Mark Jungherr and Enterprise Capture $25,000 HITS Ocala Grand Prix

OCALA, FL (February 2, 2004)—Mark Jungherr of Amesbury, Massachusetts, rode Enterprise owned by R A Francoeur to victory in Sunday's $25,000 HITS Ocala Grand Prix. Patty Stovel of Manakin-Sabot, Virginia, took second place aboard Interpol owned by Karen Murphy. Third place went to Harold Chopping of Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, on Rabaila owned by Silver Oak Stables.

Grand Prix course designer, Timmy Hott of Bokeelia, Florida, set a challenging 12-obstacle first round course that included one double combination - fence No. 8, and one triple combination - fence No. 11. The time allowed was set at 96 seconds. The triple cost a number of riders their clear round and served to narrow the field to only three horses.

The three horses advanced to a shortened seven-fence jump-off course. Mark Jungherr was first in the order on Enterprise. The pair delivered a faultless performance in a careful time of 54.33 seconds. Harold Chopping and Rabaila were next to attempt the course. Chopping was the winner of Friday's Mini-Prix with Rabaila, and the mare had proven that she could deliver the speed when asked. Their time was fast, 48.36 seconds, but an unlucky rail at the second to last fence left them in third place. Patty Stovel and Interpol finished out the field with a clear round in a time of 56.64 seconds, securing second place in the competition.

Other major award winners at HITS Ocala January 2 included:
Charles Owen Children's Medal Winner - Sara Green, Sherborn, MA
Charles Owen Adult Medal Winner - Kimberly Jungherr, Amesbury, MA

The next Grand Prix event of the circuit will take place on Thursday, February 12th at 1pm. Spectators will enjoy world-class show jumping competition as riders compete for top honors in the $25,000 HITS Grand Prix. Grand Prix riders will take to the field again that same week on Sunday, February 15th for the $50,000 EMO Grand Prix.
