Patrice Delaveau makes it two-in-a-row

04 10 2015

Patrice Delaveau (FRA) went all in and took the two CSI5* wins at the Longines Masters of Los Angeles on Saturday. His finesse and skill resulted in the fastest times in both his earlier win in the $34,000 Prix Emirates CSI5* and with his win in the $130,000 Gucci Gold Cup CSI5* to launch the most glamorous evening of showjumping in North America.

Riding 14-year-old Holsteiner stallion Carinjo HDC (Cascavelle x Landgraf), Delaveau was the first clear round to make it into the second round. Six out of the first ten in the first round’s order of go knocked down the rail at the eleventh jump in the twelve-obstacle course designed by Luc Musette (BEL), warning the later riders to protect the approach to the penultimate fence.

At the first round’s end, seventeen clear rounds were invited to return for the second round. A new 1.60-meter course was set, and the riders walked the course before riding in a new order. Kirsten Coe (USA) was the first to attempt the condensed design and recorded an early clear, but her time of 39.69 seconds couldn’t hold the lead.

Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS), Christian Ahlmann (GER), Francesco Franco (ITA), Jack Towell (USA), and Quentin Judge (USA) also recorded double clears, but the battle for first and second boiled down to the Frenchman and America’s McLain Ward.
