First International Ring Win for Local Rider Eric Krawitt (CAN)

The ATB Cup was the final competition of the 2022 Spruce Meadows 'National', presented by Rolex. FEI Course Designer Anthony d'Ambrosio set out a track to test the athletes and three answered the call. Despite a pause in the competition to allow some severe weather to pass, Eric Krawitt (CAN), Mario Deslauriers (CAN) and Jose Antonio Chedruai (MEX) rode clear rounds and qualified for the jump off. After the brief but severe downpour, Chedraui elected to save his horse for another day and it was down to two.

Delauriers laid down a safe clear ride with Filip de Wandel his former Emerson in a time of 44.12s putting the pressure on Krawitt to be fast and clear. At seventeen years of age, Krawitt was up for the challenge. Aboard Cactus de Cosniere, the young up-and-comer rode the jump off like a pro and was clear in a time of 41.53s claiming the victory. The 'National' Tournament was Krawitt's first 5* event.

The stage was completed by Jose Antonio Chedraui Prom and Dutch rider, Bas van der Aa his former ride, Haraminka P.

"Putting in some good rounds earlier this week gave me a lot of confidence. It's very special win" - Eric Krawitt (CAN) on his win in the ATB Cup.
