Marc Bettinger - Bacardi

Marc Bettinger and Bacardi win the Sires of the World Grand Prix.

19 / 09 / 2015
Only seven of the 56 starters qualified for the jump of in the Grand Prix Sires of the World. Marc Bettinger with Bacardi (Balou du Rouet x Argentinus), the first to go in the jump off, was two seconds faster than the number two Sam Pollens on Okidoki vh Gelutt Z (Omar) and number three James Billington with VDL Cartello (Cartani).
The German, already several years riding for the François Mathy stable was extremely happy with his victory. “I have Bacardi 1,5 years now and it was a coincident that I got him. François bought him for a client and the second time he tried him he fell of so he didn’t want him anymore. I got him and he is really going better and better. Yesterday he jumped well in the warming up and today it went super. I really went for it in the jump off, perhaps you could do one stride less to the last jump. It was a class of a three star Grand Prix level and you needed a horse that was very good schooled because it was also a technically difficult course.”
