Tracy Fenney (USA) and MTM Reve Du Paradis bested a large and competitive class in the $86,000 1.50m Suncast® Classic CSI5* today at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), concluding competition of Tryon Fall V. Fenney and MTM Reve Du Paradis dashed through the track set in George H. Morris Arena to complete their jump-off round in 43.011 seconds. Tiffany Foster (CAN) and Brighton captured second place with a time of 43.565 seconds, while Ali Wolff (USA) and Quirie 2 were presented with third place honors after crossing through the timers in 44.163 seconds.

Competition at the 2016 Tryon Fall Series presented by Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District commenced on Thursday, September 22, and will continue through Sunday, October 30, featuring hunter and jumper competition, alongside two weeks of FEI CSI3* classes and the highly anticipated FEI CSI5*.

Fenney guided MTM Reve Du Paradis, a 2005 Selle Francais gelding (Crown Z x Adelfos) owned by MTM Farm, around the track set by Anthony D'Ambrosio (USA) to capture top honors in the final class of the CSI5* week at TIEC. Hosting 41 original entries, only ten combinations advanced to contest the short course on a beautiful fall day in the Carolina Foothills. 

"I felt like it was good that I got to watch a few people go before me today. I went early in the class last night and I wished I had the chance to go a bit later to see how the rest of the course was playing out. I think the whole week was built great and very fair," elaborated Fenney. "There was always a good turnout for the jump-off rounds and it's always fun for the crowd to watch a good jump-off."

Today's win highlighted the duo's first victory together at TIEC and Fenney felt the course suited MTM Reve Du Paradis, providing an element of added confidence heading into FEI CSI3* competition next week. 

"He has a lot of blood and doing two to three classes a week is not so difficult for him," she elaborated, as she discussed her competition routine with MTM Reve Du Paradis. "I felt like I could enter him in the class today and he would still jump well, which he did."

Fenney is motivated by good competition and always sets her sights on success in the ring. Entering the final day of competition this week, Fenney noted that MTM Reve Du Paradis has continued to progress throughout the week and felt the pair had the opportunity to place well in the class.

"I always try to go for it. I think that this is probably the most prestigious win that I've had on him. I've had him for maybe a year and a half. He's a funny horse that has a lot of personality. He is always ready to go and has never had a dull day. He's always exuberant and is a great horse to have around the barn. We're already looking forward to next week and hopefully can continue with this success," she added.
