The first week of fall competition concluded on Sunday, October 7 at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), after Samuel Parot (CHI) and his own Atlantis claimed the only faultless round of the afternoon in the $35,000 1.45m Sunday Classic CSI 2*. The Tryon Fall Series presented by Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport has become a schedule staple for Parot, who frequents the venue through the summer months as well.

Blazing through first round timers in 80.37 seconds Parot and the 2003 Zangersheide stallion (Andiamo x Royal Bravour L) received exclusive praise for maneuvering the day's Peter Grant (CAN) designed course with ease. "The horse was really good this week," commented Parot. "On Thursday in the Welcome, he was clear with only one rail in the jump-off, but very fast. Last night in the Grand Prix I rode very poorly, so today I am so happy for the win."

Of the course, Parot noted that it looked to be an easy ride, but proved the majority of its contenders wrong. "The courses for the week have appeared to be somewhat easy, but they have all turned out to be very technical. They have been good for the horses and more complex for the riders."  

Celso Ariani (BRA) and Ricardo Romero's 2009 Belgian Warmblood stallion Janari Ter Dolen, took second place honors after crossing through timers in 84.34 seconds and with four faults. Third place went to Ireland's David Blake, piloting Pine Hollow Farm's Keoki, a 2009 Holsteiner (Catoki x Cassini I), to a time of 86.84 and with four added faults.
