The CSI5* ATCO Energy Cup (1.55m) on Wednesday was the first chance for riders to earn points to qualify for the ATCO Queen Elizabeth II Cup Grand Prix on Saturday.

Forty-four horse and rider combinations started the competition in hopes of making it to the winners circle then fifteen combinations qualified for the jump off.

Kent Farrington was determined to make it a win for the USA on the Fourth of July. It was Farrington’s mount Creedance’s first time in the International Ring and he was ready to step up to the plate. The American and the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Lord Z x Notaris) were fast and posted a clear round with a quick time of 38.84 seconds.

Eric Lamaze posted a quick penalty-free jump-off time of 39.80 seconds aboard Chacco Kid, earning silver honors. Quentin Judge (USA) & HH Messenger (Montender x Baloubet du Rouet) rounded out the top three with 42.460 seconds during the tiebreaker.

In a press conference following the class, Farrington explained of Creedance, “I didn’t think that he would be confident enough to jump here the last few years.  He’s grown in maturity and experience so I thought this year I would try.” Farrington continued, " So far he’s been great. That’s his first time in the big ring and I thought he went like a champ, so I hope that that’s a sign of good things.”
