Friday was a good day for the Irish, with Team Ireland taking the win at the FEI European Championships and Conor Swail winning again at Thunderbird Show Park in the Steel-Craft Doors $35,000 Cup.

Swail and Flower (Bon Ami x Randel Z) have two in the bag leading up to Sunday’s Longines FEI World Cup. “It does do a lot that she’s jumped three rounds in the ring and excelled. It gives me a lot of confidence going in," he said. 

With a big class of 63 riders and 17 in the jump-off, this was the last chance for the riders to get out on the grass before the big day on Sunday. 

Swail’s time of 38.70 in the jump-off beat Mandy Porter’s who came second on Coral Reef Follow Me II (For Pleasure x Sandro) with a time of 39.32. Porter was the only one with two in the jump-off, but caught a rail with her second horse. Ben Asselin was the top placed Canadian aboard Wahrhaftge CR (Clearway x Coronado), finishing third.
