Yesterday Quentin Judge (USA) rode HH Sandor(11-year-old Hanoverian gelding by Slibovitz x Dux), owned by Double H Farm, to victory in the WEF CSI3*-W 1.45m.
Guilherme Jorge of Brazil is this week's International Arena course designer. There were 53 starters with 16 of those making it through to the jump-off. The fastest was Judge and HH Sandor, who stopped the clock in 57.80 seconds. Second place went to Spy Coast Farm's Rolette and Shane Sweetnam, who finished in 59.75 seconds, while Scott Smith and Vadeline, owned by the Studd Family, finished third with a time of 60.59 seconds.
While HH Sandor has been at Double H Farm for two years, he was ridden by Rodrigo Pessoa last year. HH Sandor came from Germany, where he was competing with an amateur rider in two and three star grand prix classes. Pessoa and HH Sandor won a Suncast 1.50m Classic at last year's FTI WEF, and then Judge got the ride this past summer.
