$265,000 Longines Grand Prix Friday in Ocala

Ahead of this weekend’s CSIO5* Longines FEI Nations Cup qualifier in Ocala, Florida, top riders will face off in Friday’s $265,000 Longines Grand Prix. 

Many top riders are in Ocala this weekend, and while a photo shared by Eric Lamaze showed some rain during a jog with Fine Lady 5, the forecast for Friday is mixed skies with a high of 26° celsius. 

As the local newspaper reported, “A Parade of Nations event in downtown Ocala on Saturday will welcome competitors from around the world for Sunday’s Longines FEI Nations Cup event at the HITS Post Time Farm west of Ocala.”

“The Nations Cup, which will take place Sunday at the HITS Post Time Farm at 13710 US 27, west of Ocala, will feature more than 30 riders from seven nations. The opening ceremony for the $450,000 purse event will begin at noon. The competition will begin at 1 p.m.” Photo below by Starting Gate Communications.
