Little was one of seven entries among the 20 starters to qualify for the
jump-off round by riding penalty-free over the 14-jump first-round course at

last entry, U.S. Equestrian Team veteran Mark Leone of Franklin Lakes, NJ,
also finished fault-free, but while his time of 39.661 seconds on Pinkata De
Longpre moved him ahead of Tribble, it left him seven tenths of a second
