The BIOS Group Prize is a two star 1.45m-competition with a jump off. Only one combination managed to stay clear, so there was no need for a jump-off: Belgium's Evelyne Putters and Nabeau van het Migroveld Z were the winners. Her compatriot Robin van Thillo came in second place with P-Jewel’s Promise in a time of 76.14 seconds with four penalty points. American rider Vani Khosla and Khaleesi placed third with four penalty points.

Evelyne Putters: "When I walked the course, I already thought it would be a difficult ride, but I had not expected to be the only one to stay in the clear. A lot of combinations made a mistake right at the first obstacle, the line to the double double and the last line were also challenging.

We bought this horse as a four-year-old and my trainer rode him until he was eight. After that, he was in Niels Bruynzeel's stable for a little while and for the last two years I've been his rider. We've competed in the European Championships for Juniors and now we compete in two and three star competitions. Last year I competed here in Rotterdam for the first time. My mother already came to this event as a little girl and she was thrilled to see me ride here. It went really well this year and I hope I can be here again next year."
