Coudray Wins Eventing World Cup Qualifier

Tiana Coudray, 18, from Carmel Valley, CA, scored the biggest victory of her career when she produced the only clear stadium round to win the FEI World Cup qualifier at Galway Downs CIC-W in front of a crowd of 3,000 in Temecula’s Valle de los Caballos (Valley of the Horses), California.

Coudray, who is aiming to compete at the forthcoming Rolex Kentucky CCI**** on her 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse King Street, said: "It was a very hard course, but we didn’t come here to win. We were just trying to get ready for Kentucky. He is a very good cross-country horse. He was a little strong in the beginning, but settled as we went along."

Runner-up at the 2006 Kalispell FEI World Cup qualifier, Coudray lay fourth after dressage at Galway Downs but finished within the cross-country optimum time of 6min 39sec to lie jointly in the lead on 54.8 penalties with Killian O’Connor riding Jolie Sexson. However, O’Connor later dropped out of the reckoning and Kelly Prather moved up from third to second (61.7) with one rail down on Ballinakill Glory. Jennifer Wooten and her mare, The Good Witch, who competed in the FEI World Cup Final in Malmo, Sweden last year, similarly rose a place to third (61.9).

2002 World Equestrian Games veteran, Gina Miles and her four-star veteran horse, the 13-year-old McKinlaigh, who are entered for Badminton next month, led the dressage phase on 47 but were prevented from going across country because Miles was suffering from a migraine.

Grant Hemingway lay second after dressage on Nieco (52.1), but slipped down the order with 16.4 cross-country time penalties.
