheide horses had a good show in Sentower Park in Opglabbeek. In the final for the 7- and 8-year-old horses yesterday, no fewer than 6 managed to reach the top 10 of the ranking!

The best performance came from Abbie Sweetnam with Brown Star Z, a son of Big Star JR K Z out of a Numero Uno mother. After jumping a clear round on Thursday during the opening day, they jumped another clear round yesterday and became 2nd in a finish time of 33.90 seconds. Gilles Thomas followed in 4th place just outside the podium with Feromas Van Beek Z (Fantomas de Muze x Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve), while Virginie Thonon was 5th with Zirkana Adelheid Z (Zandor Z x Rival Z).

Alberto Zorzi finished on place 6 with Noblesse Vd Mespel Z (Nabab de Rêve x Escudo I), while Ellen Whitaker finished 7th with Emara Giguellerie Z (Elvis Ter Putte x Canturo) and Robinson Maupiler 10th with our Zandor Alpha Z (Zeus x Polydor).

Another striking name last weekend was that of Bellona Olympic Z, a daughter of Bonaparte Z out of a Champion du Lys mother. Under the saddle of Annika Axelsson, the breeding product of Tom Lemmens and Andreas, Christian Schou was placed 2 days with a 3rd place on Thursday and a 2nd place on Friday.

Finally, in the final for the 5-year-old horses there was a 5th place yesterday for Alexandra Somerville-Cotton with Amazing-K Van’t Kattenheye Z, a daughter of Arezzo VDL who was bred by Tony Raman and Annemarie Strobbe.
