There was no surprise in the Longines Worldcup competition at the Thunderbird Showpark in Langley BC. The 1.40-1.60m Worldcup Grand Prix was won by Ireland's Conor Swail. Aboard his and Vanessa Mannix' 12-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare, Flower Swail already won two main classes earlier the week.
Swail and his Bon-Ami daughter speeded to victory in 41.68 seconds. Flower (Flower van het Lindenhof) is the full sister of Vulkaan van het Lindenhof. In the past the mare was competed by former STX-rider, Nina Fagerstrom.
Canada's Christopher Surbey ensured some home-joy with his second place. Together with his 9-year-old KWPN-gelding, DAylight VDL (by Baloubet du Rouet) Surbey stopped the clock in 45.48 seconds.
Jamie Barge and Luebbo (by Lord Pezi) followed in a third place and stayed ahead of compatriot, Sayre Happy with Dolinn (by Cardento). Only four combinations produced a clear jump-off round.
The fastest four-pointer was Canda's Jenn Serek with the Eurocommerce Berlin-son, Wicked.
