Addison Phillips and Trezebees are Two for Two Winning the $10,000 Welcome Prix at Horse Shows by the Bay II

Traverse City, MI - July 25, 2008 - The wind was blowing strong today during the second week of Horse Shows by the Bay at the Flintfields Horse Park in Traverse City, MI. People were holding onto their things tightly as they watched riders compete ring-side. However, the wind did not affect the riders at Horse Shows by the Bay, which runs for this week through Sunday, July 27, and the third week runs through Sunday, August 3.

Down at Team Elmer's Grand Prix ring, the second $10,000 Welcome Prix was held today in front of a large crowd. The course, designed by Canadian Michel Vaillancourt, kept everyone on the edge of their seats. Over twenty riders attempted to make it around, but only seven managed to make it to the jump-off. The class was run according to Table II 2a.

The sponsor for today's $10,000 Welcome Prix was Beth Bakotic of AmberWay Equine Solutions out of Ortonville, MI. Being a Michigan-based company was only one of the reasons they so generously sponsored the class.

"This is our first time sponsoring a class at a horse show, and we are thrilled to start with a show such as the one in Traverse City. We were here last year and just loved it," said Bakotic. "Being from Michigan ourselves, we are honored to be affiliated with Horse Shows by the Bay. We wanted to do our part for Michigan and the equine community to help offer a show of this caliber to Michigan."

Winners of today's Welcome Prix were Addison Phillips and her chestnut mare Trezebees. They won the class last week as well, making it two in a row for the pair. She was all smiles when she rode into the ring to accept her ribbon. The course was very different from last week and required a specific type of ride in order to go clear.

"Winning two weeks in a row feels great. I have had this horse for four years now, so it is nice to win on such a great horse; she makes riding so much fun," said Phillips. "This week the course was very technical. I wouldn't say necessarily the jumps were very big, but the course was very hard to ride so I think it separated the class."

Tomorrow at Horse Shows by the Bay Series II, the class to watch is the always-exciting $10,000 ASG/USHJA High Performance International Hunter Derby, which will run at 6 p.m., as well as the $10,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic at 2 p.m. For more information and full results, please visit http://www.horseshowsbythebay.com
