Eric Lamaze
Eric Lamaze was a very successful junior and hunter rider, working with a number of top trainers including George Morris, Roger Deslauriers, Hugh Graham and Jay Hayes. His own natural eye for distance has made him very effective since entering the Grand Prix ring in 1992. Just one year later, he was named to the Canadian equestrian showjumping team.

In 1994 he was sensational. In only his third year of Grand Prix competition he earned a spot on Canada`s team at the World Equestrian Games and finished second in the Canadian World Cup League standings.

However disaster struck Lamaze in 1996. He couldn`t go to the Atlanta Olympics because of a suspension for using cocaine. He was banned for four years after a urine test taken at the Canadian equestrian Olympic trials in June 1996 turned up positive. However, his suspension was reduced to seven months after he appealed on the grounds he took cocaine four times in the three months before the trials for personal use rather than to gain any competitive edge.

He won the final Olympic trial event in July upon the 10-year-old German-bred gelding Millcreek`s Raphael. Eric Lamaze operates Torrey Pines Stables in Schomberg, where he coaches many promising show jumpers, including Grand Prix rider Ainsley Vince.

Eric Lamaze Named Canadian National Showjumping Champion


Calgary, Canada, June 5, 2000--`Captain Canada` Ian Millar couldn`t be beat today winning both feature events in the International Ring on the final day of the Spruce Meadows "National". No one was able to tame the Shell Cup derby course so it went to a four-horse jump-off with horses that finished with one rail down. Before a crowd of 36,502 people, Millar neatly won the event, beating Mario Deslauriers by 3 seconds.
Millar also won the ATCO Structures Double Slalom but Richard Spooner of Burbank, California on Davinci gave him a run for his money. Millar triumphed five times on Roulette to take home the title in the ATCO Structures Double Slalom.

Fellow Canadian Eric Lamaze was unable to repeat his 1999 win in the Shell Cup, however he finally tasted victory at the Spruce Meadows "National" as he became the new Canadian Show Jumping Champion. Lamaze previously won the title in 1995.

Hap Hansen of Encinitas, California finished on top in the Spruce Meadows Show Jumping Championship. Hansen is number three on the All-Time Top Money Winner list at Spruce Meadows and has been competing at Spruce Meadows since the late seventies.

Jay Hayes of Cheltenham, ON, and Diva proved they are on track for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games by winning the first of
five Selection Trials yesterday at the Spruce Meadows National tournament in Calgary, AB.

In a strong field of international competitors, 1992 Olympian Hayes, 42, was one of five combinations to advance to the jump-off in todays
Canadian Pacific World Cup Qualifier, which acted as the first Olympic Selection Trial for the Canadian Show Jumping Team. A second clear round with the 10-year-old Hannoverian mare, owned by Uplands Farm, in a time of 45.90 seconds secured him the win.

Jill Henselwood, 37, of Oxford Mills, ON, also posted a clear second round, but her time of 47.20 with Toyzrus, a 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare, couldnt catch Hayes.

John Pearce, 40, of Stouffville, ON, also went clear with his veteran15-year-old Jamcos Vagabond, but a .25 time fault prevented them from advancing to the jump-off.

Jonathon Millar, 25, of Perth, ON, had the same problem with the11-year-old stallion Fine Line, incurring .75 time faults. With four faults apiece, tying them for fifth place in the Selection Trial standings, are Eric Lamaze, 32, and Millcreek Raphael, Amy Millar, 23, and Manhattan and proud father, six-time Olympian Ian Millar, 53, riding Dorincord.

The second Olympic Selection Trial takes place June 25, in Bromont, PQ, site of the 1976 Olympic equestrian events. The four-member team plus one alternate will be named following the final Selection Trial on July 30 in Palgrave, ON.
