Wellington, Fla. – A week of unprecedented success for the U.S. at CSIO Wellington came to a close on Sunday with Todd Minikus claiming victory in the CSIO4* Grand Prix presented by Lugano Diamonds and the U.S. Teams completing a clean sweep of FEI Nations Cups presented by Hollow Creek Farm.

Minikus (Wellington, Fla.) and his partner from the United States’ winning effort in the FEI Nations Cup presented by Kingsland Equestrian, Babalou 41, charged to the head of the field in Sunday’s feature Grand Prix on the strength of impressive jumping. The pair was one of 10 combinations to jump faultlessly over Anthony D’Ambrosio’s 14-obstacle course and qualify to return for the jump-off. In their return trip, Minikus and Two Swans Farm’s 10-year-old Oldenburg mare again produced a clear round in a time of 35.77, which no other combination could match.

“That was a nice week,” said Minikus. “Babalou is starting to step up to the big leagues. I think she’s got a big future ahead of her and I couldn’t be happier with her.”

Teammates from the Hermès U.S. Show Jumping Team, McLain Ward (Brewster, N.Y.) and Double H Farm’s 13-year-old Zangersheide gelding HH Carlos Z and Margie Engle and Elm Rock Partners, LLC’s 11-year-old Oldenburg stallion also qualified for the jump-off, finishing in eighth and ninth places, respectively.

FEI Nations Cups presented by Hollow Creek Farm

Postponed because of rain on Saturday, the conclusion of the FEI Nations Cups presented by Hollow Creek Farm began with the completion of the first round of the Children’s competition followed by the second round for Children’s competitors. The second rounds of the Junior and Young Riders Nations Cup were then completed, with the second round of the Nations Cup doubling as the first round of Grand Prix competition. All Nations Cup second round clears returned to jump-off for the Hollow Creek Grand Prix titles. Drawing inspiration from the United States win in Friday’s FEI Nations Cup presented by Kingsland Equestrian, the Child Rider, Junior Rider, and Young Rider Teams all surged to victory, ensuring that the home nation won all four Nations Cup held at CSIO Wellington.

Led by Chef d’Equipe Diann Langer, the three U.S. teams of promising young equestrians held the lead after their respective first rounds over Anthony D’Ambrosio’s course and produced strong second rounds efforts to secure victory.

“It was a great day and a great week all the way through,” said Langer. “I thought the teams were the best of the best. I came in feeling very confident, but you never know what can happen and I’m very pleased with them all and so excited.”

The U.S. Child Riders set the tone for the day as they stormed to victory, finishing on a two-round total of zero, ahead of Brazil in second place on four faults and Argentina in third place on a score of five faults.

Yasmin Rizvi (Greenwich, Conn.) jumped in the lead-off position for the U.S. and produced a double clear with immaculate efforts in both rounds of the Nations Cup. In the jump-off, she again was clear with Peacock Ridge, LLC’s 15-year-old KWPN gelding Delilah, finishing in a time of 30.59 to earn second-place honors in the Hollow Creek Farm Children’s Grand Prix.

“It’s really exciting to win, it was my first time on a team and it was really fun,” said Rizvi. “I felt a little more pressure because I didn’t want to let the team down but it was so much more fun to win as a team.”

Catalina Peralta (Geneva, Fla.) added her name to the list of eight double clears with faultless rounds on Frances Land’s Merlin. In the Grand Prix jump-off, the 15-year-old British Warmblood lowered a single rail in a time of 31.70 to finish in 12th place.

Charles Jacobs (Wellington, Fla.) and CMJ Sporthorse, LLC’s 15-year-old Sachsen-Anhaltiner gelding Campesino IV jumped in the third spot for the United States, incurring four-fault trips in both Nations Cup rounds and finishing in 17th in the Grand Prix.

Anchoring the U.S. effort in the Children’s Nations Cup was Sheer Levitin (Delray Beach, Fla.) and her own 12-year-old Selle Francais gelding Nabuco. With clears in both rounds, the combination secured victory for the Americans as well as finishing in 11th place in Grand Prix after having the final rail in the jump-off where they finished in a time of 27.91.

Brazil’s Thales Marino and Balla 12 were the winners of the Hollow Creek Farm Children’s Grand Prix, going clear in the jump-off in a time of 30.40.

The Junior Rider Team of Kelli Cruciotti, Lauren Fisher, Madison Goetzmann, and Lucas Porter followed the Children’s victory with a win of their own, finishing on an overall score of one fault. The U.S. headed into the second round on Sunday on a score of one and added nothing more on the strength of three clear rounds.

Cruciotti (Elizabeth, Colo.) jumped first for the United States with Serenity Equestrian Ventures’ 14-year-old Swedish Warmblood mare Chamonix H and repeated her clear round from Saturday to be one of only two double clears. In the jump-off the pair had a single rail and finished in a time of 32.05 to finish the Hollow Creek Farm Young Rider Grand Prix in sixth place.

“She’s amazing and has a huge heart, and lots of scope and a big stride that I can really use to my advantage,” said Cruciotti of Chamonix H. “She’s a pleasure to ride.”

After incurring one time fault in the first round, Fischer (Bedford, N.Y.) had an improved effort with her own Offenbach Du Granit producing a faultless effort in round two. In the jump-off the 13-year-old Selle Francais gelding had two rails down for eight faults in a time of 30.51 to finish in ninth.

Goetzmann (Skaneateles, N.Y.) and John Madden Sales Inc.’s 12-year-old KWPN gelding Wrigley were clear in Saturday’s first round but jumped a four-fault round on Sunday. The pair completed the Grand Prix in 14th place.

Porter and Phineas, who had a single rail in the first round, jumped clear on Sunday to ensure the U.S. would finish on a score of one. In the jump-off, Sleepy P Ranch LLC’s 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding lowered two rails for eight faults in a time of 33.60 to finish the Grand Prix in 10th place.

Ireland collected second-place honors in Nations Cup competition on 13 faults, as Brazil finished third on a score of 16 faults. Mexico’s Juan Pablo Gaspar and Charlotte were victorious in the Grand Prix, finishing their clear jump-off round in 31.62 seconds.

The U.S. Young Riders completed the American sweep of Nations Cups at CSIO Wellington as the team of Shawn Casady, Spencer Smith, Chloe Reid, and Michael Hughes finished on a two round total of four faults to finish ahead of Brazil on 24 faults and Ireland in third on 28 faults.

Leading off for the U.S. was Casady (Harriman, Tenn.) and Cavallo Farms, LLC’s 15-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding Twister. The combinationduplicated their four-fault effort from round one on Sunday to finish the Grand Prix in sixth place.

Smith (Wellington, Fla.) and Wyndmont’s IV Ever produced two immaculate rounds in the Nations Cup to be one of only two double clear combinations. In the jump-off the pair jumped another fault-free effort in an unmatchable time of 32.84 to win the Grand Prix.

“I thought the course was a real test of consistency,” said Smith of D’Ambrosio’s course. The 2014 Pessoa/US Hunter Seat Medal Finals presented by Randolph College champion has only been riding IV Ever a short time but has quickly built a rapport with the 14-year-old KWPN gelding. “I started riding him at the beginning of the circuit and he’s been really great for me.”

Reid (Washington, D.C.) also looked to add her name to the double-clear list with Chloe D Reid LLC’s 10-year-old Athena, but it was not meant to be as they collected four faults on Sunday. The 2014 Randolph College/USEF Junior Jumper Champions finished the Grand Prix in seventh place.

Anchoring the U.S. effort was Hughes (Allendale, N.J.) and Luxina. Not needed to jump in round one, the pair completed the U.S. effort in round two with a clear round. In the jump off, Christina Fried’s 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare lowered a single rail in a time of 33.67 to finish in fourth.

The USEF would like to thank the owners and families of the Child Rider, Junior Rider, and Young Rider competitors for their generous support of the future stars of the sport.

Beezie Madden Two for Two on Friday at Spruce Meadows ‘National’ Tournament

June 08, 2013 By: janwest Category: General

 

image001

Calgary, AB – June 7, 2013 – Beezie Madden led the victory gallop in both competitions in the International Ring today. In the $35,000 RBC Capital Markets Cup 1.50m, she and Amadora found the path to win. The $35,000 ATCO Energy Solutions Cup 1.45m had a field of 62 competitors, and it was Madden and Wrigley who were fastest in the jump-off. Fifteen-year-old Lucas Porter rode Phineas to victory in the $10,000 Mercer Junior/Amateur 1.40m.

 

The ‘National’ Tournament continues through Sunday, June 9. Weekend highlights include the $400,000 CN Reliability Grand Prix, CSI-W, on Saturday, June 8, at 2 pm and the $175,000 Nexen Cup 1.60m Derby on Sunday, June 9, at 2:30 pm.

 

The $35,000 RBC Capital Markets Cup 1.50m was the feature event and was held in the winning round format. The top 25 placed horses from the Enbridge Cup on Wednesday qualified for today’s competition. From the top 25, the top eight returned to compete over a shortened course to determine the winner.

 

Madden and Amadora, a 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare by Chin Chin x Indoctro owned by Abigail Wexner, were clear in the jump-off and able to set the winning time at 42.18 seconds, despite adding a stride to the last jump.

“For sure to the last fence I got a little Edward Scissorhands-ish there!” Madden laughed. “I thought I was going pretty good until after the double combination. I could have been a little faster to the coin (jump) and for sure a lot faster to the last.”

 

Second place went to Enrique Gonzalez (MEX) on Quilebo D Tillard, who were also clear in 43.79 seconds. Meagan Nusz (USA) and Dynamo, owned by Amalaya Investments, were third in a time of 49.47 seconds.

 

Madden is second in the All-Time Money Won List at Spruce Meadows, and her two wins today have helped inch her toward first place, currently held by Canadian Olympic gold medalist Eric Lamaze. Madden won this class last year with another mount, Mademoiselle.

 

Amadora has been in the Maddens’ barn since she was five years old, and it has taken time to get the “sensitive” mare on a consistently winning track. “We knew she always had a lot of quality. She’s been a little bit of a project,” Madden described. “Although she’s very nice to ride, she actually has a lot of blood and a bit of a fight in her. When that fight went in the right direction, we knew we’d have a good horse. It’s been an up and down road, but she’s starting to get more consistent now. We can count on her.”

Enrique Gonzalez had an unfortunate fall outside the ring before the awards ceremony, so he was unable to attend the press conference.

 

Meagan Nusz was there and spoke about her plan going into the jump-off, “I knew the few before me had rails and I knew who was coming behind me. I thought if I could just put in a good, clean round, that would be good for me. This is only my second year to show in the International Ring. My main strategy was just to stay clean.”

 

Nusz has ridden Dynamo for almost three years and said when she brought him to Spruce Meadows last year for the first time, he “grew into himself.” She explained, “He was a completely different horse. He loves the grass, he loves Spruce Meadows, he loves the ribbon presentations, everything about it, which is great for me. He jumps awesome here and gives me a lot of confidence.”

 

Nusz will continue to show at Spruce Meadows before traveling to Europe, where she will represent the United States at the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Madden’s First Win of the day in ATCO Energy Solutions Cup

 

The $35,000 ATCO Energy Solutions Cup 1.45m had the largest starting field of the day with 62 entries, and 10 qualified for the jump-off. Leading the pack with a time of 38.72 seconds was Olympic gold medalist and 2013 FEI World Cup Finals winner Beezie Madden on Wrigley, a 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare by Padinus x Burggaaf owned by John Madden Sales, Inc.

 

Second place went to Jonathan McCrea (USA) and Twisther, owned by Candy Tribble, who had a jump-off time of 39.27 seconds. Katie Dinan (USA) and Grant Road Partners’ Glory Days were third in 39.61 seconds.

Madden said of the track, “It was a tough enough course with the time allowed factor. You needed a little speed in the first round. The jump-off, I didn’t see anybody go, but my husband told me it was quite fast. I just tried to go as fast as I could. I think I was pretty fast from the triple bar to the double (combination), and then I was really fast over to the coin jump.”

 

While Madden just got the ride on Wrigley this year, she knows the mare quite well; former student Callie Schott used to ride the grey mare for her and husband John Madden’s business, John Madden Sales. She described, “Wrigley started very late in her career. She’s had two foals, I think. She wasn’t even broke to ride until she was five years old. She is a little green for what she’s done, but she’s game.”

 

She went on to say, “She’s brave and careful. She’s a naturally fast horse too; she covers the ground pretty quick. You can run her and she stays careful. She has a funny mouth, but she’s not really strong. Like I can not be afraid to run her over to the coin jump and she’s going to slow down when I stop pushing. That’s always a nice feeling.”

Madden said it was nice to win already, and she feels good about showing Simon in tomorrow’s $400,000 CN Reliability Grand Prix CSI-W 5*. The ‘National’ is their first competition back after they won the FEI World Cup Finals in April.

Lucas Porter and Phinas Race to Mercer Junior/Amateur-Owner Victory

 

In his biggest win yet at Spruce Meadows, 15-year-old Lucas Porter of Bartonville, TX, raced through the jump-off on Phineas, an 11-year-old Oldenburg gelding by Lamentos x Quattro B owned by Sleepy P Ranch LLC, to win the $10,000 Mercer Junior/Amateur-Owner 1.40m. He beat 27 entries in the competition and six others in the jump-off for victory in 38.943 seconds.

 

Beatriz Franco Sol (MEX) and Melody de la Fosse set the early pace in 39.085 seconds, which would hold up for second place. Third place went to Catherine Tyree (USA) and Don’t Go, who stopped the timers in 39.573 seconds.

 

Porter recounted, “I knew Beatriz who was leading did nine (strides) from (fences) one to two, which was a turn. With his stride, I could do a fast eight (strides). That’s where I made up my time. Other than that, I basically matched her. She was so fast.”

 

Porter “inherited” Phineas from his older brother Wilton, who rode him for two years. Porter and the bay gelding started together in the Low Junior Jumpers and moved up the 1.40m level. They were selected for the U.S. team at the FEI Junior Nations Cup in Wellington this past March.

 

“He’s just been awesome,” Porter described. “He’s extremely careful, really fast, and he has a little bit of a short stride, but that makes the lines quick. I can do quick adds. He sometimes gets a little spooky, but you just have to ride him through it and he gets over it. Once he’s in the ring, he goes into a different mindset and is all focus.”

Porter credited his trainer John Roche for his biggest win at Spruce Meadows in the three years he’s been coming here. “He’s been an amazing help. I’ve won a couple times, but not as big of a class as this one. It’s pretty amazing. I didn’t actually think I was quick enough in the jump-off, but I guess my kick through the last really did it.”
