DEL MAR — In their final CDI event before July’s selection trials to this fall’s Alltech/FEI World Equestrian Games, Steffen Peters and Ravel won the Grand Prix Freestyle on May 1 — and thrilled their hometown crowd.

The competition in the Del Mar Arena highlighted the dressage portion of the 65th Annual Del Mar National Horse Show, and it demonstrated Ravel’s preparedness for the big stage ahead in 2010. Peters and Ravel scored 81.300 percent, almost 10 points beyond the field, in what may have been the last of the pair’s performances to “Cold Play.” New choreography is under way, he said.

Fellow San Diego County riders Guenter Seidel (Encinitas) and Elizabeth Ball (Rancho Santa Fe) rounded out the top three, respectively, with Seidel and U scoring 71.850 and Ball riding Orion to a 66.700.

Sunday’s Grand Prix Special went to Susan Blinks of Encinitas riding Robin Hood with a 69.708 mark. Moorpark’s Jan Ebeling and Sandrina were second with 66.083, and adult amateur Alisa Wilson rode Weltclassiker to a 65.583 foro third.
