Kristjan Good of Campbellville, ON, swept the top three placings in the $10,000 Canadian Hunter Derby Series Open Hunter Derby, presented by Pepsi, on Friday, July 12, during the CSI2* Ottawa International I at Wesley Clover Parks in Ottawa, ON.

Good, 30, and Chantilly Lace were the defending champions of the class, and they repeated their winning performance on Friday evening, topping the class with a base score of 88 and 19 high option and handy bonus points for an overall score of 107.

Coming the closest to the score earned by Chantilly Lace, an eight-year-old Canadian Sport Horse mare sired by Cabardino and owned by Shannon Walter, was another of Good’s mounts, Salvo RSF.  Good and the seven-year-old Oldenburg gelding, sired by Sir Gregory and owned by Cydney Pavan, were the first entry to contest the Rob Carey-designed course set on the spacious grass grand prix field, and they set the score to beat at 104, including a base score of 85.

Given the nickname “the derby whisperer” for a reason, Good rounded out the top three spots with a base score of 81.5 and a total of 100.5 points aboard Vanderbilt, a six-year-old Holsteiner gelding sired by Castelan I and owned by Katie Sheedy.

Finishing behind Good’s top three placings in fourth with an overall score of 100 was Amanda Harris of King City, ON, aboard Parkland, owned by SH Equine, while fifth place with a score of 95 went to Sam Walker of Nobleton, ON, and Charlie Rose, owned by Nicole Weatherall.

Weekend highlights at the CSI2* Ottawa International I include the $36,000 CSI2* Classic, presented by RBC, on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and the $5,000 Canine Equine Relay, presented by Royal LePage Realty and featuring dogs from Dogz Canine Sports Centre, at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 14.  Prior to the popular Canine-Equine Relay, a special “Meet and Greet” with 10-time Canadian Olympian Ian Millar will be held on Sunday, July 14, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
