It was 19-year-old Eve Jobs that had the fastest time on a beautiful Sunday at Thunderbird Show Park. Steve Jobs' daughter was competing for the first time at Thunderbird, and after a successful week of competition she beat out many of the top riders in the sport, winning the Reliable Rentals $100,000 Grand Prix.

Aboard Venue D'Fees Des Hazalles, a 12-year-old mare that previously had a lot of success under Belgium's Fabienne Daigneux-Lange, Jobs had two clear rounds and a winning time in the jump-off of 44.16. Out of the eight riders in the jump-off, Sayre Happy, riding Dolinn, was the only other rider to go clear, with a time of 45.46.

Jobs' remarked after the class that she has not been riding Venue D'Fees Des Hazalles for very long. "I have actually only been riding her for a few weeks, so she's a new mount for me," said Jobs.

The course asked the right amount of questions for many riders in the class. There were lots of big names in the field, and there were some upsets, mostly around the water jump. Conor Swail and Karl Cook both had stops at the water.

Another American, Zazou Hoffman on W Zermie 13, had the fastest time of 39.88 – beating even speedster Rich Fellers, but she caught a rail on the last jump to end third. Eugenio Garza Perez, who had won both Grands Prix the past two days, was expected to give Jobs a run for her money in yesterday's class. Unfortunately, he had a stop at a big vertical coming out of the corner in the jump-off and fell down the ranks. Rich Fellers finished fourth in the class, and Jamie Barge fifth.
