Richard Spooner and Quirado RC Win $137,000 FEI 1.55m at DIHP

first_img Email* The sixth week of competition at the Desert International Horse Park concluded Sunday with the $137,000 FEI 1.55m CSI3*, sponsored by Adequan. Serving as the highlight class of the afternoon, the final FEI class of the week challenged thirty-two horse and rider pairings representing eight nations, each hoping to claim a podium position. Leading the victory gallop after producing the only double-clear ride was USA’s Richard Spooner aboard Quirado RC (Quinar x Ursula).Top course designer Alan Wade (IRL) built a challenging and technical course for riders to contest. The thirteen obstacle track composed of a double combination, a triple combination, and many twists and turns that required athletes to constantly be looking towards the next fence. It wasn’t until twelfth in the order, Eric Navet (FRA) and Cadillac Jack (Cantoblanco x Cordina), that we would see the first clear ride. Many riders fell victim to four faults, keeping them out of jump-off contention. Only two additional riders would add their names to the jump-off list: Kaitlin Campbell (USA) and Spooner.“I think it was a good course. It was kind of different. I gotta say it was a little funky, not in a bad way. Alan is a buddy so not in a bad way. It was very twisty and turny and looping back around,” explained Spooner. “A lot of times you will have straight lines where you have to make a lot of choices and decisions. Today, it was a lot of bending and sweeping and swooping. I think that kind of suits me, so I had my plan and I stuck with it.”Wade’s shortened course continued with the day’s theme of twists and turns. Serving as the pathfinder, Navet had an unfortunate rail at the third jump in the course. Campbell was next and ended in similar fate with a rail down at fence four in the jump-off. Spooner was last to go and produced the only double-clear ride of the class with a time of 46.75 seconds, ultimately earning the lion’s share of the prize pool.Spooner’s mount, Quirado RC is a twelve-year-old American Holsteiner gelding owned by Show Jumping Syndications International. The pair have an impressive resume together with multiple wins including a Nation’s Cup win in Vancouver in 2019.“To have support like that for twenty-five years is amazing,” expressed Spooner. “I have just been lucky in the sport and lucky with the people I have known and the horses that I have gotten to be associated with and this horse is no different. This horse has been absolutely spectacular and he continues to impress. He has a ton of scope and is very careful. I’m just lucky to keep doing this.”Capturing second place was Campbell and Doraindo with a four fault score and time of 42.89 seconds. Doraindo is a thirteen-year-old Dutch Warmblood by Labor’s VDL Indorado out of Siloma and is owned by SWS Training & Sales. Finishing third was Navet and Signe Otsby’s Cadillac Jack, an eleven-year-old Oldenburg gelding, with a time of 45.56 seconds and a four fault score. Darrin Dlin was the top Canadian aboard Buddy Bounce in 6th place.FEI competition will resume during Week VIII of Desert Circuit and will feature the $250,000 FEI 1.55m CSI4* on Sunday of competition.To view the full results of the $137,000 FEI 1.55m CSI3*, visit Showgrounds Live.

Dr Terry Sharp,

first_imgWhen eating bread, most of us probably don’t think about the empty space in it, but rather whether we like its texture and flavour. Yet both of these are driven by bubbles. This is because one of the key aims when mixing is to ensure that air is trapped in the dough and, for sandwich and toast bread, we want the air to be evenly dispersed.After mixing, dough is moulded and proved. In these steps the dispersion of air is modified, with a few of the bubbles collapsing, while most increase in size, so expanding the volume. At this stage, the bubbles are filled with both air and carbon dioxide gas from fermentation. When the dough is baked, further expansion occurs as the water boils to steam.More regular bubbles ensure there are no large holes in the bread crumb, creating an even texture and a softer eating quality, so it is important to consider which factors might cause a change to their number and size. Among the many is the inclusion of bran in the dough, either through the use of wholemeal flour, or directly. Bran is ’thirsty’ for water, reducing the amount available for gluten development; we need this to create enough strength in the dough to stop the bubbles bursting as they expand. Also, the pieces of bran physically interrupt the gluten network, again reducing its ability to hold the bubbles. We overcome some of these problems with the use of ingredients, such as fat and emulsifiers.—-=== Dr Campbell says: ===”Bakers have made great strides in producing much more palatable wholemeal breads. Nevertheless, the vast majority of bread sold and eaten is still white, so it cannot be claimed that the problem has been solved. The amount of research devoted to wholemeal bread is a tiny fraction of that devoted to white bread. Understanding bubble behaviour, which has been so beneficial to white bread research, may well bring further improvements to wholemeal breads. Because this is a new and relevant way of viewing this type of bread, it is bound to give new insights that might translate into commercial applications that would indeed improve consumption.”last_img read more

Odds & Ends: Cameron Diaz Is a Foul-Mouthed Hannigan & More

first_img View Comments Cameron Diaz Owes Quvenzhane Wallis $$$ …Or vice versa? When the new Miss Hannigan stopped by Late Night earlier this week, she seemed a little too into yelling at kids…and cursing. “They are in an adult situation,” she told Seth Meyers of the youngins playing the foster kids. “If you don’t like how adults talk, don’t be in an adult situation. That’s how I do.” Apparently, she also tried a really backwards version of the swear jar, in which those who don’t drop f-bombs have to put in money. So remember, kids: You’re never fully dressed without a f*cking smile.

Oyster Pond Dredging Project on the Table

first_imgThe Pohogonot Trust, of Wayland, Mass., is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to excavate a channel from Oyster Pond in Edgartown, Mass., to the Atlantic Ocean.The excavated channel is proposed to measure 6 feet to 10 feet wide and up to 200 feet long.According to the Corps, excavated sand is to be placed adjacent to the created channel with 1,200 to 1,400 square feet of sand being placed below the high tide line (HTL). The pond is at a higher elevation than the ocean and the applicant expects that sand will be flushed into the ocean after a channel is excavated causing the channel to widen even further.The applicant is requesting a permit with a 10-year term with up to 4 channel openings occurring per year due to the typical natural closing of the channel within days to a month from opening.The purpose of the work is to reduce flooding risk to properties surrounding the pond. According to the applicant, the pond water level periodically rises to a level that can flood residential infrastructure surrounding the pond.Public comments on this work proposed by the Pohogonot Trust will be received by October 5, 2017.last_img read more
