FEI World Cup finals 2015: Bertram Allen leading the way after the first stage.
The first stage of the FEI World Cup final in Las Vegas has come to an end with Bertram Allen riding to first place on his grey mare Molly Malone.
The Irishman scored a clear in a time of 65.45 seconds in the race against the clock over 1.50m, finishing ahead of US rider Rich Fellers and Flexible in second.
In third place we find Patrice Delaveau. The Frenchman took the place of his fellow countryman Simon Delestre in the 18 finalists and has shown himself to be a contender for this year’s crown after the unlucky final last year in Lyon.
The top-ten from the first stage continued as follows:
4th Jur Vrieling NED VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P.
5th Steve Guerdat SUI Albfuehren’s Paille
