The Del Mar Fall Festival wrapped up on Sunday after a fantastic week of the noble sport at the beautiful Del Mar Horse Park.

High-level competition began on Thursday with the running of the $22,500 1.40m Welcome. It was a fiercely contested power and speed class with 55 entries, but when the smoke cleared, Cassio Rivetti (BRA) emerged victorious aboard Kaiser, owned by Neil Jones Equestrian.

Taking reserve champion honors was Keri Potter (USA) and Arielle La Sirene owned by Hannah Loly, and in third place was Lindsay Archer (USA) and Jarpur, owned by Rhys Farms LLC.

Rivetti came into the Finals in the lead, earning 133 points during the seven qualifying classes. “The Markel Insurance Jumper Classics are a good series. It’d be nice to have more sponsors to put on classes like this. It is a good format that builds up to a final where consistency pays off,” Jones commented.
