New York, New York, USA – April 27, 2019 – Italian Olympian Emanuele Gaudiano (ITA) showed the crowd what it takes to clear a height of 2.01 meters and win the Lamborghini Masters Power Six Bar competition last Saturday.  As the fences rose with each round so did the excitement level in the NYCB LIVE – Nassau Coliseum. As riders attempted to jump ever increasing fence heights, one by one they fell by the wayside until there was only one man left standing.

“This horse has a lot of scope so he was a good choice for this class,” said Gaudiano of Chalou, a 10-year-old Oldenburg stallion (Chacco Blue x Baloubet du Rouet) owned by Equita Kft that would also be his mount for Sunday’s grand finale, the $400,000 Longines Masters of New York Grand Prix.  “He was very powerful because I gave him a nice long break before the show.  He has had one month of relaxing and doing flat work.

“It’s a very nice class for the crowd, they really enjoy it,” continued Gaudiano, 32, who earned a €10,000 bonus for successfully jumping higher than two meters.  “I had a lot of fun because my horse jumped great!”

Kristen Vanderveen (USA) and Bull’s Run Almighty (Caspar x Quidam de Revel) had left all the rails in place but elected to withdraw from the fifth and final round, automatically putting them into second place.  American Jennifer Gates (USA) riding Pumped Up Kicks (Levisto x San Juan) and Swiss ace Pius Schwizer (SUI) aboard Ulane Belmaniere (Muriesco du Cotentin x Timorrak des Isles both faulted in the fourth round to tie for third place.
