David Simpson and Foudre F (Namelus R x Cavalier) won the Grand Prix at the CSIO3* Prague. The 11-year-old KWPN mare remained double clear in the two phase course over 1,50m under the saddle of David Simpson. With 51,75 seconds on the clock, they beat all comers. With his victory, Simpson took home the first prize of €12,775. In the second phase, in which fifteen combinations lined up at the start, only two finished clear. Apart from the Irish winner, Philip Houston also managed to do so. The German came home in 52,15 seconds for his ride with Sandros S Bella (Sandro Boy x Chacco Blue) bred by Paul Schockemöhle. That earned him second place. The number three in the Grand Prix, like the number two, comes from Schockemöhle breeding. This Chilensky (Chintan x Cornet Obolensky), owned by the Japan Equestrian Federation and Schockemöhle with Koki Saito (JPN), jumped a clear second phase, but got one time penalty.
