Legacy Cup Week One in a Nutshell

3’6” PRO & RESTRICTED PRO GO ROUND, FINALS & CHAMPIONSHIP

While the American Hunter-Jumper Foundation is the creator of the Legacy Cup it is because of all the support from the sponsors that they are able to “put the show back in the horse show.” So a special thank you goes to Bryan Baldwin’s Meralex Farm as the sponsor of the 3’6” Pro Finals won by Just Jack ridden by Jennifer Alfano for owner Caroline Moran (Score 268, earnings $3,187). All Season Farm was the sponsor of the 3’6” Pro Go Round which was won by Louise Serio on Rio Renoir for owner Brad Wolf (190/$450). Mr. & Mrs. Rush Weeden sponsored the 3’6” Restricted Pro Finals, won by Luminaire, ridden by Megan Udelson for Betty Weibel (246/$150) and for their 8th place finish in the Finals they earned $248. They also won Championship honors sponsored by John & Stephanie Ingram for the 3’ Pro Finals and an additional $1,250. Joe Darby sponsored the Restricted Championship for 3’6” Trophy. McQuay Stables was the sponsor of the 3’6” Restricted Pro Go Round which was won by Maria Dritsas aboard Passport for owner Casey Scudder (156/$150). They were 16th in the Go Round. (A Restricted Pro rider is a new professional or one who hasn’t shown or won at the upper levels of show hunter competition.) A number of other companies and individuals also supported the 3’6” Pro division, including Essex Classics and Malvern Saddlery.

The 3’6” Pro division started with 31 horses entered in the first round which was narrowed down to 29 horses that competed in the Finals. A total of $10,200 was given out in the division, which consisted of two classes—a Go Round and the Finals.

3’ PRO & RESTRICTED PRO GO ROUND, FINALS & CHAMPIONSHIP

The 3’ Pro Finals was sponsored by Montoga/Geoff Teall and the winner Tucker (262/$4,356), ridden by Chris Payne, Cincinnati, OH, was presented with the China Blue Trophy, presented each year by China Blue Farm. Jennifer Papiernik (173.5/$450) rode Montrachet, owned by Lauren Butwid, to win the Pro & Restricted Pro 3’ Go Round. The 3’ Restricted Pro Finals was sponsored by Ashland Farms and Say the Word (250/$150) with Kristi Cardalico, Lake Worth, FL, aboard was given the Ashland Stables Perpetual Trophy. They were 5th (170/$90) in the 3’ Go Round. They were also the 3’ Pro Restricted Champion (420/$1,250) sponsored by John and Stephanie Ingram. Janet Read sponsored the Pre Green Incentive and the winner Purple Label, ridden by Rob Bielefeld, Wellington, FL, was honored with the Wedgewood Trophy (412/$3,000).

The 3’ Pro division started with a field of 62 horses entered in the first round which was narrowed down to the top 25 horses that competed in the Finals. A total of $16,400 was given out in the division, which consisted of two classes—a Go Round and the Finals. The Finals determined the abovementioned four winners based on their level of experience. In both the 3’6” and 3’ Restricted Pro Divisions a total of $3,500 was given out.
