October 20, 2019 – Del Mar, CA – Wrapping up Del Mar International World Cup Week on Sunday afternoon was the $25,000 GGT Footing Grand Prix Series Final Legacy MARKEL Tour Super Championship. A 56-strong field of horses and riders tried their luck at Alan Wade’s course consisting of 16 efforts including one double and one triple combination.

The course proved quite challenging, and only five pairs advanced to the jump off. Professional Cassio Rivetti took the win aboard Kaiser, a 9-year-old chestnut warmblood stallion owned by Neil Jones Equestrian.

“He was very good today,” said Rivetti. “He jumped so well first round and was fast in the jump off.” Rivetti has had Kaiser for the past four years and said that the stallion is still a bit green, but he’s looking forward to the future with this young horse.

Rivetti also earned the most points in the 2019 GGT Footing Grand Prix Series and will receive $7,500 in credit for 2020 West Palms Events shows.
“I didn’t expect to win so this really nice,” said Rivetti.

In second place was Ashlee Bond aboard Contefina LVF owned by Little Valley Farms. In third place was Vanessa Hood and Gentille Van Spieveld owned by Take Two LLC.
