Press release from Traverse City Spring



Margie Engle (USA) returned to her Traverse City home away from home and to her winning ways Thursday. 

Of the field of 18, Engle took the first and third positions in the first international class of the season, the $37,000 CSI3* 1.45m Speed , with Dicas and Cesna M, respectively. With several athletes bringing forth multiple rides, the comfort with Guilherme Jorge’s (BRA) track increased as the class went on.

The first clear round of the season came from fellow American Jonathan McCrea, who navigated Windsor Show Stables’ Gazelle ES to the first Twydil Time To Beat of 70.49 seconds. The time would hold the lead until Engle stepped her second ride into the Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel International Ring and let Dicas show off in the familiar atmosphere.

Though taking a slightly conservative approach to keep all rails intact, including a careful double of verticals and a skinny vertical, Engle knew Dicas had what it took to secure the top spot. “Today I just wanted to give him a nice round,” she said.

“I didn’t do the inside turns; there were a lot of quicker rounds. I just wanted to get him in the ring once and qualify him for Sunday. He’s hopefully got a long summer ahead of him. I just wanted to go neat and nicely enough and he performed very well.”
