Press release from Spruce Meadows Media Services



Friday of the Spruce Meadows 'Continental' CSI5*, presented by Rolex held the 1.55m Scotiabank Cup – the only qualifying competition for this Sunday's $400,000 Grand Prix. Fifty-eight horse-and-rider combinations took part in the first round of competition with nineteen going clear and qualifying for the jump-off.

Ireland's Darragh Kenny was in the lead for a brief moment, but Canada's Eric Lamaze and his Olympic mount Fine Lady 5 (Forsyth FRH x Drosselklang II) took a commanding lead  with a clear ride and time of 37.22s.

With three rides left, Lamaze held the lead but Kent Farrington (USA) had been itching for a win this Summer Series and he wasn't leaving anything on the table. Farrington aboard the 12-year-old chestnut gelding Creedance (Lord Z x Notaris), made it look easy. The pair laid down an unbeatable time of 35.51s. 

"Creedance has been a four year project here at Spruce Meadows and at times it didn't go very well. It feels great to come out tonight and beat the best in the world," Kent Farrnington said about his first win of the 2019 Spruce Meadows Summer Series.
