Forty-four riders came through the portal for the 1.45m Friends of the Meadows Cup at the Meadows on the Green to start Day 2 of the Spruce Meadows 'Continental' CSI5* presented by Rolex. The track designed by FEI Course Designer Michel Vaillancourt (CAN) tested both horse and rider through a series of technical elements.

Thirteen riders made it through to the jump-off round including Canadian Tiffany Foster and her mount Brighton (Contender II x Quick Star). Luiz Francisco de Azevedo (BRA) was forth to go in the jump-off order and laid down a quick clear ride with a time of 39.26s aboard Collin Colandro x Amethist). Foster and Brighton did their best to catch him, but fell short less than one tenth of a second with a time of  39.32s finishing them in second place.

"It's my first time here at Spruce Meadows, to win one class here is really something special for me," Luiz Francisco de Azevedo commented about his feelings on his first Spruce Meadows victory.
