Susprite Syrius cantered into the show jumping arena with two rails in hand, but he didn’t need them and jumped a flawless round to earn the 2017 Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI2* title. The 9-year-old Trakehner gelding (Titulus x Slytely Cinnamon) owned by Sunsprite Warmbloods first partnered with Tamra Smith as a 5-year-old and she has brought him up the levels.“I’m thrilled,” said Smith following her win. “He was perfect in every phase and I couldn’t have asked him to be any better.

Time was definitely the deciding factor on Derek di Grazia’s cross-country course at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI3*. In what is often referred to as a three-and-a-half star, there were only four pairs who crossed the finish line under the 10-minute time allowed. The class serves at the USEF National Championship and di Grazia laid out a true championship test for the three-star competitors, but they came prepared and 28 of the 36 pairs finished with only seven different fences causing any problems.
