Shane Sweetnam (IRL) and Cyklon 1083 secured the win in today's $35,000 Tryon 1.45m Speed Stake CSI 4*, stopping the timers in a blazing 60.230 seconds. Eric Navet (FR) and Basimodo finished in the second place position with a time of 62.080 seconds, while Kyle Timm (CAN) and Javas Georgie B earned third place honors with a time of 62.730 seconds. 

Sweetnam and Cyklon 1083, a 2001 Swedish Warmblood (Cardento x Cortus), owned by Spy Coast Farm LLC, have been frequent visitors to the winner's circle at the TIEC and today proved to be uncatchable. The track set by Alan Wade (IRL), who has built impressive courses throughout the week at the TIEC, tested the horse's speed and agility. 

"Alan [Wade] set a really nice track today. The way the course was set made everyone do the same route and there was not a big gap in any of the times. I was early in the order so I went as fast as I thought I needed to, to win the class and my time held up." Sweetnam described. 

Giving credit to his long time partner Cyklon 1083, Sweetnam commented, "Cyklon is naturally a quick horse and I made a tidy roll back to fence four and fence eight. I think that made the difference and how I won the class."

Sweetnam spoke highly of the impressive stallion, Cyklon 1083, and his ability to win all of the world, as well as here in North Carolina at TIEC. "He has won everywhere. He is sixteen years old now and I have had him for six years. When he comes out to compete he always has a chance to be at the top. He is one of my favorites. He can do everything. He is a great horse and his record speaks for himself."

Sweetnam looks forward to tomorrow nights most anticipated class of the week at the TIEC with two entries vying for the win in the $216,000 Horseware® Ireland Grand Prix CSI 4* with competition beginning at 8:00 p.m. "This is a great facility, and the atmosphere is always fantastic. There is a great competition here this week and Alan [Wade] will for sure build tough enough tomorrow night. It will be a great class for the spectators," Sweetnam concluded. 

Competition continues tomorrow featuring the most exciting class of the week, the $216,000 Horseware® Ireland Grand Prix CSI 4*, with entertainment beginning at 6:00 p.m. and competition starting at 8:00 p.m. All of the on-site restaurants will be open as well as live music, face painting, magicians and more! All activities FREE to the public.
