Mill Spring, NC (June 7, 2019) – Todd Minikus keeps charging ahead on the feisty Amex Z, and it seems there are no limits to their success at the beautiful Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina. During Tryon Spring Week 4, Minikus rode to a faultless performance on the 10 year old Zangersheid mare, Amex Z (Andiamo Z x Landaris) owned by Bit by Bit Group, and won the $36,000 Power and Speed Stake CSI 3* with a time of 28.43 seconds. Following this up in Week 5, the duo charged ahead again and took home the blue in the $36,000 Sunday Classic 1.45m winning with a jump-off time of 33.065 seconds. Then, just when you think they’ve reach their limit, the duo claimed the $72,000 Horseware Ireland Welcome Stake CSI 4* with 36.242 seconds on the jump-off clock.
Minikus says he couldn’t be happier about the circuits in Tryon. “Our whole team is having a great time,” he smiles, “and I’m especially happy with Amex Z.” Tryon International Equestrian Center at Tryon Resort, host of the FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018, is one of the world’s ultimate equestrian lifestyle destinations with first-class facilities for all FEI disciplines and showcasing Hunter/Jumper, Equitation, Steeplechase, Polo, and multidiscipline events in Mill Spring, NC.
