Eric Lamaze and Bezzie Madden best at Spruce Meadows

Happy winner - Eric Lamaze.

Eight combinations returned to the winning round, where Eric Lamaze (CAN) took home first place riding Coriana Van Klapscheut, his 10 year old Warmblood mare. This marks Lamaze’s third FEI win this season, after losing his prize stallion, Hickstead, last November. “It’s been a tough time, I’ve had to get used to losing a lot more” commented Lamaze, Spruce Meadows’ all-time prize money winner. “I feel a lot better about all my horses after taking them through the series here at Spruce.”

In celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s visit to Spruce Meadows in 1990, 44 horse/rider combinations saddled up to take home the $200,000 Queen Elizabeth II Cup, the third leg of the CN Precision series. After losing by a nose to Eric Lamaze (CAN) and Hickstead last year, Rich Fellers (USA) and Flexible set their sights on finally taking first place. It just wasn’t meant to be, with fellow Olympic teammate, Beezie Madden (USA), posting three clear rounds, and a jump off time of 37.58 to win first place.Beezie Madden and Simon.

With 44 horse/rider combinations to start, the course designed by Michel Vaillancourt (CAN) saw 5 combinations return from the second round into the jump off after over 900 meters of track and 38 obstacles over two rounds. Madden and her 13 year old Dutch Warmblood gelding, Simon, had some fierce competition, with two other CN Precision Series winners searching for a $50,000 bonus. Fellers, along with Kent Farrington (USA) were both looking to capture another leg of the series.
