Ireland’s Darragh Kenny was thrilled with his first big CSI5* Longines Global Champions Tour win of his career this afternoon as he took first place in the Prix French Tour with Piccolo in a time of 67.43s. Second place went to Luca Maria Moneta (ITA) and Connery in 68.71s, and third to Jane Richard Philips (SUI) with Dieudonne de Guldenboom – her second 3rd place of the day!

The speed class saw 45 starters around Uliano Vezzani’s track and nine clear rounds. The French put in a strong performance with three riders in the top seven, which bodes well for a great home performance in tomorrow’s Grand Prix. Watch the Longines Global Champions Tour of Chantilly Grand Prix live on GCT TV, Equidia Life, Horse&Country TV and Class Horse TV tomorrow from 4pm CEST and see the highlights tomorrow evening on Eurosport from 9pm CEST.
