The winners of the weekend

04 November 2019

World Cup in Lexington 

On the American circuit, the young rider Brian Moggre made an impression when he won the Lexington World Cup at the age of just 18. The young American was paired with MTM Vivre le Rêve, who he has been riding since the stallion was seven years old. "I was 14 and he was seven, so we really grew up together. I jumped my first 5* this year and it was also his first 5*," said the winner. He was ahead of Karen Polle of Japan on Kinon, and David Blake of Ireland on Keoki. It was a quality line-up that included Rodrigo Pessoa, ranked with his new recruit Quality, and also Beat Mändli. The two-time European medalist pair Jos Verlooy and Igor picked up four points at the start, and Harrie Smolders, Ben Maher, Shane Sweetnam and Bertram Allen also all took part.

 In the league ranking, Brian Moggre is ranked second with 41 points, behind Beezie Madden.
