ZHASHKIV, Ukraine, Mar. 8, 2019–Ukraine’s Inna Logutenkova on Don Gregorius won the World Cup Grand Prix Friday and placed second on her Fleraro in the wrapup Central European event for the world championship.

The Ukraine Olympic and World Games partnership of Inna and the 17-year-old Oldenburg stallion scored 70.935 per cent.

On Fleraro, a 16-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding, she placed second on 70.543 per cent.

Maksim Kovshov on Flirt, on the Ukraine teams at the 2015 and 2017 Europeans as well as the 2014 Normandy World Games, were third on 66.739 per cent.

This was the second of two Ukraine back-to-back World Cup events. The Freestyle to decide points will be staged Saturday.

The results will, however, have no impact on the two places allocated to Central Europe for the final in Gothenburg, Sweden in a month.

Russians Regina Isachkina and Stanislav Cherednichenko are tied atop the league standings with 68 points and no other rider can earn enough points to challenge.

Hositilities between Russia and Ukraine limit opportunities for riders from the two nations competing in each other’s qualifying events.
