Last weekend the former Prinsjesdag-foals Arc de Triomphe, Gigolo III and Costa Date achieved some wonderful placings at international level. Ridden by Frank Schuttert, Arc de Triomphe (Triomphe de Muze x Calvados) showed off his qualities at the Tops International Arena in Valkenswaard, while Gigolo III (Cassini II x Chin Chin) ridden by Rachel Sandoz and Costa Date (Vingino x Quidam de Revel) ridden by Hannah Selleck competed at Knokke Hippique.
Frank Schuttert and Arc de Triomphe concluded their weekend in Valkenswaard with a well-deserved 4th place in the U25 1.40m class on Sunday. Switzerland’s Rachel Sandoz finished in 4th position with Gigolo III in the CSI2* 1.45m ladies only competition at Knokke Hippique.
USA’s Hannah Selleck secured a victory aboard Costa Date in Knokke. Selleck took over the reins of the 9-year-old from Mexico’s Juan Pablo Gaspar Albañez only weeks ago, but immediately took home the victory in the CSI2* 1.45m competition.
