Final Qualifier for the Budweiser American Invitational Tomorrow at the 2009 Tampa Equestrian Festival

Tampa, FL – March 31, 2009 –Tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 p.m. the Covered Arena at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center will host the $35,000 Grand Prix of Florida CSI, the final qualifying event for the $200,000 Budweiser American Invitational. Only the top 35 horses and riders earn the opportunity to compete in the elite event, and tomorrow’s competition will determine the final qualifiers.

After Sunday’s $75,000 Grand Prix of Tampa, Kent Farrington and Darragh Kerins are currently in the lead for the American Invitational standings. Farrington and Kerins had a historical tie for first place in the class, which shot them both to the top of the points. Tomorrow’s class could be very important as some of the top 35 riders are very close in points and need to hold on to their position to compete in Saturday’s class.

The American Invitational is one of the most prestigious events in the equestrian sport, and tomorrow’s competition is sure to be challenging as the nation’s best horses and riders battle it out for the top spots. This class will be the final qualifying event for the $200,000 Budweiser American Invitational CSI 4*, which will be held under lights on April 4 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
