Tonight Belgian rider Pieter Devos took a popular win in front of a jubilant home crowd in Mechelen, Belgium. Devos took tonight’s KBC Bank & Verzekering 1.50m competition riding the talented Dream of India Greenfield, the very same talented mount he took this year’s Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Shanghai with. Forty one riders graced the start list and thirteen combinations qualified for the jump off. Out of those thirteen, Belgium’s Devos acquired the fastest time of 35.24 seconds.  Second place went to Brazil’s Marlon Zanotelli and the mare Malou owned by Octavia Farms LLC. Recent Land Rover Masters winner Jur Vrieling took third place with the gelding Flash Dance van de Kalevallei.
