First 5* victory goes to Ludo Philippaerts and Obama de La Liniere

It had been a while since I took part in a 5* competition, so I was fully committed,” shared an extremely combative Ludo Philippaerts after the first 5* class of Knokke Hippique 2022. He was simply unbeatable this afternoon. With the only 8-year-old BWP stallion Obama de La Liniere (Marius Claudius x Golden Hawk | Breeder: Jeroen Lissens), he completed the two phases of the 1.40 meter course with lightning speed and without faults. The numbers 2, Rene Lopez Lizarazo and Kheros Van’T Hoogeinde (BWP | Echo Van T Spieveld x Darco) needed even 5 seconds longer to complete the course. Denis Lynch and Brooklyn Heights (BWP | Nabab de Reve x For Pleasure) finished in third place.
This is Obama’s first 5* competition,” Ludo added. “For sure this young stallion has a lot of potential. Next year you will surely be able to catch us in the highest classes.”
