After spending nearly two months in the south of Spain, in Mijas and Vejer, Gregory returned to Belgium, with the sense that he completed a positive trip and has many good prospects to come.
Here is his reaction upon his return: “All of the horses learned a lot. As is the case every year, the young horses returned a little tired but with much more experience. All around, they were very good even if some have a lot to learn. The 5 year olds will now have a little break, the 6 year olds will continue training gently, and the seven year olds now will prepare for the Championship at Lummen at the end of April. I am most content with my 8 year old horses (whether they were with me, Damien or Ugo) who showed a lot of quality and certain ones are even ready to begin a progressive move towards the bigger classes. As for the older horses, they also performed very well with a victory in the GP for Eldorado in Mijas, Papillon in Vejer, and another victory in the small GP in Vejer for Vipreska as well as a very promising debut for Coree who earned a second place finish. For certain others, while there were not victories, there were very encouraging performances from Rio (who participated in various GPs with Damien with a notable clear jumping round but incurring time faults in the last CSI-4* GP) and Zippit who, for his part is ready for a higher level as demonstrated by his 2 clear rounds in the GPs. He will accompany Egano this weekend for the GCT in Miami.
