Jonathan McCrea Wins $10,000 Wellington Golf Car Welcome Stake Ken Berkley Drives Home with Golf Car

WELLINGTON, Fla., April 25--Jonathan McCrea's first time riding Triomphe de Muze was only 24 hours before winning the $10,000 Wellington Golf Cars Welcome Stake at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center Friday.

McCrea got the ride when his wife, Christine, took the reins of another of the horses owned by Candy Tribble and Windsor Show Stables a week earlier that Jonathan had been competing.

"It's turned out great," said McCrea of Suffield, Conn. after going double clear on the 11-year-old Belgian Warmblood as the lat of the 25 combinations that started the final in the series at the Spring 6 show. Twelve advanced to the jumpoff.

McCrea and Triomphe de Muze, who was bought in Europe about nine months ago, posted a time of 37.841 secs., with Ramiro Quintano and Sydney second in 39.336 and Pablo Gamboa and Ultimo third in a time of 40.083 secs.

Ken Berkley of Flemington, N.J. and Carlotta finished fourth, but the $1,000 in prize money they won was enough to take home the golf cart presented by Wellington Golf Cars for the combination winning the most money in the Welcome Stake series.

Laura Kraut of Wellington and Le Prestige St. Lois led the standings up to the last event, but she was in Europe and did not contest the final two classes.
