Tanner Korotkin and Quinn Have Wings in Wellington CSI3* 1.45m Speed Class

The Wellington CSI3* 1.45m Speed highlighted Friday, January 13, in the International Arena at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). It was a foot race to the finish, and the win went to Tanner Korotkin for the USA aboard Quinn 33.

The international entry list included fifty-four horses and riders jumping against the clock. Nick Granat (USA) designed a technical 1.45m track, with twelve obstacles total and a time allowed of 72 seconds.

 

The fastest time of the day was posted by 21-year-old Korotkin and his 2010 Holsteiner gelding (Quidam De Revel x Contender). The pair finished just below the minute mark in 59 seconds for owner Eickendorf Horses.  


“The course designer definitely gave us a lot of options to go very fast today,” said Korotkin. “The horse that I’m on, I’m very confident with and we have had a lot of wins recently. I thought it was a very solid course for his style and how he likes to go.”


Korotkin and Quinn have pocketed four international victories together in the short five months they have been partnered. They gave the illusion, however, on Friday that they have spent years together.
