Friday evening of the Spruce Meadows 'National' CSI5* presented by Rolex featured the RBC Capital Markets Cup 1.50m. It was a tough track where riders would be challenged throughout the course and those who made it through clean, deserved it.

Young Canadian Ali Ramsey and Casino (Casiro I x Ludwig von Bayern) would post the first clear round of the night after many veterans had gone, and in the end it was good enough for the third place with a time of 48.44 seconds. She was soon followed by Michael Morriseey (USA) on Chance St Hermelle (Calvaro x Hemmingway), and Patricio Pasquel (MEX) on Pomerol (Vivaldi x Serenade) who took second and first respectively but those would remain the only clears of the night.

Pasquel was last to go in the jump-off and made good use of being able to watch the two young guns go. Pasquel plans to have Pomerol compete this Sunday in the CNOOC Nexen Cup. "It's tough to train for the shadows, but my horse handled the shadows fine," Pasquel explained after the class.
