John Whitaker Wins in St Tropez

Congratulations John Whitaker, winner of the Longines Grand Prix at the Athina Onassis Horse Show in St Tropez (Saturday, 4 June).

With a total prize-fund of €400,000 (£313,000) the class was hotly contested with a total field of 40. But it was John, riding his own and wife Clare’s incredible stallion Argento, who put in the best display to take the top honours.

John and Argento were one of just five to keep the poles intact in the second round and go head-to-head in the jump-off.

With three fast clears in front of him — each just a fraction of a second apart — John was the last rider to take to the arena. He pulled off an epic jump-off, coming home 0.09 of a second faster than runner-up Christian Ahlmann.

John uses Nupafeed MAH with Argento!
