“He is a really nice horse, so I think we have quite a good chance on the team,” Deusser stated. “The last Nations Cup I did was in Calgary last year and we won that one, so I hope we can continue that. Last year Germany won it here also with a really young group, so let’s hope we can do the same this year.”
In the Hollow Creek Farm Young Rider Welcome Stake, Wilton Porter (USA) and Sleepy P Ranch, LLC’s Radio City topped the class with Gabriela Mershad (USA) and Mershad Stables, LLC’s Caprilli HSF finishing second and Manuel Fernandez (DOM) and Aristides Fernandez Zucco’s Maribel H placing third.
The day concluded with the Hollow Creek Farm Children’s Welcome Stake and a sweep for the Venezuelan riders in all top four positions. Constanza Romer and Frederick Romer’s SF Hechicero won the class. Clarissa Chumaceiro and Patricia Cifuentes’ Medium Platiere finished second. Carlos Bechara and Adriana Romer’s Armelle’s Boy placed third, and Mariana Sade and Stransky’s Mission Farms, Inc.’s Ikarus were fourth.
