New York, New York – April 27, 2019 – Madison Goetzmann (USA) kept cool and calm under pressure to win the $35,700 Equo App Grand Prix CSI 2* last Sunday during the Longines Masters of New York CSI 5*/2* at the Nassau Coliseum in New York, New York, USA.
From the original 26-horse starting field, exactly half managed to jump clear over the track set by course designer Frank Rothenberger and advance to the jump-off. Despite being 18 years of age, Goetzmann (USA) showed composure beyond her years to deliver the winning round, backed by a jump-off performance in 32.82 seconds aboard Prestigious, her 12-year-old Westphalian gelding (Con Cento x Corofino).
“He was incredible!” said Goetzmann of her partner of two years. “He has really been on top form. He hasn’t touched one rail all week. I think that’s one of the faster jump-offs I’ve done on him; he was so game for every inside turn and all the leave-outs and I really couldn’t be happier with him.”
Jonathan Corrigan (IRL) came the closest to catching her time but was still more than two full seconds off the winning pace, clocking in at 34.94 seconds to finish runner-up riding Loughnavatta Indigo (Luidam x VDL Arkansas).
Lindsay Douglass (USA) and Butterfly Tibri Z (Berlin / Silvio II) rounded out the top three with no penalties and a time of 37.16 seconds during the tiebreaker.
