_K7X7841The top three! Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Here's what the top three in the $1.5 Million CP International, presented by Rolex, had to say after an amazing day of competition at Spruce Meadows;

 

Ian Millar - the winner at the age of 67:

"It is amazing. I can honestly tell you that I didn't think I would win this Grand Prix again. I won it twice before, and it is a long time ago. And I have been second and third and so on, but I really didn't think I would win it again. The sport has changed so much and these young people live very fast and they know all the tricks and they are really good. I have so much respect and admiration for my fellow riders - they are that good! And to go up against them is no easy task and to take on the famous Leopoldo (the course designer) is also a painful experience."
