ARTURO PARADA VALLEJO TAKES THE EL PALACIO DE HIERRO TROPHY

ARTURO PARADA VALLEJO TAKES THE EL PALACIO DE HIERRO TROPHY

The CSI2* competition continues today at the LGCT Mexico City.  In a repeat performance of yesterday, Arturo Parada Vallejo (MEX) and the Westphalian stallion Cornet’s Dream were double clean and quick to take the El Palacio de Hierro Trophy.

Sixty-four competitors rode Anderson Lima’s (BRA) sixteen effort course.  Ten riders went around without lowering the height of any obstacles, however two of them scored time faults.  Eight returned for an exciting jump-off that resulted in six double clear rounds.  Female show jumpers from Mexico represented four of the six, Maria Fernanda Hegewisch, Carla Buch Molina, Luciana Gonzalez Guerra and Tanimara Macari Carrillo, finishing third, fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.

After winning the CSI2* Banorte Trophy speed class yesterday, Vallejo once again stopped the clock over a second faster than second place Marcelo Galan (MEX) and Intero Oh for his second victory in two days.

Two more CSI2* classes, the CDW Trophy 1.20m and the Mazda Trophy 1.45m, will wrap up a fabulous event today here in Mexico City.
