Sep 16, 2019 - 2:59 PM

Jessica Springsteen took the biggest win of her career on Sept. 14 with a scintillating victory in the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Ramatuelle/Saint-Tropez (France) in a high caliber 14-strong jump-off.

Springsteen reigned supreme riding the 12-year-old bay mare RMF Zecilie beating second-placed rider Pieter Devos by just over a second in a tremendous climax to the event on the shores of the Mediterranean.  She is the 17th rider to qualify for the prestigious LGCT Super Grand Prix at the GC Prague Playoffs in November.

”I’m still in shock—[RMF Zecilie] jumped so amazing, and I’m so happy,” said Springsteen. “She was with me every step of the way. I’m so excited about GC Prague Playoffs, Helena [Stormans] said there are only two chances left [to qualify], and I laughed it off and said, ‘No way,’ so I really can’t believe it; I’m so excited.”

Speaking about the upcoming LGCT Finals in New York, close to where Springsteen grew up with her parents Bruce and Patti Springsteen in New Jersey, she said: “It’s my home town; my whole family are coming. I think it is going to be unbelievable; I’m so looking forward to it!”
