|Eric Lamaze Named CAVALOR 'Athlete of the Month' for July||| Print ||
August 9, 2010 — Jump Canada has selected Eric Lamaze of Schomberg, ON, as the CAVALOR 'Athlete of the Month' for July.
Within the span of 10 days in July, Lamaze went to number one in the Rolex World Rider Rankings, was named the all-time leading money winner at Spruce Meadows with earnings in excess of $2.7 million, and won both the $200,000 ATCO Queen Elizabeth II Cup at the Spruce Meadows “North American” Tournament in Canada and the €350,000 Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen in Germany. Lamaze achieved both Grand Prix victories riding his Olympic Individual Gold Medal and Team Silver Medal partner, Hickstead, a 14-year-old Dutch Warmblood breeding stallion owned by Ashland Stables and Lamaze’s own Torrey Pines Stable.
“Spruce Meadows was incredible,” said Lamaze, who will represent Canada in two Nations’ Cup competitions in Spain at the end of August and early September. “To win there and then go straight to Aachen and win the most important grand prix in the world a week later – it was like winning a major championship. My four weeks competing at Spruce Meadows were fantastic, and to fly over to Europe and win again was even better!”
“Cavalor’s products are great for my horses, and I am very happy that they are also involved with the sponsorship of this program for Jump Canada,” continued Lamaze, who counts Cavalor among his personal sponsors.
As the CAVALOR 'Athlete of the Month' for July, Lamaze receives a gift certificate from title sponsor CAVALOR Inc.
