Cairo, September 12(SEE): Egyptian rider Sameh El- Dahan won first place in the CP International Horseback riding competition presented by Rolex on Sunday. The Egyptian proved himself dominant as it proved to be a million-dollar show of calmness for him , as he rode Suma’s Zorro triple-clear to win the coveted CP International, the $3-million Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping finale of Masters week.
“I was in this position last year,” said El Dahan moments after the grand prix victory. “I went clean in the first round, and then I think I got too excited after the first round and the second round didn’t go as planned whatsoever. So this time we were a bit more composed — we made sure we stayed more focused to achieve the result, thankfully, that we achieved. El-Dahan stated after the competition.
He further added“The feeling is really indescribable. I need a few days to make sure everything sinks in and believe that this actually happened. It’s something every rider dreams of to win such a prestigious event at such a prestigious place such as Spruce Meadows. I’m over the moon and delighted — a feeling I will never forget.
