The Chilean rider and former Latino Ranking leader Samuel Parot did the job to get the victory in the $25,000 Tryon Sunday Classic.
Representing the last class of the 2017 Tryon Fall 6 CSI3*, Samuel Parot got the classification for the jump-off round with 8 more riders that would accompany him, to decide the last winner of the week.
Achieving a time of 36.02 seconds with the 15-year-old gelding Couscous van Orti (Nabab de Reve x Cash), Samuel Parot added another victory in the United States of America and within the Tryon International Equestrian Center circuit, securing an award of $7,500 with the first position.
Although the South American rider marked the fastest time of the decisive round, the fight was very even among the three first places, where Samuel Parot was escorted by the veteran American rider Margie Engle and her 17-year-old stallion Bockmanns Lazio (Lancer II x Cor de la Bryere) getting a time of 36.61 seconds.
Equally among the Latino riders Emanuel Andrade of Venezuela was very close in the fight for the first place, stopping the clock in 36.67 seconds with the 12-year-old stallion Ricore Courcelle (Quaprice Bois Margot x Alme), to make clear the Latino domain in the class with the victory of Parot, the third position of Andrade and fourth position by Colombian rider Pablo Mejia with the mare RL Queen Mary in 37.99 seconds.
The top five finishers were completed by American rider Todd Minikus accompanied by the 8-year-old gelding Incitatus (Stakkatol x Con Air) in 38.20 seconds.
The Latino participation was manifested in an important way with the performances of Luis Pedro Biraben from Argentina finishing seventh with the 8-year-old stallion Eres Tu, Fernando Cárdenas from Colombia with the 8-year-old gelding Quincy Too in 11th place, Carlos Myrrha from Brazil in 27th box with the 8-year-old gelding Quintender LS (Quidam by Revel x Contender) and Juan Ortíz with the 10-year-old gelding Copa Cabana (Cartano x Cash) in 30th place.
