Candele of Caledon, ON, won the $100,000 Summer Festival Grand Prix on Sunday, August 9, at the CSI2* Summer Festival held at the Caledon Equestrian Park in Palgrave, ON.  From a 24-horse starting field, Candele and Mustique, a 12-year-old chestnut Dutch Warmblood mare owned by Susan Grange, posted the only double clear round to take the victory.

Two weeks later, Candele was once again in the winner’s circle after winning the $75,000 Brookstreet Grand Prix held Sunday, August 23, at the CSI2* National Capital Show Jumping Tournaments in Ottawa, ON.  This time, his mount was Pitareusa, a 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare also owned Susan Grange.  With only two riders advancing to the jump-off round, Candele incurred one time fault to edge out local favourite, Ian Millar, who had eight faults in the jump-off.

“I was very pleased with my group of horses in August, they have all been very consistent,” said Candele, 38, who formerly rode for his native France before receiving his Canadian citizenship in 2008.  “I would like to thank Cavalor for their ongoing sponsorship of 'Athlete of the Month' program.”
