“That was the best freestyle test we have ever performed!” rider Shelly Francis blurted out after riding to victory in the CDI**** Grand Prix freestyle with Danilo on a score of 79.30 percent. “It was great fun! It was fantastic! I was so happy that I cried,” she raved.
“It wasn’t my best Grand Prix, which is why I was simply overjoyed that he performed so well today, regardless of the result,” Francis said after her test. Indeed, it sufficed to take the victory over Germany’s Ingrid Klimke on Franziskus 15, who scored 78.39 percent. To top everything Francis was given a champagne shower by U.S. Chef d’Equipe, Robert Dover, after the prize-giving ceremony.
