Hannah Selleck and Barla Take Top Honors in the $38,000 Canadian Pacific Grand Prix
Sunday 04th October 2015 Los Angeles
Hometown favorite Hannah Selleck (USA), the daughter of actor Tom Selleck, rode the only clear in a three-man jump off to hoist the Prestige Trophy on the final day of the Longines Masters of Los Angeles. Riding 11-year-old Oldenburg mare Barla (Baloubet du Rouet x Carthago Z), Selleck rode the deciding round in 36.38 seconds.

“It was a difficult, technical class, you really had to ride,” Selleck said. “It turned out to be a good day for me. I had some luck. My horse performed great, and I was really happy. The Masters is so much fun, it’s a lovely show, and it’s great to have it in my hometown. Barla’s been getting better and better every day here.”

Selleck beat out Ray Texel (USA), aboard 10-year-old mare Baldira (Baloubet du Rouet x Carthago), and Hanna Mauritzson (SWE) riding 10-year-old gelding Parkmore Lux (Lux Z x Coolcorran Cool Diamond), who placed second and third respectively in an original field of 21 riders in the $38,000 Canadian Pacific Grand Prix.

The growing difficulty of the courses will continue into the culminating class of the show, the Longines Grand Prix, starting at 1:30 p.m. Thirty-six of the world’s best riders will tackle the class, hoping to carry the title home.
