Six of competitors made it through round one with no faults and proceeded to the jump off. The shortened track covered 380M and needed to be completed in 57 seconds. Kent Farrington (USA) aboard Orafina proved to be in top form laying down the fastest clear round in the jump off in a time of 44.61s, in front of Juan Jose Zendejas Salgado (MEX) and Giavanna Rinaldi (USA).

"She's a very, very careful horse. It's why I move around between the levels here (Spruce Meadows) and let her experience the big jumps. Being here (Spruce Meadows) gives her a lot of growth" Kent Farrington (USA) said.
