Melia de Regor
It is common practice for us to report in this weekly overview the great performances of the Elvis Ter Putte progeny that are on the verge of a breakthrough here and there. That is also the case in this week's overview.
Take Melia de Regor (ds. Cento) for example, who won the final for seven-year-olds in Bonheiden, after already taking third place in one of the qualifiers, both times ridden by Gregory Wathelet. Earlier this year, Melia also won several classes at the Sunshine Tour.
Same story for the also seven-year-old Hello Zachary (ex-Markies van de Donkhoeve, ds. Lord Z). Ridden by famous rider Scott Brash, Zachary impressed with a second place in one of the qualifiers and a sixth place in the finals in Italian Gorla Minore.
Gerard van den Katten Eeck (ds. Lys de Darmen) scored an excellent fifth place in a class for seven-year-olds in Kronenberg, ridden by Alistair Hippisley Gatherum. Nike Prova (ds. Clintissimo Z) and Tim Prouvé performed well in the classes for six-year-olds in Sevilla, as did Obi-Wan (ds. Querlybet Hero) in the classes for five-year-olds in Spanish Oliva (Jennifer-Lisa Wernke).
Iphigeneia de Muze (s. Erco van ‘t Roosakker) became second in the GP of Bonheiden with Gregory Wathelet, with Kelly Vandousselaere and Just Energie (s. Nabab de Rêve) finishing tenth in the same class. The same result was achieved by Robin Muhr on Vino Z (s. Vigo d’Arsouilles) in the GP of Cagnes-sur-Mer. Triomphe de Muze sired Cendy VDP (Oda Charlotte Lyngvaer), the number six of the Kronenberg GP and in the GP of Oliva, there was a seventh place for Kathrin Müller on Felitia DH (s. Querlybet Hero). Finally, Iceman de Muze (s. Erco van ‘t Roosakker) became seventh in the final GP2* of the Wellington Equestrian Festival, ridden by Schuyler Riley.
Once more, a lot of excellent performances could be registered at the 1.40m-level. In Arezzo, there was a fifth place for Netuno vd Wolfsakker Z (s. Nabab de Rêve) and Giampiero Garofalo. Eugenio Grimaldi and Minerva G.I.H. Z (s. Malito de Rêve) even bettered that performance by finishing second in another 1.40m-class.
Christopher Smith and Coriander van ‘t Vennehof (s. Triomphe de Muze) equaled the latter achievement by becoming second in Bonheiden, while Wilm Vermeir on Gentiane de la Pomme (s. Shindler de Muze) won a 1.40m-class in Kronenberg. Lastly, Rob Eras and James de Muze (s. Nabab de Rêve) achieved a fifth place in Oliva.
Yet another victory was gathered by Gotham City PL (s. Filou de Muze) and Omer Karaevli, this time in a class for seven-year-olds in Gorla Minore. In the same age category, there was a fourth place for Alexander Butler on Gaston d’Ecaussinnes (s. Malito de Rêve) in Kronenberg. An equal result was achieved by Daan Van Geel on Hulde G (s. Vigo d’Arsouilles) in Oliva and in Valencia, there was a victory for Jotage B (s. Denzel van het Meulenhof, Matthias Mock) in a class for five-year-olds. Otto vd Bisschop (s. El Torreo de Muze) finally, also scored some clear rounds under his new rider Christoffer Lindenberg in the classes for five-year-olds in Oliva.
Loukas de la Noue (s. Malito de Rêve) completes our weekly overview. The only eight-year-old Loukas finished third in a 1.45m-class in Kronenberg with Irish rider Cameron Hanley.
