Father's Day Finest - Josephina Nor Lantzman and Chello Z Win Grand Prix; The Excel-ling Continues As Susie Hutchison Wins CashCall Mortgage Futurity
San Juan Capistrano, CA - Today congratulations go to Josephina Nor Lantzman and her own Chello Z for topping a jump-off of twelve competitors in the $30,000 June Classic Grand Prix, presented by St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa.

Danny Foster of Canada designed a jumpable track and wanted it to be enjoyable for all. "I tried not to get a bogey area. I tried to keep the questions uniform. Hopefully we'll get enough clean today and get a nice, fun jump-off."

And that he did. With twelve out of twenty clean, his course produced a solid group of competitive riders vying for the win in front of a beautifully set hilltop VIP tent and grass hill filled with sponsors, spectators and exhibitors.

Justin Resnick and Carismo Z (Carismo Z Group, owners) were first to return. They laid down the gauntlet, clean in 48.54. With eleven more entries attempting to catch Resnick's score, the race was on. Susan Artes aboard Alix Fargo's Zamira had the time but had an unfortunate rail coming out of the combination. Lantzman and Chello Z galloped in fourth. The veteran pair shaved almost two seconds off the leading time, clean in 46.71 for the lead.

Eight more attempted but none could top that time and leave the jumps up. Lane Clarke, last week's winner, made a gallant effort on Charlotte Gadbois' Semira de Saulieu. Like Artes, he had the time, but dropped a rail coming into the combination.

Lantzman complimented the track. "I thought the course was good. Set at 1.45m, not too big, not too small; a nice confident class for a lot of people." Offering the blue ribbon to her dad and coach, she went on to say, "I went inside, was a little slow from one to two but tried to keep going through the rest and hope for the best. Lane went faster than me but unfortunately got a little unlucky with the rail. So we were happy to take home first today. It was the best gift I could've given my dad."

Culminating his first week at Blenheim EquiSports, Foster was duly impressed. "I've never designed here before. It's awesome, really nice, and the show is well-run. Horses jump great here. It's really good for the sport."

Susie Hutchison and SIG Excel Victorious in today's $7,500 CashCall Mortgage Futurity
Unbeatable more often than not, SIG Excel and Susie Hutchison were last to go in a jump-off of four. Stopping the clock clean more than 1.3 seconds faster than the leaders Bull Run's Alli Lu Ya and Kristen Vanderveen, the successfully speedy pair took over the top spot, with Vanderveen placing second. Also double clear but not as fast, Jucal and Guillermo Obligado picked up third.
