From Atop the Spiral Staircase:
$2,500 USHJA National Hunter Derby
Kris Killam and Mr. Big (by Fury De Lusse from Charlotte) were the winners today of the Derby. “Bogey” is owned by Barbara Fishman of Naples FL and put in two very nice rounds as reflected by the scores. “Bogey has always been so relaxed here at Fox Lea. He loves it here. We’re now hoping for this to carry over to derby finals. We head to Kentucky next”.
2nd place awarded to owner & rider Hasbrouck Donovan and her mount Cymplify. Miss Donovan has had a very strong showing in both the hunters and jumpers during our “Camp” series.
The yellow ribbon today goes to Kyle Dewar and Dakota. This pair won the derby last week. Kyle and Flower placed 4th today as well. Chestnut Hill Farm have been regulars in winners circle for the Hunter and Jumpers here during “Camp” 2016.
