This morning, the Verrie racecourse (49) hosted the second part of the CCI 4 * -L Equi Action dressage test. And what a half! Of those capable of upsetting the ranking of the day before. Yesterday in the lead after a score of 70.87%, the Italian Stefano Brecciaroli is relegated to provisional seventh place, ahead of a pretty bunch of French riders ... and a German rider, Julia Krajewski, who put all these gentlemen of 'agreement in their place. On an average of 75.32% (24.7 penalties), the rider, riding Amande de B'neville, is ahead of the French Thomas Carlile and Birmane (74.84%, 25.2 penalties) and Nicolas Touzaint on Eboli (72.54%, 27.5 penalties ). Eight couples (out of thirty-four) thus finish the dressage with an average of over 70%: that is to say the level of entries for this last French CCI 4 * -L before Tokyo.
