Wellington, FL – February 5, 2020 – Mexico’s Santiago Lambre opened Week five of the 2020 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) with a win in the $37,000 Douglas Elliman Real Estate 1.45m CSI5* riding Doloris on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, as international competition reaches a peak at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, FL.
Coming off a CSI2* grand prix victory during the opening FEI week of WEF, and the runner-up ribbon in last week’s CSI4* grand prix, Lambre christened week five with another podium finish. Topping 66 horses over a course designed by Anthony D’Ambrosio and Andy Christiansen, Jr., Lambre and his 12-year-old KWPN mare (Harley VDL x Colorado D) posted a blistering fast jump-off time of 24.82 seconds.
“It’s always nice to win the first day!” said Lambre, who created a home base in Wellington with his wife and two children two years ago. “It’s good motivation for the following days that get more and more difficult.”
