Tommy Serio & Simply Elegant Win in First Year Green Hunters at WEF

WELLINGTON, Fla., Feb. 27--A cold and windy start to the CN Winter Equestrian Festival presented by Zimmerman Advertising Week 7 had no effect on Tommy Serio and Simply Elegant in the First Year Green Hunters at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center Wednesday.

Serio, of Keswick, Va. and the eight-year-old bay mare owned by Lara Vaughan of Baltimore took the blue ribbon in the first trip over fences, placed third in the second trip and fourth in the under saddle.

Serio rode Simply Elegant a few years ago in the Pre Green Hunters and she came back to his barn just weeks before WEF.

"She went today like she always does," Serio said, "very direct and easy. If I had a dozen like her my life would be easier."

First place in the second trip over fences and the second place under saddle was awarded to Peridot and Kara Raposa of Clinton, N.Y. The seven-year-old bay gelding is owned by Steve Martines of Elburn, Ill. and trained by Lynn Jayne of Elgin. Jayne bought the horse a year ago as a future older adult amateur mount for Martines.

"He is a very sensible horse with a lot of talent," Lynn said. "He was a little spooky in the first class today, but the second class was very nice."

The Under Saddle class was won by the seven-year-old bay gelding, Sportin' Life, owned and ridden by Scott Stewart of Wellington.

Second place in the first trip over fences went to the seven-year-old black stallion, Be Cool, also ridden by Stewart and owned by Krista and Alexa Weisman of Sherbourne, Mass.

The red ribbon in the second trip over fences was awarded to the seven-year-old bay gelding, Tayfoon, ridden by Jim Toon of South Salem, N.Y. and owned by JT Farm of South Salem.
