Shane Sweetnam was a consistent money winner this week in Spruce Meadows, ending the week with a double clear 2nd place win on Spy Coast Farm’s Chaqui Z in the $126,000 Imperial Challenge. Earlier in the week this same pair was 3rd in the 1.50m Cargill Cup. Spy Coast Farm’s Cyklon 1083 was also consistently in the money – 4th and 6th in the Friends of the Meadow Cup 1.45m division.
