Fox Lea Farm 25,000 Grand Prix
What a great night at Fox Lea Farm! After a very busy show day, the door money and monies raised by the silent auction and 50/50 raffle sales were donated to All Faiths Food Bank.
There was a fantastic turnout by both the public and the riders, and with an almost ‘at capacity’ crowd around the ring they were in for quite a show. We had 27 horse/rider combinations in the first and 8 to return to the jump off. The riders themselves were quite a varied mix of wife and husband (Dewar Family), a father and son (Peterson family), a junior (Cooper Dean) and 6 different countries represented by the riders. We had locally known riders, nationally known riders and several were first time appearances by new faces. This was a great way to start the chase for the Grand Prix rider incentive of the golf cart and the CWD saddle to be presented later in the year.
Winning the class was Acolina R (Sarah Turner – Charlottesville, VA) ridden by Aaron Vale. Aaron had 3 in the Prix with 2 making the top 12 and Jordan Coyne also had both of her rides in the top 12 coming in 2nd & 11th.

1st 397 Acolina R/Aaron Vale
