Del Mar, CA -
Congratulations to Josephina Nor Lantzman and Chello Z, winners of the $50,000 Grand Prix of Showpark, presented by Equ Lifestyle. With twenty-one entries competing for the top prize in the World Cup Qualifier, the crowd in Del Mar was treated to a display of talented riding over Canadian Michel Vaillancourt's extensive track.
With sixteen efforts in a time allowed of 86 seconds, the course was a test of endurance as well as athleticism for both horse and rider as they attempted clean rounds. Josephina Nor Lantzman aboard her faithful partner Chello Z (owned by Josephina Nor Stables, LLC) proved to be the fastest in the jump-off, zipping around the course on the 14-year-old Zangersheide gelding (Chellano Z x Alme Z) in 41.15 seconds. Susan Artes guided Alix Fargo's Zamiro, a 10-year-old KWPN gelding (Lupicor x G. Ramiro Z) in 42.54 to claim second.
