Pierre-Marie Friant, who already won the Masters Two EEM.TV  on Thursday, now clinched the Masters Two Prestige Italia with Vimae d’Auzay. The Nantes-based rider was the fastest over this 1,35m speed-class in just 51"01. He also took home the winner's prize in kind, a hand pallet offered by Pramac "I've been riding Vimae d’Auzay for five years. She's a brilliant mare. Today, we were even faster than yesterday, both because it was a faster class and because I was lucky enough to have a late start which enabled me to watch the course closely. Now? Vimae is to continue her sports career while having foals by embryo transfer", commented Pierre-Marie Friant soon after his win. Britain' Louise Saywell came second with Sharp Image in 51’’87 and young French rider Nina Malleveay was third with Astuce des Barrières in 52’’01.
