Carly and the American-bred Oldenburg gelding (Rosenthal x Salut) that won the U.S. five-year-old title in 2015 and the four-year-old championship a year earlier, produced the only score above 70 per cent for the division of seven to nine-year-old horses.

Nora Batchelder of Ocala, Florida on Fifi MLW was second on 69.298 per cent with Endel Ots of Wellington, Florida on Lucky Strike third on 68.597 per cent.
