Sergio Alvarez Moya and Arrayan won the Grand Prix de la Ville de Versailles
Very thrilling the two round of the 1.55 competition on saturday evening in CSI5* in Versailles
Spanish rider Sergio Alvarez Moya, after the brilliant victory in CSI5* Wellington Grand Prix with Charmeur and the fifth place in World Cup Final with Arrayan, dominated the Grand Prix de la Ville de Versalilles, a 155 competition with jump off. Last to start on 38 competitors, among the best pairs of the great international circuits, and 12 in the jump off, he left behind the Netherland Harrie Smolders with Emerald, improving their time by two seconds exactly, and Italian Alberto Zorzi with Rackam’jo.
Chef de piste, Italian Uliano Vezzani, realized a very technical first round in the wonderful but not easy arena in front of Grande Ecurie Du Chateau de Versailles. “Indeed Arrayan was great, wasn’t he? I was lucky! All my turns were right and kept me going fast. And there are moments when you need a bit of luck.
All my distances were right, I just had to give it all. His style? It’s just how he jumps, but he only doesn’t want to make a fault and do his best. Anyway, it’s amazing to win here, this place if fantastic”, said smiling Moya speaking about his top horse and his performance.
