Rodrigo Szuhai on Jayjay Wind Gold in the Prize Presented by the Hungarian Sport Horse Breeders’ Association

In the semi-final of the young horses’ competition contenders rode for the prize presented by the Hungarian Sport Horse Breeders’ Association.

Like the day before, spectators saw great riders from a quality field of six- and seven-year-old horses. Half of the pairs completed both phases clear, so only slight differences decided the runners-up places. For a long time Bulgarian Ivaylo Bonev, yesterday’s runner-up, was in the lead but then the just 12-year-old Rodrigo Szuhai proved again that his podium finish yesterday was no fluke. He won the competition on the seven-year-old Jayjay confidently after a sensational fast track, so Friday’s Longines EEF Series Semi Final Budapest CSIO***-W started with the Hungarian anthem.
