Triple Crown® Excellence Award Goes to Endel Ots During AGDF 8 Palm Beach Dressage Derby
Posted on: March 18, 2019    Category  News

Wellington, Florida (March 12, 2019) – Endel Ots and his beloved mount, Lucky Strike, have been wowing crowds and impressing judges for several years across the country. Some could say they’ve been on a “Lucky Streak,” but most know that the harder they work, the luckier they get. The pair’s performance during week 8 of the 2019 Adequan Global Dressage Festival at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby was no exception. Ots and Lucky took first place in the FEI 1* Prix St. Georges with a score of 72.598, which also earned them the Triple Crown Excellence Award. 

As the official feed sponsor of the U.S. Equestrian Federation, Triple Crown’s unwavering devotion to nutritional excellence is not only apparent in its superior feeds, but also in its commitment to supporting all the world class equestrians and their performance horses who have gathered for the season in Wellington, Florida. The Triple Crown Excellence Award is given to a horse and rider team that demonstrates exemplary achievement within the equestrian community, as well as showing exceptionally good health and fitness. Lucky did just that in the show. “Today was really fun,” Ots said about the ride. “It’s the first Prix St. Georges win he’s had. He was really nice and in front of me, and the trot work showed very well.  I was really happy with the test.” 

Named the 2018 National Champion Developing St. Georges, Lucky Strike is just starting his CDI career. Ots said that after this last PSG win, he is looking forward to the I-1. “Competition is really good and very close,” Ots said about the AGDF. “A lot of really good horses and really good riders, and it’s wonderful to be in this group.” Ots’ goal is to be on the Pan Am team this year, and is hoping to make the short list. He was excited to win the Excellence Award. “I’m very thankful to Triple Crown and its continuous sponsorship of the horse show and I love Triple Crown feed!”  

Triple Crown is excited to continue to recognize and support equestrians like Ots, who are so passionate about their horses’ health, well-being and levels of excellence. The renowned feed company was the first to add prebiotics, probiotics, and organic minerals to horse feed, and continues today to deliver the very best in equine nutrition. In addition to sponsoring the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival, Triple Crown Nutrition is also a proud sponsor of the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival.
