U.S. Qualifies Horses for Final Leg of 2014 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final

RELEASE: April 20, 2014
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Helen Murray

Lyon, France- The United States will be well represented in final competition of the 2014 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final by seven talented combinations as the U.S. looks to claim their third consecutive victory in the FEI’s only annual championship.

The following combinations will be among the entries to contest Monday’s first round of the final leg of the 2014 Final; from which the top 20 will jump a second round.

Beezie Madden (Cazenovia, N.Y.) will ride Abigail Wexner’s Simon.
Simon is a 1999 Dutch Warmblood gelding.

Leslie Burr-Howard (Darian, Conn.) will ride Jane Clark’s Tic-Tac.
Tic-Tac is a 2003 Belgian Sport Horse stallion.

McLain Ward (Brewster, N.Y.) will ride Sagamore Farms’ Rothchild.
Rothchild is a 2001 Warmblood gelding.

Charlie Jayne (Elgin, Ill.) will ride Alex Jayne and Maura Thatcher’s Chill R Z.
Chill R Z is a 2003 Zangersheide stallion.

Katie Dinan (Wellington, Fla.) will ride Grant Road Partners LLC’s Nougat du Vallet.
Nougat du Vallet is a 2001 Selle Francais gelding.

Charlie Jacobs will ride CMJ Sporthorse, LLC’s Flaming Star.
Flaming Star is a 1999 Irish gelding.

Lucy Davis (Los Angeles, Calif.) will ride Old Oak Farm’s Barron.
Barron is a 2004 Belgian Warmblood gelding.

All seven horses were deemed fit and sound at Sunday’s Second Horse Inspection. Kent Farrington (Wellington, Fla.) also qualified for the final leg of competition but chose to withdraw Amalaya Investments’ leg two winner, Voyeur, and save the 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood for another day.

While Farrington is disappointed not to contest Monday’s final, he knows there is a bright future ahead for the talented gelding.

“My horse is just coming back in to the sport after a break. I’m thrilled with his performance last night and happy to have him back on form,” said Farrington. “I believe this horse has a bright future ahead of him; that coupled with my current standing we decided that it was in the best interest of the horse to focus on the future.”

Co-leader following the second leg of the 2014 Final, Patrice Delaveau of France withdrew Lacrimoso HDC. Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat now stands alone atop the leaderboard on zero faults heading into Monday’s final.
