Stable Mates Dominate $2,000 Children’s Jumpers at Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic

Hamilton, MA – September 9, 2006 – Show jumping action continued today at the Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic, held on the Coldwell Banker Previews Field at Myopia Hunt Club. The $2,000 Children’s Classic was featured in Grass Arena 2 with entries competing over a course designed by Richard Jeffery of Bournemouth, England.

There were twelve competitors entered in the Level 3, Table II, Sec.2(a) Classic. Out of the starting group, seven went clean and earned a spot in the jump-off. Alexis Stein put in a very fast effort, turning extremely tight on all of the jumps in the shortened course. Her time on Libidou was a quick 28.310, but she just touched the last vertical and received four faults. Brianna Raab followed on Orato and also had heartbreak at the last obstacle, incurring four faults at the black and white final vertical.

Danielle Stacy completed the first clear round in the jump-off in a blazing time of 27.752 seconds on Tiona. Reese Grreen followed with a conservative clean round on Caruso in a time of 32.780.

Teammate Gina Gazzara aboard Bruin was the only competitor to challenge Stacy’s time. The pair sped around in 28.451, one second off the pace, putting them safely in second place.

“Tiona just loves to jump, and that is why we have done so well this summer,” Stacy explained. Coming fresh from a domination of the Vermont Summer Series, Tiona and Stacy were champions of the Children’s Circuit and winners of the NAL Marshall and Sterling Championship in Saratoga. They have qualified for the indoor shows this fall, and Stacy is excited about her first experience at some of the biggest shows, such as Harrisburg and The Washington International Horse Show.

Her tiny Bay Dutch Warmblood is trained by Patty Harnois and Caitlin Venezia from Holly Hill Farms in Marston Mills, MA. The local professionals also coach the second place winner, Bruin. “Tiona is little and quick, and I hope it will work to our advantage indoors,” Stacy smiled.
