It was another big win for the prolific Scott Brash in the CSI 5* Grand Prix. After jumping a double clear in the first two rounds, the former World Number One was first to go in the jump-off and posted a faultless performance in a time of 45.21. The 31 year old from Scotland was riding Ursula XII who has been one of his faithful campaigners. The  16 year old mare has had a long and successful career with Brash and won the Grand Prix at Spruce Meadows last year.Brash helped Team GB win an Olympic gold in London 2012 and became the first rider to win the Rolex Grand Slam, all three of the sport’s most prestigious events in a single year- a feat he managed to pull off twice- in 2015 and 2016.
