Edwina with fifth place in LGCT Grand Prix du Prince de Monaco
Edwina and Identity were in unbelievable form last weekend to finish fifth in the prestigious Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix du Prince de Monaco.
Barely a second separated the top three riders in Monaco on Saturday in a breathtakingly fast 6-way jump-off where Max Kühner stepped up to the podium in second place, Olivier Philippaerts in third and with Darragh Kenny topping the podium. On board the 13-year-old bay mare Identity Vitseroel, Edwina was looking to do better than her second place in Stockholm, but the lightest of touches at the castle fence crushed their chance for a win, dropping them to fifth place overall.
"It was definitely one of the toughest courses I’ve ever ridden. This was my last preparation into Tokyo and I couldn’t be more happy. It’s taken some time to find my buttons with Identity but I think I’ve found them now, " Edwina said.
There were also dramatic changes on the overall LGCT Championship leaderboard
as Edwina flies into the lead with 152 points. Peder Fredricson sits in second, Ben Maher in third.
