Elkton, Md.—Oct. 20—In the USEF Eventing CCI3*-L National Championship, Caroline Pamacku and HSH Connor (Connor 48 x Galwaybay Merstona) saved the best for last, taking over the lead as the last combination in the division, earning a 25.4 for a significant lead heading into the cross-country phase tomorrow. Lauren Nicholson, yesterday's leader on Landmark's Jungle Gold, piloted her second mount, Larcot Z, a 10-year-old Warmblood gelding (l'Arc de Triomphe x Kocote de la Londe) owned by Jacqueline Mars, to a strong score of 28.2 for second place. Taren Hoffos, who came from California with Regalla, a 12-year-old Oldenburg mare (Sir Donnerhall x Rubiera) owned by Carolyn Hoffos, round out the top three after the conclusion of today, on a 28.6.

Pamukcu and the 7-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, who she owns along with Sherrie Martin and Luann McElduff, competed at the 6-year-old young horse championships at Le Lion in France last year.

"He's still young; it's a big ask for him with all the atmosphere in the cross-country, but we think the world of him. We've had him since the baby," she said.
