At the beautifully organized Brussels Stephex Masters, the Nieuwenhof horses and Gilles Thomas were feeling excellent. Luna van het Dennehof (Prince van de Wolfsakker x Quidam de Revel) and Gilles jumped to a great seventh place in the Rolex 5* GP with a particularly strong field of competitors including the top of the world. For the zeven-year-old Lavanoche T&L Z (Lavallino ter Klomp x Bentley vd Heffinck) there was a first place in the 1.45m class for seven- and eight-year-old horses. Feromas van Beek Z (Fantomas de Muze x Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve) jumped to a nice third place in a 1.45m class. Puskas de Kalvarie (9y) (Sea Coast Don't Touch Tiji Hero x For Pleasure) already showed nice sport on Thursday with a fourth place in a 1.40m class and on Saturday he jumped to a fifth place in the 1.45-class.
Next week Gilles travels to CSI4* Ascona with Elfra Van Beek Z and with Feromas Van Beek Z. The week after that follows at CSI4* Warsaw the final of the Nations League 2nd division. After that we will be at the start in Lanaken at the World Championship for young horses and the Belgian Championship.
