Prix Sct. Georg victory for President´s First Apple and Patrick van der Meer this morning. The just 7 yr old stallion by Vivaldi/Partout is of course still lacking some more strength, and for the canter tour he seems to lack more natural go and forward search, as both pirouettes becomes bit hind the riders aides and Patrick has to encourage him a lot to stay in front of his aides for the series. Nice trot tour and today´s best walk tour.
Placed 2nd was Danielle Heijkoop with the lovely 9 yr old long legged mare Daula by Gribaldi/Michelanglo. Top expression and suppleness for the trot tour in a lovely light frame and good walk. The canter tour still lacking bit more relaxation and volumes, but for sure an exciting combination for the future.
No 3 became Kastar Hof Ter Zeedycke d'12 with Jorinde Verwimp. Might be the worst name for horse for a journalist or a speaker to pronounce 😁. Jorinde brings some valuable experience and shows a nice balanced trot tour with good power and flow, bit tense walk tour. The canter quality is good, for both pirouettes they become with a bit to much sit and Kastar becomes a bit hind the riders aides. Nice quality of the series.
