Patricio Pasquel (MEX) & Pomerol won the RBC Capital Markets Cup CSI 5* last Friday during ‘The National’ at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Canada.
The Mexican and the 9-year-old bay Selle Français stallion (Vivaldi x Serenade) were victorious in the 1.50m jump-off challenge by posting the fastest penalty-free performance in the decisive round, going through the timers in 48.440 seconds.
Second place was claimed by Michael Morrissey (USA) & Chance Ste. Hermelle (Calvaro x Hemmingway) with no penalties, being a half-second slower than the eventual winners in the tiebreaker.
Ali Ramsay (CAN) & Casino (Casiro I x Ludwig von Bayern) rounded out the top three as the only other combination that registered two flawless performances, crossing the finish line for the second time in 50.810 seconds.
