Clinching a victory today in the FEI Grand Prix CDI 3*, presented by Wellington Equestrian Realty, was Charlotte Jorst and Kastel's Nintendo, a 2003 Dutch Warmblood stallion (Negro x Rodieni R x Monaco) owned by Kastel Denmark, with a score of 71.300%.

Commenting on her ride, Jorst said, "Nintendo just felt so good today. Even in the warm-up he felt so together, and so ready to go. I think that having had a little bit of a break (last weekend) was really nice for him. He was just ready, and I thought we had a really nice test."

"I don't actually know what I'm going to do yet," said Jorst of her freestyle test that she and Kastel's Nintendo will perform on Friday. "I have new music that I was going to ride through, but I just got it this morning. I'm torn as to whether or not I should do that. It has a little bit of a higher degree of difficulty and a much more fun floor plan for me. I don't know if I will do that, or stick with my old music. It's completely up in the air!"

Placing second was Susan Pape (GBR) and Harmony's Don Noblesse, a 2007 Hanoverian stallion (Dancier x Descana x Don Davidoff) owned by Harmony Sporthorses, with a 70.880%. Third place was awarded to Dawn White-O'Connor (USA), and Legolas 92, a 2002 Westfalen gelding (Laomedon x Furstin x Florenstan II) owned by Four Winds Farm, with a score of 70.560%.
