Victory for Bertram Allen and Gin Chin in yesterday's Stockholm Grand Prix

For the third year in a row, Bertram Allen has won the 1m55 Sweden Grand Prix at the CSI4* Sweden International Horse Show. Last year he took the win together with Molly Malone, in 2015 he grabbed the glory riding Quiet Easy.

Bertram Allen was one of just five riders who made it through to the second round jump-off in Stockholm yesterday, to win his seventh new car at the Swedish venue alone in the last three years, and the 10th new car of his career.

Together with the 11-year-old gelding Gin Chin van het Lindenhof, the duo took the lead with a clear round against the clock in 42.63 seconds, comfortably faster than Sweden’s Malin Baryard-Johnsson who had held the lead with H&M Indiana. Sweden’s Peder Fredricson and his European individual gold medal winner H&M All In, lowered a single fence when chasing Allen’s target as last to go, with Fredricson having to settle for third place on the podium.

Bertram says:
“This is a fantastic show; I have won six cars in total the past two years, and now the seventh. My horse jumped amazing today. I knew Peder could be really fast, so I tried to give it all, I really wanted to win today in front of this audience, this is a unique place to compete at, with its atmosphere.” 

This week Bertram will be competing at the CSI5* Geneva with Hector, Izzy and Casper.
