WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, Jan. 24–Lisa Wilcox and Pikko Del Cerro HU won their first outing in a CDI Grand Prix Thursday while Mikala Gundersen and My Lady and Cheryl Meisner and Tango advanced to the World Dressage Masters CDI5*.

Lisa and the U.S.-bred 10-year-old Hanoverian stallion by Pik L scored 69.574 per cent but as it was their first CDI Grand Prix they could not move on to the fifth annual WDM CDI5* that starts Friday.
