Daniel Bluman of Israel raced to a first-place finish aboard Colestina H, owned by Blue Star Investments & Kim Douglas, in today's $72,000 Joe DiMaggio Children's Health Specialty Center 1.50m Qualifier. The pair stopped the jump-off timers in 34.779 seconds, putting in a double-clear effort. Taking home second place was Nicole Shahinian-Simpson of Wellington, FL and Carol Rosenstein’s Akuna Mattata after their 34.958-second jump-off. Michael Morrissey of Wellington, FL rode Chance Ste Hermelle, owned by Qbs Equestrian LLC, through the timers in 35.132 seconds to claim the yellow ribbon. 

Today's 1.50m track, set by FEI designer Anthony D’ambrosia, challenged a total of fifty-three competitors. Fourteen pairs returned for the jump-off, while six completed the tracks double-clear. "It was a nice round. I thought it was a good number of people in the jump-off," commented Daniel Bluman after his win. "Honestly, the most important thing is that the footing is amazing. We're so happy to have nice footing, it's pleasurable for the horses, safe for us, and honestly we're just very grateful. It makes a huge difference. It makes the show a different quality and you can feel the excitement of everyone around." Bluman revealed that he will be riding his 16-year-old mare, Sancha LS in the Saturday night Grand Prix.
