Canadian rider Tiffany Foster opened the party and became the queen of the Stephex Masters in the CSI3* Brussels week, dominating the class in her jump-off round.
Taking a time of 33.72 seconds with her 11-year-old gelding Brighton (Contendro II x Quick Star), Tiffany Foster secured 50 World Ranking Points with her victory and outperformed home rider Yves Vanderhasselt.
Being a difficult year to take victories for the Canadian, Tiffany Foster chose to participate for the CSI3* week instead of the CSI5*, getting from the first class dispute the highest honors with a very wide advantage, after Yves Vanderhasselt with his 8-year-old mare Jeunesse (Eldorado van de Zeshoek x Quasimodo Vd Molendreef) did it in 37.92 seconds.
For third place the German rider Katherina Offel finished in 38.01 seconds with the 10-year-old stallion Jk Horsetrucks Leasure Z (Levisto Z x Treasure Z), followed in fourth place by Rik Hemeryck of Belgium next to the 9-year-old gelding Bretling du Paradis Z (Bamako de Muze x Vigo d’Arsouilles) in 38.34 seconds and fifth place for French amazon Marie Hecart accompanied by the 9-year-old gelding Irco Van Klapscheut (Radco d’Houtveld x Thunder van de Zuuthoeve) in 41.60 seconds.
For the Latino Ranking Brazilian Joao Victor Castro took 12th place with the 11-year-old gelding Quentin PJ (Quidam de Revel x Escudo 19), with the fastest 4-foul regular round in 66.13 seconds and adding World ranking Points. Out of the points were the Brazilian Joao Eduardo Ferreira de Carvalho along with the 9-year-old gelding Andreas Spb Z (Air Jordan Z x Lan Daris) in the 27th place with 8 fouls and Colombian rider Mauricio Ruiz accumulated 12 fouls with the 9-year-old gelding Noble Calippo (Empire x Fortus Hästak) in box 35th.
