Mario Deslauriers Cracks The Top 25 At Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games


Tokyo, JPN, Aug. 4, 2021 – Canadian Olympic veteran Mario Deslauriers, 56, of New York, NY, and Bar- dolina 2 (Clarimo x Landos) spared no effort for a 22nd- place finish in the Jumping Individual Final on Aug. 4, 2021, at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan. The Saint-Jean, QC,


native and 12-year-old Hol- steiner mare he co-owns with Wishing Well Farm


LLC were introduced to Spanish Course Designer, Santiago Valera’s twisting challenges and demanding distances in the previous evening’s Jumping Individual Qualifier. After making the top 30 to move on to the Final, riders from 17 nations were faced with the challenge of complet- ing an additional 18 jumping efforts with a maximum height of 1.66 me- tres in 88 seconds. Trouble for Deslauriers and


Bardolina 2 first came at 6b, an im- posing vertical representing the famed Shinkyo Bridge that was the downfall of many a combination coming off a wall at 6a. The next combination also proved problem- atic with rails falling at the square oxer, 8a, which was styled after Japanese Kabuki theatre. A final rail at 13, which featured the blooms of

Colleen Loach Perseveres Under Pressure For Top-30 Finish At Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games


Tokyo, JPN, Aug. 2, 2021 – Colleen Loach of Dunham, QC, and Qorry Blue d’Argouges had a performance to be proud of in the final jumping phase of eventing competition, held Aug. 2, 2021, at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan. Santiago Varela of Spain designed the evening’s winding


courses, which featured fences beautifully decorated to show off elements of Japan and its culture. `Sitting on 42.80 penalties after a solid dressage test and


textbook cross-country phase, Qorry Blue d’Argouges showed he had plenty of gas left in the tank for the Jumping Individual Qualifier. Loach, 38, and the 17-year-old Selle Français gelding owned by Peter Barry and sired by Mr. Blue gunned through the 15 jumping efforts in 75.33 seconds, almost four seconds under the time allowed. Unfortunately, Loach met misfortune at 9b, part of the


combination ironically styled after the good luck charm, Daruma. She skillfully managed 9a – a square oxer that spelled disaster for a significant number of combinations – but brushed the rail out of the cups at the following vertical. A second un-
