WELLINGTON, Florida, Mar. 31, 2016–The Olympic prospect duo of Allison Brock and Rosevelt won the CDI3* Grand Prix Thursday for their second straight victory at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival.

Ali and the 14-year-old KWPN stallion were awarded 73.700 per cent for the win just two weeks after capturing the CDI4* Grand Prix Special. The pair of victories is likely to give Ali and Rosevelt a ticket to go to Europe for compete for a place on America’s team at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in August.

As a stallion, however, U.S. quarantine requirements make it difficult for Rosevelt to remain abroad for more than 60 days.

Ashley Holzer on Breaking Dawn, the horse she rode for Canada at the Olympics in London, placed second on 72.680 per cent, a performance she gave while American owner P.J. Rizvi was on a skiiing vacation.

Ashley admitted, though, that P.J. had “done a great job” in bringing the horse to peak readiness for the final week of the three-month long Global festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.

Lars Petersen was third on Mariett, on 70.840 per cent.

The Olympian continues to ride for Denmark though he now has American citizenship–as does Ashley Holzer. He said he plans to take the 18-year-old mare to Europe for the Danish Championships in June to seek to be on one of the teams at the Nations Cups in Falsterbo. Sweden or Aachen, Germany to try to win selection for the Olympic team.

Ali sid that despite the sub-tropical heat in Wellington, osevelt was “really, really good, very honest and trying hard.”

“I’m so pleased he’s manning up to everything, showing he’s capable of manning up despite rain, thunder and lightning a couple of weeks ago and then manning up when it is so hot a week later,” she said. “I think he’s roud he’s manning up.”
