HERNING, Denmark, Mar. 9, 2018–Kristy Oatley and her Olympic mount Du Soleil on Friday added to the combination’s pre-selection results required for a place on the Australian team for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina in September.

Kristy and the 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding scored 69.261 per cent for fifth place in the CDI3* Grand Prix, the first combination to log three results meeting the minimum score requirement to go on to designated selection events for Australia, though only two results of at least 69 per cent are necessary.

The Germany-based rider had earlier posted two qualifying scores–70.239 per cent at the World Cup Grand Prix in Neumünster, Germany Feb. 17, 2018 and 69.520 per cent at the World Cup Grand Prix at this same venue Oct. 21, 2017.

Equestrian Australia requires combinations to compete in at least three pre-selection events–one in 2018–and achieve a minimum of two so-called threshhold scores of 69 per cent by April 30 in Australia and Europe and a month earlier in North America.
