Scott Stewart Captures Three Tricolors in Hunters at Winter Equestrian Festival

Wellington, FL – March 2, 2006 – The sixth week of the Winter Equestrian Festival, the CN Worldwide Wellington Open, presented by Cosequin, welcomed winners into the ring to collect the first hunter championships today. In four divisions of professional hunter competition, Scott Stewart of Flemington, NJ, collected three championships and one reserve champion to be the most decorated rider of the day.

Stewart began his streak in the Regular Working Hunter division on his own horse, Beyond. The handsome dark bay gelding was first and third over fences on Wednesday. He returned today for another first and third over fences and the win under saddle. “He felt great in the under saddle,” Stewart recalled. “He was so light and moved wonderfully.” Reserve champion in the division was Wolfgang, ridden by Holly Orlando for Scott Hakim.

Stewart moved on to the Second Year Green division next and rode Alexa and Krista Weisman’s Music Street. The adorable bay gelding scored a fantastic 94 on his way to the win in all three classes on Wednesday. In both of today’s over fences classes, he finished in second place. Reserve champion again went to Holly Orlando, who rode Rio Renoir for owner Brad Wolf.

“Yesterday’s class was one of the best rounds that Music Street has had,” Stewart commented. “Everything came up well and he really pulled it all together.”

In his last division of the day, Stewart made the most of it. He and Molly Ohrstrom’s Compliment grabbed blue ribbons in five of six classes in the division and gained a second place in the under saddle class. Stewart said, “Compliment is amazing every week. He’s a phenomenal jumper, a beautiful mover, and has great conformation. He really is the perfect package for a hunter.” Reserve champions in the division were Ashton and Stewart, who rode for Karen Long Dwight.

The Regular Conformation Hunters saw a very familiar face in the winner’s circle once again this week. Elizabeth Spencer’s Popeye K and Tommy Serio picked up yet another championship, while Moonshine, ridden by David Boley and owned by Cara Walinsky, was reserve champion.

Hunter competition continues tomorrow with championships in the First Year Green Working Hunters. Amateur-Owner and Junior Hunters begin their classes tomorrow as well.
