Las Vegas Events, Inc., producer of the 2015 FEI Jumping and Dressage World Cup Finals, is establishing the John Quirk Cup to be presented to the winner of the $75,000 Grand Prix of Las Vegas at the event, next April 15-19. The John Quirk Cup is being established in memory of John Quirk, a west coast show jumping horse owner, breeder and magazine publisher who played a leading role in bringing the FEI World Cup Jumping Final to Las Vegas in 2000. John believed that hosting the World Cup Final in the “Entertainment Capital of the World” would help promote the equestrian sport like never before and that first Final in Las Vegas was such an overwhelming success that the FEI returned it there in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009, adding the dressage Final in 2005 for unprecedented dual Finals that is now a regular occurrence in the sport.
