Castor vh Molenhof Z conquers Knokke Hippique completely

09 / 07 / 2019
Do you already know Castor vh Molenhof Z? This son of Catoki x Richebourg stood out in Knokke Hippique. Armand Van Tricht bred him twelve years ago and since June he has been performing internationally under Dominique Hendrickx. During his time with Dominique, this horse has only put down clear rounds so far! During Knokke Hippique’s first week of Summer Circuit, Castor was good for two second places, including in the two-star Grand Prix. Improving those results, would be nearly impossible, but not for Castor vh Molenhof Z. Last weekend Castor and Dominique won both the 1.50m qualifier and the 1.55m three-star Grand Prix in Knokke!

In that GP we saw a strong elite squad return to the 13-way jump-off out of 56 entries. When the scoreboard revealed 36.06 seconds and first place, Dominique raised his arm in a victory salute. Moreover, Castor clearly brought him into the winning mood, because he was also victorious in Sunday’s CSI2* GP with Bacardi Les Hauts.

Olivier Philippaerts achieved some good results as well. This time with Cigaret JVH Z, a descendant of Clinton x Kannan from breeder Jan Vermeiren. After taking second place in the qualifier after Dominique Hendricks and Castor vh Molenhof Z, they finished in 10th place in the 3* GP with four points in the jump-off.

Many mistakes were made in the CSI1* GP. Barely 7 out of the 83 participants were advanced to the jump-off. In that jump-off the Finnish Maiju Mallat and Newton Alia Z (Nonplusultra 3 x Corrado I) were the only ones with a second clear, which put them in first place. Other places of honor were taken by Jessica Mendoza, who became fifth with her seven-year-old I-Cap CI Z (I'm Special de Muze x Air Jordan Z) and by Alessandra Fuzzi, who followed in sixth place with Grazia Z (VDL Glasgow vh Merelsnest x Concorde).

In the 1.40m final for seven-year-olds, Agustin Covarrubias from Chile gained second place with his Z mare Vida Loca Della Marca (Vigo d’Arsouilles x Heartbreaker). Lieven Devos closed the top three with Dawa de Greenbay Z (Diarado x Schilling ET).

The double clear by Jeroen Appelen and Cajou van het Hobos Z (Clinton x Darco) in the final class for six-year-olds was good for fifth place.

Among the five-year-olds, Emma Stoker and Skylandria Z (Super Trooper de Ness x Indoctro) acquired two shared first places in the Clear Round classes. In the final they finished 2/10 of a second too slow to win and were referred to third place.
