Beezie Madden and Danny Boy Win The Sanctuary Peak Performance Award

Wellington, FL (March 30, 2011) – Olympic Gold Medalist Beezie Madden and Danny Boy, owned by Abigail Wexner, won the final round of the $31,000 WEF Challenge Cup Series during week 11 of the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival, and the successful duo also rode away with The Sanctuary Peak Performance Award. Sponsored by The Sanctuary at PBIEC, the award is presented to a horse with a successful performance due to their conditioning and fitness level.

Danny Boy, an 11-year-old Belgian Warmblood, was out of competition during 2010 and Madden said she is pleased that he is back and in winning form. Danny Boy and Madden went last in the Challenge Cup Series jump-off, chasing Nick Skelton and Big Star. Danny Boy jumped fast and clean with a winning time of 39.41 seconds and Madden said she felt lucky to go last and “practice” going fast with Danny Boy.

“The Sanctuary is honored to award Beezie and Danny Boy with the Peak Performance Award. Danny Boy spent last year out of commission and the fact that Beezie has been able to bring him back and right to the top speaks volumes about what a remarkable horsewoman she is. You can see that Danny Boy is fit and well conditioned and that the autoimmune problem he was dealing with last year is no longer affecting him. We look forward to having Beezie bring Danny Boy to The Sanctuary at PBIEC, on the WEF show grounds, and I am confident we can help her continue with Danny Boy’s conditioning regime,” said Brenda McDuffee, General Manager of The Sanctuary Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Center.

The Sanctuary, which has a 30-acre facility in Ocala, now boasts a state-of-the-art facility on the grounds of the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, The Sanctuary at PBIEC. Built in conjunction with the Wellington Equestrian Partners, The Sanctuary at PBIEC is the most advanced facility of its kind in the world and has developed a reputation in which horses experience the benefits of cutting-edge therapies while rehabilitating from injury or conditioning for world-class events.

“The Sanctuary at PBIEC was founded on the principles of trying to help equine athletes reach their peak condition or, if injured, reach complete recovery so they can return to competition as quickly as possible,” McDuffee said. “We are a full horse therapy and conditioning center featuring above ground water treadmills, cold saltwater leg spas treatment, two vibration plates with solarium, laser therapy, electromagnetic pulse therapy and a respiratory machine.”
