Lindsay Kellock Earns Another Personal Best at AGDF 5

first_imgCanada’s Lindsay Kellock and Sebastien notched a victory today in the FEI Grand Prix CDI 3* Special, presented by CabanaCoast, topping a class of 13 competitive horse-and-rider combinations. Week five of the 2021 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) concludes on Sunday, February 14, at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, FL. The circuit hosts 10 weeks of international and national dressage competition until April 4. Free live streaming and on-demand of select classes are available to view at globaldressagefestival.com.Kellock and the 2006 Rheinlander gelding by Sandro Hit, owned by Enterprise Farm Equestrian LLC and Lindsay Kellock, received a 73.319% from the judges, concluding a momentous weekend for the duo.“I had more confidence going in today based on his performance in the Grand Prix on Thursday,” Kellock began. “He went in and really tried his heart out and gave me a good feeling, which then gave me confidence to ride him a bit more in the ring today. Normally I’m like, ‘Oh, can I do this? Maybe I can push this button?’ but today he just felt so great. I was able to really ride him, take a deep breath, and I think that showed a lot more with those higher scores.”Though the pair didn’t enter an international competition arena for almost 10 months, they spent their time at home perfecting the basics and working on their overall performance together.“[2020 was] a very unfortunate year in many ways,” Kellock explained, “but it was a positive for my horse because he was still green last year. I was really able to work through the training [last] summer and then getting back to work with Ashley [Holzer] in November, ramping up the training then, and having the time to work on weaknesses from last year has been huge for us. We’ve worked really hard at that all summer.”The pair posted a personal best score in the Grand Prix on Thursday with a 72.326% and came back today to earn yet another. “I can’t describe the feeling; it’s amazing,” Kellock admitted. “I couldn’t be happier, and I’m speechless. The horse is an incredible horse, and I’m glad that I’m finally able to bring that out in him.”With Tokyo being their main goal for the year, Kellock will play the rest of the season by ear and focus on what’s best for her mount. “I’m going to go show-to-show with him,” she concluded. “The big plan is to qualify for the Olympics, so I’m going to see how he’s feeling. I think I’d like to do the five star and then after that we’ll see.”Second place in the FEI Grand Prix CDI 3* Special, presented by CabanaCoast went to the USA’s Jennifer Williams on Millione, a 2003 Danish Warmblood gelding by Milan owned by Millione Partners LLC, with 71.979%.

Lionel Messi’s attempts to leave Barcelona could likely result in a legal battle between the two parties. At the last count, Barcelona sacked their legal team for advising the player on how to navigate his exit from the club On Saturday, while Messi did not turn up for testing as scheduled on Sunday morning. The Argentine superstar is now of the position that he is no longer contracted to the club and therefore not obliged to fulfil any contractual agreements, such as showing up for training and matches. Diario Sport now claim that FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport are now likely to become involved when another club attempts to sign the player, and what – if any – demand Barcelona could make. The 33-year-old has a clause in his deal allowing him to leave at the end of any season, and whilst it was thought that deadline passed in June, Marca have reported his camp believe that it has been extended in line with the prolonged 2019/20 season.Advertisement Loading… center_img Read Also: Messi €700m buyout clause at Barcelona still active – La Liga The legalities of Messi’s contractual situation are set to now play a key role with reports claiming his €700m release clause at the club is no longer valid. Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and the current board of the Catalan giants are said to be insistent they will not allow their superstar to leave as a free agent and they will only be prepared to meet with the player to discuss a new contract.
