With all eyes focused on the Verona Grand Rolex Prix FEI World Cup class, the Sunday, competition was fierce with all hoping to pick up the lion’s share of the €190,000 on offer. With a total of twelve combinations producing a clear in the first round the spectators saw some incredible competition in the jump-off with all vying for the lucrative first place. It was Spanish rider Sergio Alvarez-Moya however that secured the title with their double clear in a time of 43.20seconds with Zipper. Hot on their heels was Robert Smith with his own 10 year-old bay mare Voila IV taking 4th place who, although producing one of the only five double clears achieved, was just a few seconds behind in a time of 46.91 seconds.
Robert was also in the ribbons on the 12 year old grey Balourado whom he finished 5th on the 1.45m speed class.
