Press release from Spruce Meadows

 


 

The International Ring at Spruce Meadows welcomed 100 horse-and-rider combinations representing 18 countries to the 1.50m Friends of the Meadows Cup. FEI Course Designer Santiago Varela (ESP) built a 535m track with 11 obstacles (13 efforts) to test the horses and riders who stepped through the clock tower.

Mother nature had other plans for the afternoon event as electricity and heavy rain forced a brief pause in the competition. Some rider's were still eager to go and were chasing the quick clear ride posted by Jordan Coyle (IRL) and Picador earlier in the day, while others saved their horses for another day. Coyle's clear round time of 62.05s could not be caught and he secured his fifth win of the 2019 Spruce Meadows Summer Series. Second place went to Molly Ashe (USA) with Balous Day Date, while Conor Swail (IRL) with GK Coco Chanel ended third. 

"It was a very good course, my horse is quite fast and I just stuck to my plan and it worked out," Jordan Coyle commented on his plan going into the Friends of the Meadows Cup.
