OTTAWA, Ontario, May 29, 2015–Brittany Fraser on All In moved closer to securing a place on Canada’s Pan American Games team with victory in the CDI Prix St. Georges Friday on a score of 74.474 per cent that is the highest for the pair in more than two years in any small tour competitions including the Intermediate Freestyle.

Brittany and the 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding received a mark of 76.974 per cent from Elizabeth McMullen of Canada and a low of 72.632 per cent from Jane Weatherwax of the United States but two German judges each gave the pair identical marks of 73.947 per cent.

Diane Creech on Robbie W who has led Equine Canada’s Pan American Games small tour standings for the year placed second on 73.105 per cent with Chris von Martels on Zilverstar who slipped back to third in the standings from second place last week scored 71.921 per cent for third place.

The 26-year-old Brittany has saved the best performances for All In until the last month when the pair moved up from sixth in the standings to second before the start of this show and, depending on the results from Saturday’s Intermediate 1 could move to the top of the leaderboard.

On Furio, she was on the highest placing Canadian team at the 2007 North American Young Rider Championships.

She had planned to move All In to Grand Prix this year but on the advice of her coach, top Canadian rider Ashley Holzer, she delayed until after the Pan Ams.

The Int. 1 is the final competition to count for the standings ahead of selection of the team of four riders and horses for the Pan Ams that will be held in Toronto in mid-July. The championships are held once every four years.

Qualification criteria counts the four best scores but must include at least one from Prix St. Georges and Intermediate 1 that will both be required for the Pan Ams.

The Games will implement mixed Big and Small Tour combinations for the first time, and teams competing for a place at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro must include a Grand Prix horse at the Pan Ams.

However, teams that do not win the single Olympic spot can qualify one rider from the Pan Ams and can seek to qualify two other pairs in rankings so that would give them a right to form a “composite” team.
