The Italian Emanuele Gaudiano, at the controls of Carlotta 232, wins in the major event of the CSI 4* of the HUBSIDE FALL TOUR. He is ahead of the Briton Guy Williams, in the saddle on Rouge de Ravel. Best French rider Titouan Shumacher is third, associated with Atom Z. Note: the second round of the CSI 4* goes to Habs François-Xavier Boudant with Alabama Bo Regard.
“I’m delighted with what Carlotta provided. We left the last HUBSIDE JUMPING two weeks ago with a win, and we’re starting this new week of competition with another win! I plan to stay at Grimaud the next three weeks. My three leading horses are here. This week Chalou will take part in a race tomorrow and in the Grand Prix on Sunday. I think he will jump two courses each week. As for Carlotta, what can I say? She is exceptional. I think this victory is her 80th international victory in six years! She is not a suitable mare for big Grands Prix, but she is very fast, and suitable for speed events. She has already won indoor derbies, as in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, three times; she has also won twice in the Speed Challenge of the Longines Masters, once in Los Angeles, another time in Paris, and has won numerous proofs on 145cm. I’m not sure if I’ll take it out on a course this week: three weeks is a long time, and I’ll see if I take it out on Saturday or next week.”
