It was Brazil´s Doda de Miranda that took the win in the CSI3* Grand Prix in Samorin on Sunday, riding AD Nouvelle Europe Z (Nelson Z x Jimtown). Only four riders managed to produce a clear round in this 1.50 Diamond Tour Grand Prix class, to move on to the jump-off.
Doda was first to go against the clock, and put pressure on the three riders to come with another clear and fast round. None of those to come could match his performance; Russia´s Maria Madenova had the penultimate vertical down on Kleiner Onkel (Heartbreaker x Corrado I), Belgium´s Fabienne Daigneux-Lange had the final over down on Venuee d´Fees des Hazalles (President x Alcatraz) while Netherland´s Amber Fijen and Brilljant (Chacco-Blue x Voltaire) had to see the wall fall to the ground. Daigneux-Lange claimed second, Madenova third and Fijen fourth.
