Press release from Tryon International Equestrian Center



Santiago Lambre (MEX) and his own Ibabco blazed around the short course to take the win in 39.81 seconds at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), also securing second place in the $36,000 1.45m Sunday Classic with Dingeman, stopping the jump-off timers in 40.15 seconds. Samuel Parot (CHI) and Thriller P, his own 2004 Swedish Warmblood stallion (Cardento x Lucky Light), cleared the second-round track in 41.89 seconds to claim third place on the day. 

Eighteen pairs tested the Manuel Esparza (MEX) course, with nine returning to challenge the jump-off track. Lambre guaranteed himself the win aboard Ibabco, a 2008 Belgian Warmblood stallion (Nabab De Reve x Darco), before taking a less-ambitious route in the irons with Dingeman to add the red rosette. 

"I knew all the riders in the jump-off were fast, so on Ibabco I tried all that I could to win. I took more risks, and it worked. On Dingeman I was last in the jump-off and didn't have pressure, so I aimed for second," he explained. "For sure on the rollback to number four, I made up a lot of time - I was faster on Dingeman, but you can win two seconds there."

Ibabco was feeling quite fresh after last night's competition in the $72,000 St. Luke's Hospital Grand Prix, Lambre detailed. "He jumped very well in the first round, and I had a cheap rail in the jump-off last night. So, I jumped him again today, and he's a very good horse at this level. Sometimes it's good for him to jump a smaller show like a 2* to prepare for the next competition. I'm very happy with him."

Dingeman, the 2008 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Nintender x Darnels) owned by Aurora Rangel De Alba, is coming off a two-month break, and Lambre elaborated that the mount is preparing for another successful summer at the venue, building on prior wins at TIEC. 

"I gave Dingeman a break for two months, and this is his first show back. I want to have him ready for the summer here in Tryon. He is also a good Grand Prix horse, and I hope he will be more fit in a couple months," concluded Lambre.
