Wellington, FL – March 15, 2019 – Santiago Lambre and Charatinus outpaced a field of 70 entries to win the $36,000 Bainbridge 1.45m Classic CSI 3* on Friday, March 15, at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, FL.
Speed was the name of the game for competitors contesting Michel Vaillancourt’s (CAN) course in Friday’s one-round $36,000 Bainbridge 1.45m Classic CSI 3*. Brazil’s Rodrigo Lambre set a quick time to beat from the get-go, stopping the clock in a clear 60.64 seconds aboard Chapilot as the fourth entry in the class. It was not until 19 trips later that Rodrigo Lambre’s time was toppled by fellow Brazilian Fabio Leivas da Costa who set the new leading time at 59.35 seconds aboard Randon Pleasure.
