PRESS RELEASE

Bromont, Quebec – July 30, 2016 – Young rider Lucy Deslauriers (USA) scored another victory at the International Bromont ahead of 25 participants on Friday July 29 in the FEI Assante Classic.

Course designer Guilherme Jorge (BRA) once again created an excellent course for the participating riders, as 25 horse and rider combinations started in the event. Nine of those qualified for the second round.

A Female and American Podium

Experienced rider Leslie Howard led Donna Speciale, a young 8 year-old mare with master hands. As the second pair on the course, they were the first to complete a clear round. The jump-off was quickly confirmed as Fernando Martinez (MEX), Ali Wolff (USA), Lauren Tisbo (USA), Richie Moloney (IRL), Lucy Deslauriers (USA) and Peter Leone (USA) successfully get through the first round.

With her young horse, Leslie Howard clocked in a time of 39.94 seconds, leaving the door opened for two other riders, Lucy Deslauriers and Ali Wolff.

Lucy Grabs the Victory

After a seventh place in the Québec Original opening event, the young rider gave it her all. With an unbeatable time of 37.96 seconds in her second clear round, she once again entered the winner’s circle at the International Bromont, with Hester, for the third time in two years.

At just 17 years of age, Lucy will unfortunately not be allowed to compete in the Longines FEI World CupTM Jumping event in Bromont on July 31.
