Mill Spring, NC – October 27, 2017- Santiago Lambre (MEX) consistently wins at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), and his streak continued with Thursday’s $35,000 Suncast®
Commercial Welcome Stake CSI 3*, as he piloted two mounts to top finishes over 56 entries. Aboard Doloris, a 2008 Dutch Warmblood mare (Harley VDL x Colorado D), he placed first, stopping the short-course timers at 37.64 seconds, while his second mount, Dingeman, finished in sixth place after finishing in 40.606 seconds with four faults.
Second place honors went to Eve Jobs (USA) and Charleville, a 2007 Dutch Warmblood gelding(Quasimodo Z x Lancelot), finishing the short course in 38.98 seconds, while Taylor Land (USA) and For Edition, a 2000 Hanoverian stallion (Forsyth Frh x Leggiero), were awarded third place honors after their 39.17 second short-course trip.

The baton will instead be passed to Dingeman, a 2008 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Nintender x Darnels), for this week’s $130,000 Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport Grand Prix CSI 3*, where he hopes his consistency will pay off, Lambre commented.
Despite his mounts’ familiarity with the venue, Lambre concluded that the classes still remain fresh and interesting thanks to new obstacles on course: “This facility is unbelievable and we have new fences every week, and new things to look at. It is one of the best places to show.”
Sydney Shulman and Villamoura Achieve Victory in $6,000 1.40m Power & Speed CSI 3*
The week began with a victory in the $6,000 1.40m Power & Speed CSI 3* for Sydney Shulman (USA) and Jill Shulman’s 2009 Warmblood mare Villamoura (Dianant De Semilly x Kasina), after completing the jump-off track in a brisk 25.477 seconds. Kristen Vanderveen (USA) maintained a steadfast lead until the end of the class, but still ended the afternoon in second place after a jump-off round of 26.002 seconds aboard Bull Run Jumpers Six LLC’s Bull Run’s Divine Fortune, a 2009 Dutch Warmblood mare (Padinus x Amhilavsca Fortuna). Shawn Casady (USA) and Zephyr, a 2004 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Landor S x Tobelia), owned by Wyndmont Inc., rounded out the top three after completing the short course in 26.035 seconds.

“The track was suited, in my opinion, for a smaller horse today,” commented Shulman. “They gave you the options to add if you want to add to the verticals or to the combinations. I fortunately had two smaller horses in the class and it really suited them. After I watched Kristen and Shawn ride, they’re both on massive horses and I didn’t think there was anyway that I was going to match that, but Villamoura is really quick across the ground.”
