Four Decades - Thousands of Competitions
Millions of Fans - Countless Memories
But only a precious few are truly Spruce Meadows Classics
Leslie Howard was the two-time defending champion of this event but was coming into the 2001 'North American' tournament with a serious knee injury. At the start of the week it looked like she wouldn't even be able to compete, but when the Queen Elizabeth II Cup began, she gutted out a performance worthy of a champion.
Taking part in one of the most thrilling jump-offs in Spruce Meadows' history, would she make it three wins in a row?
Relive the event as it was seen in 2001 and see the amazing story unfold.
