Wellington, Florida, USA – February 10, 2023 – Jacqueline Ruyle (USA) and Cyramo Z took another win in the CSI2* ranks this season on Friday. The pair claimed top spot in the CHF$37,000 Griffs Residential CSI 2* 1.45m, a qualifier for Sunday’s Grand Prix CSI 2*.
An impressive seventy-one entries came together to close the day in the International Arena. Seventeen horses qualified for the jump-off with Ruyle and Cyramo Z, a 2011 Zangersheide mare (Clarimo x Vigo D Arsouilles Stx) eventually stealing the win in a time of 43.71 seconds. This pair had also won on the derby field at Equestrian Village during WEF 4.
Second place went to Mckayla Langmeier (USA) aboard Jiselle NS, clocking in at 44.69 seconds for owner Linda Langmeier.
Right on their heels was Francis Derwin (IRL) and his own AHG Whiterock Cruise Down, finishing third in 44.74 seconds.
Ruyle and Cyramo truly shined over the short course, noting, “Honestly, it was not a lot of related distances and very similar to the derby field where we won last week, so I got a really good rhythm and had a patient mind and hoped things would appear.”
The pairs long partnership together was obvious in the ring. Ruyle has been riding the now 12-year-old mare since she was seven years old. “She’s really fast and hot but tries so hard and you can feel how much she gives you, which just makes me want to try even harder.”
Cyramo is well on her way to ending her final week at WEF on a high note. Ruyle, who trains with Daniel Bedoya, will spend one more week in Wellington while Cyramo rests and then return home to Texas.
