Of the 11 clears in the first round of the Acto Structures and Logistics Cup, 10 returned to jump-off the placings. Eric Lamaze, fresh off his success yesterday with Hickstead, rode the 9-year-old speed specialist, Coriana van Klapscheut (Darco x Heartbreaker), to the win. Ian Millar and the 16-year-old Dutch warm blood gelding In Style, followed him very closely for the blue ribbon.


The CANA Cup provided fans with a very exciting finale with 9 riders to jump-off. The $15,000.00 paycheque went to Leon Thijssen (NED), who rode his Dutch Warm blood stallion Tyson (Numero Uno x Voltaire) to a 5 tenths of a second win over his closest competitor, Mexican rider Jaime Guerra . "My horse is quick and very careful and I was able to cut a corner to two – that is where I won it. Tyson gets better and more ride-able as the week goes on.” Smiled Leon
