VANCOUVER, June 1st, 2018
Conor Swail (IRL) caught a flyer to the last and came out on top in the $35,500 CS105* North West Rubber Cup at Thunderbird Show Park, on day two of the 2018 Odlum Brown BC Open in Langlet, BC. The $235,000 Longines Grand Prix and $400,000 Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup of Canada highlight the 5* competition, taking place on Friday, June 1, and Sunday, June 3, respectively.
Swail, 46, rode the 10-year-old Domino van de Valhoeve to victory over an international field of 37. Of the 13 combinations to qualify for the jump-off over the 1.50m track designed by Peter Holmes (CAN), three elected not to return. Swail’s winning time was 35.77 seconds, while young rider Eve Jobs (USA) rounded out the podium with Georgie d’Auvray EC, jumping cleanly in 39 seconds flat.
