Langley’s Brian Morton won for a second straight week at Thunderbird Show Park, taking top spot at a World Cup qualifier event.

Morton, aboard his 17-year-old Selle Francais gelding Spitfire, beat riders from nine other countries at Sunday’s $55,500 Purica Recovery EQ CSI*2-W World Cup Qualifier.

And Egypt’s Nayel Nassar topped the field for Friday night’s $33,000 CSI*2 Maui Jim Grand Prix event, also at Thunderbird Show Park.

Nassar was aboard his 10-year-old Hanoverian gelding Lordan.
