Peter Wylde & Campino 103 Outduel 2004 Olympic Gold Medal Team Mate

WELLINGTON, Fla., Feb. 19--Peter Wylde and Campino 103 outduelled 2004 Olympic gold medal team mate McLain Ward and Rothchild to claim his second victory in the $30,000 Braman Motorcars WEF Challenge Cup series Thursday.

Ward, of Brewster, N.Y., filled second place with Rothchild and third place with Phillipa at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.

Of the 73 starters from 10 nations to challenge the course designed by Christa Heibach of Aachen, Germany, 23 went clear to earn a place in the jumpoff.

Wylde, who lives in Wellington and Maastricht, Netherlands, and Campino 103, owned by Wylde and Louisburg Farm, posted a clear jumpoff time of 46.90 secs.

Ward, a gold medalist from both the 2004 and 2008 Olympics, was only 8/10ths of a second off the pace with Rothchild and 6/10ths of a second further back with Phillipa. Both horses are owned by Sagamore Farms.

"My horse is so careful, you can spin him around and he'll try," Wylde said of Thursday's Round VII win which came two weeks after victory aboard Esplanade 7.

"You can really count on him to watch the poles, he's just so careful."

Wylde said he was amazed at Ward's ride on Rothchild.

Ward's horse, the last to go in the jumpoff, exploded after the third obstacle, kicking out over the fence and causing the rider to lose his left stirrup. But he still managed to stay so close.

"I landed without my left stirrup. Trying to hang on slows you up because you can't get out of the tack and let them gallop," Ward said.
