Press release from Spruce Meadows



Warm weather greeted horses and riders for day two of competition at the Meadows on the Green which started at 8:00AM with the 1.50m Friends of the Meadows Cup. Forty-six horse-and-rider combinations stepped through the portal to challenge the 1.50m track set by FEI Course Designer Alan Wade (IRL). Twelve partnerships delivered fault-free rides in the first round and advanced to the jump off.

Over the shortened track, riders were having to take risks in an attempt to secure their place in the winner's circle and for some the risk paid off. Kent Farrington of the United States and Jasper (Heartbreaker x Wega Vant Gestelhof) made it look easy jumping a clear round in a time of 32.36s - almost two seconds faster than Rodrigo Lambre (BRA) who would have to settle for second place with J'Adore Van Het Klinkhof (Thunder Van De Zouthoeve x Alcatraz). Third place went to Diego Vivero (ECU) with Zambia Mystic Rose (Chin Chin x unknown).
