Rowan Willis and the 10-year-old KWPN gelding Everse W successfully defended their title last weekend in the Sun Life Financial ‘Reach for the Sun’ Derby CSI5* at the Spruce Meadows Summer Series. The unbeatable combination took home the $210,000 prize, and winning the title for the second consecutive year. Willis and Everse W produced two fault-free rounds.

The Sun Life Financial ‘Reach for the Sun’ Derby CSI5* saw a total of 35 competitors, with only three producing clear rounds. The first to secure a clear round was Irishman, Jordan Coyle riding Eristov. The next clear round came from Mexico’s Pizarro and his stunning KWPN stallion, Ares, with the final third clear round coming from Australia’s own, Rowen Willis.

Jordan Coyle and Eristov completed the second round clear and with an efficient time of 37.16 seconds. Nicolas Pizarro unfortunately had two rails, which placed them in third place after Rowan Willis’s clear and fast round of 36.36 seconds.
