SHOW JUMPING IN CALIFORNIA
Of the nine nations representing today's field, six returned with another chance to post a clean round. "I'm happy with the amount of returners," Petersen commented on the jump-off field, "I didn't want to make it too difficult, but next week is a World Cup Qualifier so there are still riders and horses preparing for that." The crowd was yet again on their feet as Hansen returned to the ring. Kicking off the jump-off track with a new oxer, Hansen guided Archie Bunker through a risky but clean round, posting the time to beat of 44.702 seconds. Brazilian rider Josephina Nor-Lantzman galloped into the ring aboard Chello Z ready to post her infamous swift and clear round. Blazing through the course, Nor-Lantzman looked well on her way to surpass Hansen's time, but with the final charge to the last obstacle, Chello Z had an unfortunate chip on the back rail to finish with a four fault time of 42.554 seconds.
The final round of the day was posted by Paige Dotson and Rockford I. Dotson calmly entered the ring looking over the track to finalize her plan of attack. Dotson was ahead of the leading pace throughout her round, however as Dotson approached the final oxer, she collected Rockford I to guarantee a fault free effort, finishing in 45.345 seconds, good enough for fourth respectively.
The first World Cup Qualifier in California will be held next week during the Showpark All Seasons Summer Classic, August 29-September 2. The $50,000 Showpark World Cup Grand Prix, presented by EQU Lifestyle Magazine, will showcase some of the top West Coast Show Jumpers with hopes of accruing valuable World Cup points as well as HITS Million Grand Prix Qualifying prize money.
