World No1 Scott Brash (GBR) edged closer to the championship lead tonight winning his third Grand Prix of the 2015 season riding the phenomenal Hello Sanctos.
Scott took the extraordinary triple win of the season under floodlights in the big grass arena in Cascais, Estoril, which delivered sporting drama as many of the top 30 riders retired or were eliminated in the €300,000 Grand Prix.
Speaking after his victory Scott said: “Sanctos loves Estoril. He jumped phenomenal again today. I am delighted with him but we still have to keep going to beat Luciana.”
Abdullah Al Sharbatly, 2nd Place: “My horse was amazing, it’s his sixth show, and he always jumps clear and is always first or second; I really like him. I never thought he could jump a CSI5* Grand Prix and it’s the first one he’s jumped in his life. So I’m really happy, thanks to God and congratulations to Scott – he deserved to win and did an amazing job. I’m happy for him as I am for myself.”
