Press release from Spruce Meadows



Mother Nature brought the sunshine for Saturday morning of the 2019 Spruce Meadows 'National' presented by Rolex. The action on the International Ring began with the TC Energy Winning Round (1.50m), which 31 horse/rider combinations qualified for earlier in the week.

Athletes competed over round one of the competition and the top ten athletes moved forward to the winning round. These top ten athletes represented seven nations with Ireland, Mexico and the United States each fielding more than one rider.

The riders returned to the winning round in the reverse order of scores from the first round. Kent Farrington (USA) was second last to go in the winning round and posted a quick clear ride with a time of 52.47s. Ireland's Darragh Kenny was the final to go in the competition, took advantage of watching Farrington's ride and came in faster with a time of 51.86s.

"I got to watch Kent, I knew how fast he was - he can go so fast, I knew I just needed to be faster and I had to take as much risk as possible and hope the jumps stayed up," Darragh Kenny (IRL) said on going last in the TC Energy Winning Round and what it took to win.
