Debany-Clero is based in Paris and was riding Tin Tin, an eight-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare. The pair won the class with a time of 39.11 seconds in the jump-off. The second place duo, France’s Olivier Jouanneteau riding Kaeleme, had a jump-off time of 39.21 seconds. A tenth of a second was the deciding factor.
