The $35,000 1.45m Power & Speed CSI 5* saw top honors awarded to Santiago Lambre (MEX) and Casino N, as the pair dashed through the finish to stake claim on the first FEI class of the week. Lambre and the 2007 Swedish Warmblood gelding (Careful x Nicky), owned by Aurora De Alba, completed the short track in 31.695 seconds, ending the day at the top of the leaderboard.
“I went toward the beginning of the class,” commented Lambre, “I think that helped us a bit because the class was long with over 60 riders. I thought that the course was technical with the double vertical in the second phase, so it wasn’t so easy for us.”
The horse belongs to Lambre’s wife, Aurora, but he took over the ride for her as she is currently expecting a baby. “Casino is for my wife and I started to ride him about 6-months ago. He is a High Amateur horse, and she will start to ride him again when we get to Wellington,” he said.

Second place was captured by Luiz Francisco De Azevedo (BRA) and his own Collin, a 2007 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Colandro x Oberlina) in 32.064 seconds, while Shane Sweetnam (IRL) rounded out the third-place position aboard Don’t Touch Du Bois, a 2009 Belgian Warmblood mare (Kashmir Van Schuttershof x Virginia), owned by Sweet Oak Farm, Spy Coast Farm, and Paul Tracy, stopping timers in 33.284 seconds.
