Press release from Spruce Meadows



Twenty horse-and-rider combinations from eleven nations started the RBC Capital Markets Cup to round out Friday's competitions in the International Ring. The technical 1.50m track was navigated without error by five of the riders who produced clear rounds and advanced to the jump-off.

Mexican rider Nicolas Pizzaro was first into the jump-off and laid down a clear steady round with a time of 50.06s putting pressure on the remaining competitors. The lead was short lived as Darragh Kenny (IRL) rose to the occasion with a clear jump off round and a time of 44.33s - fast enough to secure first place.

"The first round course was tough, there wasn't so many clears but it was a good jump off my horse really felt on point. I've only had him (Romeo 88) for five months but I think the sky is the limit," Darragh Kenny (IRL) said about his horse Romeo 88.
