Tuesday Matinee High Points



            Classes were extremely well filled on Tuesday morning with several being split. It also turned out to be a record-breaking morning of dual wins for several exhibitors and one horse.

            Nissa Sultan started out her morning winning section one of the Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited 13 & Under class aboard King’s Carma. She returned a few classes later to take section one of the Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited 13 & Under class with Off The Record.

            Ryan Visser continued her great week with a victory pass in section two of the Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited 13 & Under competition and then made a quick change to pilot Lady Mandolin down victory lane in section two of the Junior Three-Gaited class. This gave an unheard of two riders both sections of the 13 & under five-gaited and three-gaited classes.

            Also a star among the junior exhibitor riders, Ava Stachowski took her Callaway’s Nachelle to the top of section two of the 14-17 Country Pleasure class, only to return later in the program to win section two of the Junior Park Pleasure class, riding Elegant In Blue against the professionals.

            Riding Jett Rink to a world’s title in section one of the 14-17 show pleasure division, it was Victoria Walz’s second victory pass of the week as she won the Saddle Seat Equitation 17-Year-Old World’s Championship the morning before.

            We also had horses winning their second world’s titles in as many days as Iamnotacow followed up his Monday night Amateur Roadster To Bike blue with Martin Schaffel by winning a Youth Roadster To Bike World’s Championship with Zoe Schaffel for the second consecutive year.

            Keeping the Majestic Oaks momentum going, Maureen Campbell won the Three-Year-Old Hackney Pony class with Heartland Gun Show and the Three-Year-Old Road Pony title with Heartland Magic Moment. Proud breeder Darrel Kolkman rounded out the three-year-old pony division with a victory pass with long-tail winner Heartland Rain Dreamer. And adding to the Heartland breeding dominance this morning, Helen Rich presented Heartland Jamin as the Four-Year-Old Hackney Pony World’s Champion for Majestic Oaks.

            Speaking of winning breeders, Darrell Case presented the third Willowbank world’s champion of the week in Weanling Breeders Stake winner Odd Or Even. Blythewood Farm picked up the Yearling Breeders Stake World’s Championship with Citation.

            Other action for speedsters saw Debra Clark and Power Stroke take the Ladies Roadster To Bike title and Jamie Bo Lucas win section two of the youth bike class with Carl Julian.

            CH Graceful Surprise (with Chloe Hauville) and CH Anderson Cooper (with Faith Robbins) were outstanding in their respective section two and three wins of the 14-17 show pleasure division.

            As it has been, the Amateur Park division was deep in talent. Alexis Braswell and CH HS Dignitary came away with the section one title, while Skylar Rueff and her beloved CH It’s Aerosmith topped an extremely deep section two.

            Adult Country Pleasure world’s titles were awarded to Juicy Fruit and Karen Thompson as well as Paula Percoco with Miss Can’t Be Wrong, with both of them turning back challenges from veteran teams.

            Rounding out the Tuesday matinee competition, Matt Shiflet was doubly proud of his victory pass in section one of the Junior Park Pleasure class as Sharon Anderson’s winning entry he rode was also sired by his stallion, Let’s Go Tango.
