Hilary McNerney & Lovelight Claim Bronze Honors in Coca-Cola Trophy at the Sunshine Tour CSIO 3*

Vejer de La Frontera, Spain – October 30, 2021 – Besides the €52,300 Suzuki Grand Prix CSIO 3*, another important class over the weekend was the €25,400 Coca-Cola Trophy CSIO 3* on Saturday, which was valid as a Longines Ranking class. Eighty-two combinations took to the arena in this two-phase class and in the end, the United States was well represented as Hilary McNerney (USA) teamed up with Lovelight to earn bronze honors.

Victory was claimed by German rider, David Will (GER).  David had only arrived recently at the October Tour and with the wonderful Undercover Z, he rode a fast neat round to win the class.  This pair have been competing together for barely 3 months, yet this is the second time they have been on the podium in an international class. 

The British rider Jackson Reed Stephenson (GBR) was riding the lovely Exception and had a really great round, finishing in a well deserved second place. 

The third spot on the podium was claimed by American rider Hilary McNerney (USA) with Lovelight.  These two arrived here at the Montenmedio showgound directly from the USA just last Monday, the 25th of this month, to take part in the Nations Cup team.
