VANCOUVER-LANGLEY - the ten-year-old Orafina (For Fashion x Canturo), bred by the VDL Stud and Y. Walda from Wommels, won the CSI05* $235,000 Grand Prix over 1.60m in Vancouver-Langley under rider Kent Farrington (USA).
Previously, the very talented Orafina also won the CSI3* Grand Prix over 1.60m of Wellington and Grand Prix of Palm Beach (USA). Last March, the mare placed first and second in the CSI5* 1.55m Grand Prix in Wellington, which has also brought her a large amount of prize money.
Gisborne VDL, the son of Zirocco VDL x Goodtimes bred by the VDL Stud, finished ninth under Hyde Mofatt (CAN). Last year Gisborne VDL finished sixth in the World Cup competition in Live Oak, USA. Zinnie (Gisborne VDL x Cortez) was declared champion of the three-year-old jumping mares in Sweden a year earlier. Zinnie was bred by Lars Ake Persson and Ann Laven (SWE).
