Stunning Corée in The Liège GP

This Sunday was the city of Liège GP, in a hall completely full and a very excited atmosphere. A difficult GP, rather of 4* level, that saw the first participants get through with difficulties. But 9 of them managed the clear round and were qualified for the jump off, among them Gregory and Corée, who realised a perfect first round with an amazing facility to overcome difficulties. Starting in the 8th position, they realised another clear round in the jump off, but not fast enough to worry the leader. So they ended up this 2016 GP in the 4th position. “I am of course very happy and at the same time a little bit disappointed because I really wanted to win this GP, but I rapidly had to admit it would be very hard, when I saw the course of the jump off that was not really of Corée’s liking. There were many U turns and speeding up, where Corée still has a little bit of difficulties. But on the other hand, I am delighted and happy of the way she jumped the 2 rounds of this GP. She gave me a feeling of incredible facility. I really am unbelievably lucky to have such a mare."
