Grand National Sunday Highlights



The second day of competition at the Grand National and World Championship Morgan Horse Show featured outstanding depth and quality from start to finish. Numbers were so high in fact that there were several split classes including a three-way split to close the night in Show Arena 6 where 45 riders competed for spots in the AMHA Hunt Seat Equitation Gold Medal Finals.

 

The morning session featured a three-peat for Tracemark Tapestry and Andy Marlett as they topped the Western Pleasure Mares for the third year in a row for Kristie Strom. Several stables enjoyed multiple victories on Sunday; including Oklahoma’s Collinwood Training Centre with Futurity’s Flamboyant and Adam Lewis followed two classes later by Cedar Creek Ungaro and Emily Orthwein. The River’s Edge celebrated back-to-back victory passes as MEM No Inhabitions raced to victory followed in the very next class by Plum Haven Minuet and Kristen Wade. Grove Pointe Stables enjoyed a great day in Oklahoma with a quartet of victory passes including back-to-victories for Kourt Jester Morgans with Tim Roesink presenting Sacred Path Indiana Jones and coming right back in the next class to direct Shelley Silber and Outrageous Courageous to a memorable victory pass.

 

It was a great day for international Morgan competitors as well. Great Britain’s Natasha Rodley kicked off a winning day for Arcuri Stables besting a field of 20 with QVM Rocket Man. Kim Germ’s whistle was probably heard all the back home in Austria when Signed Sealed Delivered and Dwayne Knowles delivered a unanimous win. The Sunday evening performance closed out with Arboria Victorious and Lynn Peeples racing to a unanimous victory for the second year in a row in the Roadster To Bike Stallions and Geldings.
