Andre Thieme & Cellisto Supreme in $100,000 John Deere Grand Prix at Hits Ocala

Ocala, Florida, USA – February 27, 2022 – The second half of the 2022 Hits Ocala Winter Circuit is underway, with the sixth week of competition coming to a close. The Ocala Masters featured FEI CSI2* competition, the $100,000 John Deere USEF Grand Prix, a $10,000 Diamond Mills Hunter Prix, USHJA Zone 4 Handy Hunter Challenges, and masterful riding all around. Read on for the winners of Week VI’s featured competition.

Andre Thieme followed last week’s big win with another in the $100,000 John Deere Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon. The German Olympian used a careful strategy, navigating his first of two jump-off rides, Cellisto, slowly but cleanly through the jump-off course. Thieme completed the course in 54.315, just under the allotted time of 55 seconds. The run held as the only fault-free trip, adding another win to Thieme’s illustrious resume.
