Guerdat gallops into the lead in opening competition

IMG_9591World No. 1, Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat (36), scorched home with Alamo to win the opening competition at the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ 2019 Final at the Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg (SWE) this evening. Third-last to go of  the 33 starters, the 2012 Olympic champion broke the stranglehold established by Belgium’s Pieter Devos (Apart), Olivier Philippaerts (H&M Legend of Love) and Francois Mathy Jr (Casanova de L’Herse) who had to settle for second, third and fourth places.

Guerdat previously claimed back-to-back FEI Jumping World Cup™ titles in 2015 and 2016.
