Tampa, FL – March 28 – Four horses made it to the jump off in the $20,000 1.50 m Classic at the Tournament of Champions. There were 29 horses to start the class with a course designed by Mehves Trak of Turkey. This course was quite big and faults were scattered about the course. First back in the jump off was McLain Ward of Brewster, New York riding Galant. They were very fast with an inside turn to the in-and-out and finished with 4 faults in 29.946 seconds. Next was Jeffery Welles riding Equinox, a Dutch Warmblood gelding. The pair was fast and clean but he did lose a little momentum on the tight inside turn but finished in 31.432 seconds. Arriscraft Rocca and Keean White from Canada were next in the jump off and beat Jeffery’s time but had 4 faults. Last to go in the jump off was Rich Fellers from California, he and McGuinness completed the course with 4 faults. Jeffery and Equinox were the only double clean in the class and the winner.
