Daniel Bluman prevails over Lucy Deslauriers

Bromont, August 7, 2015 – Lucy Deslauriers looked to be on her way to a second win in the FEI Assante Open Jumper event tonight with Hester. However, Colombian rider Daniel Bluman stole the victory by a few tenths of a second with Conconcreto Believe, a nine-year old KWPN mare.

The initial course, designed by Anthony D’Ambrosio (USA) was comprised of 12 obstacles for 15 efforts: with its three double combinations and long lines, only eleven horse-rider pairs made it to the jump-off, including yesterday’s event winner, Lucy Deslauriers (USA) and Hester.

By a few tenths of a second

Not until the third pair on the course, Jill Henselwood (CAN) and Quidam Blue, for a clear round in the jump-off: time to beat thus established at 40.81 seconds. As for young Lucy Deslauriers (USA), fifth on course in this second round, she takes first place with Hester in an excellent time of 39.68 seconds. However, Colombian rider Daniel Bluman, with Conconcreto Believe will end up victorious, getting ahead of Lucy by 0.31 seconds in a clear jump-off round, mastering the course in this Assante qualifier event.

The park is outstanding

“The park is beautiful”, declared Daniel Bluman in an interview. In his first appearance at the Bromont show the rider was able to bask in the historical atmosphere of the Olympic site, and concluded:“It’s great to be here”.

It’s party time in Bromont

Quebec rider Mélissandre Lincourt celebrated her birthday in style with Just Stella L: with a clear jump-off round in 43.26 seconds she takes fifth place in the FEI Assante Open Jumper event. It is her best finish to date, and she adds “the mare was exceptional and I hope we can do the same on Sunday.”
