Two Withdrawals in 4* Divisions Ahead of Bromont Show Jumping Finale

It was a quiet morning for the Sunday horse inspections at the MARS Bromont CCI Three Day Event. Across all divisions — CCL2*-L U25, CCI2*-L, CCI3*-L, CCI4*-S, and CCI4*L — no horses were held for re-inspection. Nevertheless, we still have two significant changes to the leaderboard in each of the four-star divisions.

Liz Halliday-Sharp, who was placed second in the 4*-L aboard The Monster Partnership’s Cooley Moonshine, did not present the horse at the inspection this morning. This moves Canada’s Jessica Phoenix into second place in this division with Wabbit on a score of 40.3, and gives leader Jennie Brannigan and Twilightslastgleam a rail and a few seconds of time in hand as they sit on a score of 34.2.

Liz remains the leader of both the CCI2*-L and CCI3*-L divisions on Miks Master C and Cooley HHS Calmaria, respectively. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out yesterday’s cross country report for the full story of how yesterday’s tracks shuffled the standings.

In the 4*S, second placed Dom Schramm and the Bolytair B, representing Australia, also withdrew ahead of the jog. This leaves just four horses in total to jump in this division. Compatriot Ryan Wood and Cooley Flight now sit second, just one rail behind Valerie Pride and Favian who lead on a score of 50.9.

Show jumping is now underway starting with the CCI2*-L under 25 division, which is led by Ayden Schain and Fernhill Hole Shot, and we’ll be brining you a full report from all divisions at the end of the day!
