Press release from Live Oak International

 


 

With a fast time in the jump-off of 35.29, Andre Thieme and Cellisto (Cellestrial x Calypso II) took the blue ribbon in Saturday's Live Oak International CSI3* Longines world ranking class. Andre is a familiar face at Live Oak International having not missed a year since show jumping was introduced at the event and he went for the win today.

“Normally I’m not so quick. I knew the short turns were going to be the decider today and Cellisto is in good shape and has promising scope. I knew I was quick, but I was early in the jump off. The incentive of the NetJets Inc. leading Rider Award $10,000 award helped. I knew if I had a good ribbon today, I’d be a little closer to that.” Said Andre Thieme. 

Ireland’s Bertram Allen took home the second prize on Gun Powder (Econoon van het Lindehof x Caretano Z). “This is my first show with this horse and this very exciting. He jumped well yesterday and today the course was lovely. I got close but not close enough” said Bertram Allen.

USA’s Adrienne Sternlicht and Bennys Legacy (Lupicor x Voltaire) took the third spot today. “I had a miscommunication with my horse yesterday, but I have a lot of confidence in him and our partnership. Today was business as usual with him” said Adrienne Sternlicht. “I could have left out a stride in two of the lines in the jump-off, but I hadn’t seen anyone go before me. I was very happy with him today.”

Show jumping continues tomorrow with the thrilling $100,000 CSI-W3* Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Ocala. It is the last chance for U.S. riders to qualify for the 2020 Longines FEI World Cup™ Final in Las Vegas so the pressure will be on. Spectators will be in for some excitement.
