Wellington, Fla. — Feb. 8, 2017 — Week five kicked off at the 2017 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) with a win for Charlotte Jorst and Kastel's Nintendo in the FEI Grand Prix CDI 3*.

Clinching a victory today in the FEI Grand Prix CDI 3*, presented by Wellington Equestrian Realty, was Charlotte Jorst and Kastel's Nintendo, a 2003 Dutch Warmblood stallion owned by Kastel Denmark, with a score of 71.300 percent. The pair represented the United States in Sweden at the FEI World Cup Games last year. 

"Nintendo just felt so good today,” Jorst explained. “Even in the warm-up he felt so together, and so ready to go. I think that having had a little bit of a break last weekend was really nice for him. He was just ready, and I thought we had a really nice test."

"I don't actually know what I'm going to do yet," Jorst continued about her freestyle test that she and Kastel's Nintendo will perform on Friday. "I have new music that I was going to ride through, but I just got it this morning. I'm torn as to whether or not I should do that. It has a little bit of a higher degree of difficulty and a much more fun floor plan for me. I don't know if I will do that, or stick with my old music. It's completely up in the air!"

Placing second was Great Britain’s Susan Pape and Harmony's Don Noblesse, a 2007 Hanoverian stallion owned by Harmony Sporthorses, with a 70.880 percent. Third place was awarded to Dawn White-O'Connor, and Legolas 92, a 2002 Westphalian gelding owned by Four Winds Farm, with a score of 70.560 percent.
