Peter Lutz kept the horse sport fans who lined the Derby Field banks guessing by posting the fastest jump-off time of the day as the last to compete from a field of 26 in the $25,000 CP Grand Prix to close out week six jumper competition.

Six horses advanced to the jump-off to vie for a piece of the top prize. Lutz and Quinta 106 cantered onto the field as the last to go and executed a clean, tight turn to the final line to secure the win in 36.908 seconds. The time bumped Jazz Johnson Merton (USA) into second place with a time of 37.698 seconds aboard her own Corona SB (Chello II x Landgraf I).

“Any opportunity I have to show on this field, I always take it,” said Lutz. “It’s a beautiful place to show with great footing and great environment. I think the horses do well here, but [Quinta 106] excelled today.”

Lutz has had the ride on the Swede Ventures’-owned Quinta 106, a 13-year-old Holsteiner mare (Quidam de Revel x Cento) for a year. “She’s a really competitive horse, very experienced, and scopey. I’m really happy to have the ride!”

It was banner day for Lutz-Manfredi Show Jumping, based out of Bedford, NY, with Mary Manfredi (USA) rounding out the podium in third with her longtime mount Magnus Orfeo (Magnus Orestus x Carjdor Z). They stopped the clock at 39.951 seconds in the jump-off.

“I’m so proud of Mary and her horse,” said Lutz. “We have had that horse for a long time, and we are so happy that he has had such a long career and continues to do well. It was a really great day for us.”

In addition to his win, Lutz was presented with the Champion Equine Insurance Jumper Style Award from Laura Fetterman of Champion Equine Insurance.

Jessica Mendoza (GBR) took fourth riding Dollar Girl (Dollar du Murier x Escudo I) for owned Windsor Farms, and Shannon Clifford (CHI) capped the top five on Ilusionist II by Toulon, owned by Texas de Limache LLC.
