Luciana Diniz wins Longines Grand Prix Port of Rotterdam
When 17 of the world’s best horses and riders qualified for the jump-off of the Longines Grand Prix of Rotterdam, everyone knew it was going to be a fast and furious race for the top check.
And when the dust cleared, it was the charismatic Luciana Diniz from Portugal who ended up on top with her athletic Fit For Fun. Diniz made a particularly daring turn in the jump-off to take the win—a turn that got the best of some.
“I am very happy with this victory and I am truly proud of my horse. The whole course felt like a flow—words cannot explain it. It just happened!” Diniz said. The Portuguese rider is hoping to represent her country in the Rio Olympic Games as an individual.
