BARCELONA — Just like in 2011, it is Brasil that colors the ‘Queen’s Cup’ in Barcelona, Spain. Again the same rider, however, a different horse this time. Doda de Miranda speeded to victory in the 1.50m class. From the 67 starters only 19 qualified for the jump-off.
It seemed like nobody could beat Henrik von Eckermann and Gotha Frh’s time of 42.27 seconds. However Brasilian Doda de Miranda and AD Nouvelle Europe Z (by Nelson Z) had no problem with it, finishing in 40.19 seconds. Stephex-rider, Daniel Deusser, and First Class Van Eeckelghem (by Balou du Rouet) came close. The German Champion set the time in 40.53 seconds, placing second.
Third place was for Henrik von Eckerman, followed by Christian Ahlmann and Raevnir. Janika Sprunger and Aris CMS completed the top five.
