From Atop the Spiral Staircase:
Derek Peterson of Archer FL, who owns Diamant’s Legacy, continues the winning spirit here at Fox Lea by winning the Grand Prix!! They also won the Welcome Stakes on Wednesday. Derek and Diamant’s Legacy were the first horse/rider combination in the class. Therefore, they were first to go into the jump off and set a pace that no one could beat.
There was very tough competition here today including Olympian Kirk Webby who came 2nd and Derek’s son Jared was not far behind in 3rd continuing that family feel that seems synonymous with Fox Lea. If not for the 2 rails in the in jump off it would have been a victory for Savannah Unger and Nana Mia. This combination made their Grand Prix debut here during the inaugural Venice Equestrian Tour earlier this year and are certainly a team to watch.
