Just watched the CN at Spruce Meadows. The richest prize in showjumping. It was the best finish ever. Two horses went double clear and into a jump off. US McLain Ward on the beautiful, ridable Sapphire and Canadian Eric Lamaze on the incomparable Hickstead. Sapphire won by 2/100ths of a second, both on clears. The chestnut mare vs. the rubber ball stallion. Both so very different in every way. It was exciting.

Just wish the commentators would include the horses a bit more and give them top billing along with their bloodlines and other intersting tidbits of interest to horselovers.
