Lisa Wilcox and Galant went two for two on the second day of competition at the 2017 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) in Wellington, FL.

The winning combination topped the leaderboard with their Justin Timberlake and “Trolls” movie soundtrack-themed freestyle in the “Friday Night Stars” FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDI-W.

“I knew that he (Galant) liked it, so I was hoping that that would show up in the arena tonight. It brought a bit of confidence because he recognized the music, he was having fun, and he totally focused on me and what we were doing,” said Wilcox.

It’s their second victory in as many days. Wilcox and the 2006 Belgian Warmblood gelding also won Thursday’s FEI Grand Prix.

The Florida-based rider took last summer off from competition with to focus on preparing for the 2017 season. Her goal is to compete at the World Cup Final in Omaha this summer.

“I’m so proud of him. I’m just so proud of where we have come from last year to this year,” said Wilcox.

Team Canada rounded out the top three with Megan Lane (CAN) and Caravella scoring 75.967% to take second place and Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu (CAN) and All In claiming third with a score of 72.608%.
