This year it was the starstruck Frenchman Olivier Robert, and his mount Belle Rock, who easily took the prestigious victory in JMS Falsterbo Derby. A fantastic performance of Olivier Robert and his very courageous mare that is just since five month in his stable.
The Falsterbo Derby course is a test of strength for both horse and rider. It is 1200 meters long and half of barriers consist of so-called natural barriers.
There were only two riders who manged to do a clear round. Besides Olivier Robert also managed Irishman Captain David O’Brien with Mo Chroi. The Frenchman won by riding over two seconds faster in the jump-off.
– I have a super horse, explains Olivier Robert happily. She has never done a derby before, but is perfect at everything.
