Sharon de Groot advances to IRHA Futurity finals 3-years-old
25/11/2019 – The preliminaries of the Italian Non Pro Futurity for 3-years-old have been concluded yesterday in Cremona (ITA) counting 51 entries in total. The only Dutch competitor, Sharon de Groot and her own bred 3-year-old stallion Tinsel Whizington [Tinsel Jac x Conquistador Sis (Conquistador Whiz)], qualified for both the L4 and the L3, L2 and L1 finals posting a 208,0. De Groot did not stay out of the penalty box, therefore profit can still be made in the finals.
Leading in L4 and L3 were Italian Fabio de Iulio and RS Cronos Jac [RS Great Jac Feona x RS Shadow Olena (Spat Olena)] posting a 215,5. In L2 Italian Gabriele Carrarini and CG Smart N Gold [ARC Surprising Smart x ARC Girl Chic N Gold (Chic Please)] took the lead posting a 215,0 and in L1 German Youth rider Franziska Wallner and Shes Jerseylicious [Yellow Jersey x Shiney Enterprise (Smart And Shiney)] topped the list with a 213,0. The entries that qualified directly for the finals are determined since yesterday. Of the entries that missed the boat, several will get a second chance tomorrow in the consolation round. The finals are scheduled for Friday November 29.
