Saudi victory in the main class of the first day of the Morocco Royal Tour 2019
Kick off today in the magnificent facilities of the Royal Moroccan Federation of Equestrian Sports (FRMSE) of the second stage of the Morocco Royal Tour. A week after Tetouan and a week before El Jadida, it is Rabat's turn to receive the world's elite jumping competitors: 25 nations from five continents.
Many starters in every class, especially in the most important of the day. In fact, 121 combinations were at the start of the Prix CNOM, a 1m45 class qualifying for the World Cup qualifier on Friday, the Prix SAR Princess Lalla Amina where only half of the competitors of the day (66 exactly) will be able to participate. A serious "skimming". For long hours, Canadian rider Tiffany Foster led the competition. But it was written that the last ones would be first. Indeed, penultimate at the start, the Saudi Ramzy Al Duhami with his very fast High Quality J, chased from the first step of the podium the blonde Canadian: "First of all, I am really very grateful to participate in this contest , said the Saudi. I'm really happy with my horse as always. It is a horse that always goes very fast and if I ride him well, we normally easily win this kind of class".
The other winners of the day were Moroccan (Walid Redouane and Altesse des Ailes, CSI 1 * 1m20), Italian (Emanuele Gaudiano and Calgary 87, CSI 1 * 1m30) and Belgian (José Thiry and Fire, CSI 4 * at 1m35).
