Pikko del Cerro HU (Pik L- Rohweena by Rohdiamant) ridden by Lisa Wilcox cruised to the win in the FEI Intermediaire II Test by nearly four percentage points. Horses Unlimited's nine-year-old Hanoverian stallion, a Markel/USEF  National Young Horse Dressage Program graduate, impressive powerful gaits but mistakes in the extended canter and the one-time changes kept them from earning higher than the 70.746% they scored. "I'm very, very happy the mistakes were mine...He was not quite in front of my leg like I needed him to be," said the Loxahatchee, FL resident.  Wilcox feels confident that she can fix the mistakes from today in Saturday's test with the 2011 USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championship presented by The Dutta Corp. and Performance Sales International.

"I was very happy with my passage-piaffe tour. The extended was unfortunate and we'll clean that up without a problem. The ones are usually good and clean, so we'll just clean that up a bit as well for Saturday."

Endel Ots (Wellington, FL) and Taunia Reed's Agastrofos (Briar 899-Hera by Nocturne 877) were second with a 66.842
