Tibor Jármy Jumped to Victory in the Bronze Tour
On the second day of the 120 cm Bronze Tour, Friday‘s third placed Tibor Jármy excelled on his beautiful gray mare, Elisé. He put down a speedy trip without penalty that was worthy of gold. For a long time Szabolcs Krucsó on Givan was at the lead but he eventually had to settle for second place in a field of 65 riders. Yesterday’s winner Márk Sándor Szilágyi closed in third place, ahead of Balázs Csuka on Timpex Memorial. Another Timpex horse, Timpex Hollyday ridden by Kristóf Szotyori Nagy finished fifth. Sixth place went Krisztián Búza in the saddle of Luxor F.

Ferenc Szentirmai Won the Silver Tour
The featured event of Gróf Széchenyi István Memorial on Saturday was the final of the Silver Tour. Twenty riders and their horses managed to get around the track without penalty from a starting field of 72 entries, so a jump-off decided on the ranking.
After an excellent fast trip, Ferenc Szentirmai, born in Hungary but competing for Ukraine, claimed victory.
Szabolcs Krucsó and Lady Winner seemed to repeat Thursday’s winning performance for a long time but at the end they slipped to second place. Gold Tour placed Hungarian bred PM Quintera didn’t let down his rider Balázs Horváth this time either. They turned to double clear rounds and closed third.
A Ukrainian rider took fourth place as well. Andre Schroder on Coco Chanell scored a shorter time than fifth-placed Balázs Horváth teamed with his other horse, Laugilot Z, and sixth László Tóth on Roxal Z.
