The first leg of the Triple Crown at Angelstone kicked off Saturday night with the $86,600 Kubota Grand Prix.

The star-studded field of 21 riders from five countries produced five clear rounds in round one, with Captain Canada Ian Millar guiding Dixon – who will represent Canada at Spruce Meadows in September – leading the charge. His teammate at Spruce and local favorite Keean White joined the jump-off with Corette, along with Leslie Howard and Erynn Ballard.

Leslie Howard amazed the crowd as she flew through the jump-off, but knocked down the last fence to eventually finish second aboard Donna Speciale. Ian Millar, as he always does, rode a calculated clear, slicing inside to the Carol Sollak wall, and producing the only double clear to win the class. Keean White also had the time to win, but an unfortunate rail placed him third.

Howard also took care of the fourth place, after four faults in the jump-off with Gentille van Spieveld while Erynn Ballard finished fifth on Royale du Rouet after eight faults against the clock.
