Wellington, Florida – February 16, 2019 – Ashlee Bond (ISR) and Ereina produced the only double clear performance to edge two U.S. Olympic veterans and win the $72,000 CSIO5* NetJets Classic at the CSIO5* CP Palm Beach Masters Presented by Suncast. Bond’s win was her second of the weekend at Wellington, Florida’s picturesque Deeridge Farms, as she also took the top prize in Thursday’s $10,000 CSIO5* CP Welcome Stake.
Bond was the first to go in a five-horse jump-off over the 1.55m Alan Wade-designed course, and she jumped clear in 42.32 seconds. Bond said she might have left the door open for the four riders following her, but she explained that she no longer worries about who’s going after her; she just sticks to her plan.
