From Atop the Spiral Staircase:
$25,000 Fox Lea Farm Grand Prix
The Grand Prix today was won by Bowers Cone riding VIP Quality Royale owned by Bowers Cone, LLC. “Roy” is a 14-year old Dutch Warmblood (by Cavalier from Queensway Royal AES). This is the second Grand Prix win for this horse rider combination. “It was a beautiful course and my horse tried really hard for me today. I couldn’t have asked for a better effort from him. Couldn’t have done it without Steve Di Carlo and the whole Benchmark team”.
Derek Peterson was again near the top of the ribbons coming 2nd riding Co Pilot and 6th riding Diamant’s Legacy who has won 2 Grand Prix already during our “Camp” series this year.
Kyle Dewar riding his mount Gomez Van De Withoeve was 3rd and Kyle was also 12th riding his other mount Russell in the Grand Prix. Kathy Dewar had an unfortunate rail and placed 8th riding Eliza.
