35 competitors started in the Masters Three Le Figaro Grand Prix, all hoping to win. Seven of them managed to qualify for a very tight jump-off where Israel's Haley Elizabeth Schaufeld put down the fastest double clear aboard her Vigo d'Arsouilles mare Farah van Klapscheut to win this Grand Prix in 33’’25. Louise Ameeuw also did a tremendous job with her very regular Lover Boy Z. The very young Belgian rider came second in 33’’29 just ahead of France's Vera Desutter, third in 33"31 with Vandor de Mazure. The only other clear round came from Norman Julie Burguière, fourth on Boréale d’Ass in 33’’84.

Haley Elizabeth Schaufeld couldn't have dreamed of a better scenario for her first Longines Masters of Paris. The rider who divides her time between Belgium and Florida in the winter could count on her top mare Farah van Klapscheut. "She's incredible. With her huge action, I could do 6 strides instead of eight in a line. She also has the best brains and a heart of gold whichever the situation" commented the rider who definitely plans to come back to Paris. "It's the most incredible show I've been to.Actually, I believe I've never done so much shopping in my life", she concluded with a smile.
