WERRIBEE, Australia, Dec. 8–Heath Ryan rode Regardez Moi to victory on the Intermediaire II at the Saddleworld Dressage Festival Thursday as a warmup to the Pacific League World Cup Final to determine the region’s representative at the Final in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The Netherlands, next April.

Heath and the 15-year-old stallion scored 66.368 per cent ahead of the Grand Prix scheduled for Friday and the Freestyle for Saturday night.

Heath and Regardez Moi will be one of nine combinations–eight Australians and one New Zealander–competing in the CDI-W. Olympian and three-time world championships rider Rachael Sanna and Jaybee Alabaster are favorites after a clean sweep of the three Grand Prix classes at the Australian Championships in October.

New Zealand Grand Prix champion Louisa Hill and Bates Antonello won the Grand Prix at the recent Equestrian Grand Final in Sydney while Chantal Wigan and Ferero will be looking to repeat as league title winners.
