For Immediate Release:  February 21, 2017

Gulfport, Mississippi
Matt Cyphert of North Lake, Texas, arrived at the Gulf Coast Winter Classic Circuit Week II and kicked it off with a trifecta win in Friday’s $8,000 Horseflight Open Welcome and brought home the first, second and third place ribbons!
As the first to turn in double clear rounds on his own Lochinvar, with times of 70.036 seconds and 37.313 seconds, respectively, Cyphert set the new time to beat besting the 47 second round time allowed.
Only two other horse and rider teams advanced to the second round besides Cyphert and included last week’s $25,000 Domino’s Grand Prix winner Lincoln Case’s Canebrake ridden by Whitney Boyce-Petrey of New Orleans, Louisiana and Helen Gilbert’s Al Pacini, ridden by Shannon Hicks of Lake St. Louis, Missouri.
Canebrake and Boyce-Petrey followed Cyphert and Lochinvar with double clear rounds, but their second round time of 44.150 finished them in fourth place overall.
Cyphert followed Boyce-Petrey and Canebrake with Hannah Donald’s Hector with the next set of double clear rounds. Their second round time of 43.054 seconds rewarded them with a third place finish.
Hicks and Al Pacini were the next horse and rider team to turn in a clear first round and although their second round time was the fastest in 35.973 seconds, four jump faults had them finish in fifth place.
Cyphert and Suzanne Suttles’ Better Judgement sat in the last to go position. Going clean in their first round, the pair’s fault free second round time in 39.347 seconds would have them finish in second place overall.

Hicks returned for both sixth and seventh place ribbons in the irons of Helen Gilbert’s Emir D and C’Havinia after turning in four fault first rounds in times of 70.113 seconds and 70.181 seconds, respectively.

Penny Brennan of Buhl, Alabama and her own Sun Tzu earned an eighth place ribbon after turning in a four fault first round in a time of 71.089 seconds.

HOW SWEET IT IS! WHITNEY BOYCE-PETREY PILOTS CANEBRAKE TO FIRST GRAND PRIX WIN IN THE $25,000 DOMINO’S GRAND PRIX

For Immediate Release:  February 13, 2016

Gulfport, Mississippi

Whitney Boyce-Petrey of New Orleans, Louisiana and Lincoln Case’s Canebrake won yesterday’s $25,000 Domino’s Grand Prix under sunny skies at the Gulf Coast Winter Classic.

As their first Grand Prix win, the victory was especially sweet!

Course Designer Nancy Wallis of Lambertville, New Jersey set the first round time allowed at 79 seconds. “I think Nancy did a great job designing all week,” commented Boyce-Petrey. “She built all week and got everyone comfortable. Each class she designed would present us with a new challenge or question on the course leading up to the Grand Prix,” she added.

First to go Shannon Hicks and Helen Gilbert’s C’Havinia turned in a first round effort in a time of 73.434 seconds, but with four jump faults would finish in second place as the fastest four fault round.

Sara Dees of Chatom, Alabama in the irons of her own Clearwater 5, followed in a time of 75.961, but a heartbreak rail at the final fence had them finish in sixth place overall.

Penny Brennan and her own Sun Tzu, the victors in Friday’s $5,000 Horseflight Open Welcome, had a rail at the second fence and their time of 75.067 would find them finishing in fifth place overall.

Boyce-Petrey had her first ride in the grand prix field on WRB Show Stables, LLC’s Mira, but their time of 79.688 seconds with five rails and time faults would find them finishing in eleventh place overall.

Dominique Damico of Berwyn, Pennsylvania and her own Cauoso followed with an eight fault first round in a time of 75.759 seconds, awarding them an eighth place overall.

Evan Coluccio of Middleburg, Virginia and EMC International’s Fluttershy also earned eight jump faults, and their time of 79.993 seconds added one time fault for an overall ninth place finish.

Hicks returned to the field, this time in the irons of Helen Gilbert’s Al Pachini. Four faults in a time of 74.495 seconds earned them a fourth place ribbon.

Brennan and Mister Money, owned by Brennan and Michelle Guardino-Dettelbach, followed in the order, but eight jump faults in a time of 74.762 seconds awarded them a seventh place finish.

Boyce-Petrey was up next, this time with Canebrake and the pair turned in the only first round leaving all the rails up. Their time of 79.049 seconds earned them one time fault, but also the win.

“The course walked nice and didn’t scare you when you walked it,” said Boyce-Petrey, “but it rode a little different,” she said. “It was fun and rode well, but it was a bit tougher,” she added.  Boyce -Petrey continued, “The Horseflight jump wasn’t near the in gate, but you had to ride toward the gate and then make a 90 degree turn to get to the Horseflight jump. With my first horse I rode, I overrode the one stride and then my horse spooked really hard at the Horseflight jump.  For my second ride, I made sure my horse saw the Horseflight jump,” she said.

Dees returned with her own Rico S for her second ride, but twelve jump faults in a time of 73.089 seconds saw them finish in tenth place overall.

Hicks and Helen Gilbert’s Emir D sat in the enviable last to go position, but four jump faults in a time of 73.862 seconds would see them finish in third place overall.

“We just got him [Canebrake] in the beginning of the fall and this was his first Grand Prix of the season and his first win,” Boyce-Petrey exclaimed. “We got him from a friend of mine in Ohio who got him as a Low Junior Jumper. She did some smaller classes with him and thought he could be something special and that’s when we bought him,” she said.

Boyce-Petrey continued, “We started working for the Case family about a year ago and they are just the loveliest and most supportive people. Since then, our business has grown tremendously. And, we have a great staff! Heather Hays, Andrew Michael and Cullen Latimer are just amazing,” she added.
“We really like showing in Gulfport every year,” said Boyce-Petrey. “We brought nineteen horses with us and we’ll be here next week too. It’s a great show, we live in New Orleans so it’s an easy hour drive from home so we can run back and forth when we need to and the people here are so nice!”

Saturday night welcomed Shannon Hicks of Lake St. Louis, Missouri, riding Helen Gilbert’s C’Havinia to the winner’s circle after their double clear rounds in the Grand Prix finale that saw eleven horse and rider teams go for the blue.

Hicks and C’Havinia were the first to turn in a clear first round effort in a time of 76.965 seconds, well within the time allowed of 85 seconds. It looked as if there would be no jump off round until Christian Rogge of Spring, Texas and GK Performance Horses’ Kahlua turned in a clear first round effort in a time of 79.913 seconds.

The jump off round was set with a time allowed of 42 seconds and Hicks and C’Havinia were first up. As first to go, they had four faults with a time of 29.955 seconds, leaving the win open for Rogge and Kahlua. However, as last to go, they too had four jump faults and with their time of 39.051 seconds, would finish in second place, leaving Hicks and C’Havinia the winners!

Hicks returned for third place with the fastest four fault first round in the irons of Helen Gilbert’s Al Pachini. They posted a first round time of 75.194 seconds.

Fourth place went to last week’s Sidelines‘ Grand Prix winner, Mary Lisa Leffler of Brookeville, Maryland and Rolling Acres’ Bling Bling for their four fault first round in a time of 75.906 seconds.

Juan Lavieri and his own Don Pedro placed fifth with their four fault first round in a time of 72.629 seconds. Rogge returned for a sixth place ribbon in the irons of his own Mojo TSP after posting a four fault first round in a time of 79.577 seconds. Hicks picked up a seventh with Helen Gilbert’s Emir for their four fault first round in a time of 79.583 seconds and Sarah Dees of Chatom, Alabama placed eighth place with her own Rico S.

if was tight and you really had to line it up to the oxer in order to
make it work,” he added.  “I think that was the
biggest question in the Handy round,” he added.  “I
took the low options with all three of my rides in the Handy round so
I could make the tighter inside turn with them,” he said.
Colucio and Rocking the Boat pulled themselves up from their Classic round
fifth place position to finish in second overall after earning a
Handy score of 190 for a combined 348.

Maddrix and Special’s second round score of 184 and combined 348 secured the third place ribbon and Milliren and Valentine moved up to finish in fourth place after earning a Handy round score of 178 for a total combined score of 336.

Maddrix and Quarterback Z moved up from their first round eighth place standing to finish in fifth with a Handy score of 175 for an overall score of
325.  “That was Quarterback Z’s second Handy round ever and he was really great. We were all really happy with how he went,” he said.

White Lightning and Julie Curtain moved from their initial second place standing after the Classic round to finish insixth place after earning a Handy score of 155 for an overall scoreof 323.

Fabrege, owned by Sara Stephens and ridden by Anna Marie
Mayes of Memphis, Tennessee held their seventh place position after
the Handy round earning a combined score of 316.5.

Colucio and Burlesque moved up from their initial eleventh place standing after the Classic Round to finish in eighth place after posting a second round score of 174 for a combined 316. His other mount, El Tindo, finished in ninth place after earning a second round score of 156 for a combined 316. Mary Lisa Leffler of Brookeville, Maryland in the irons of Cynthia Hallman’s Fig Street’s Duchess finished in tenth place with an overall score of 150. Eleventh place was awarded to Cachas Fumar, owned by Rachel Eubanks and ridden by Ashley Hotz of Eads, Tennessee for their overall score of 359.5 and Coluccio finished the class in  twelfth place with Love Game after earning a combined score of 292.

“I had a great day and I really want to thank Alina [Dumitrescu], Missy [Nolen] and Sarah [Digiorgio] for the opportunity to ride such great horses,” Maddrix said. “And, I think Allen [Rheinheimer] deserves a big thank you too.  I saw him out there on Monday and he and his team were working the hunter rings and redid the footing.  It made a huge difference and we are all really pleased with the improvements,” he added.

No day off for Allen
Rheinheimer and his team. Monday he and his team redid the footing
for the hunter arena.

“The people here cannot believe what a difference there is in the footing.  The show would have been cancelled today if the ring had not been re-crowned.  The footing was amazing today for all the rain we had,” commented Office Manager Jonathan Rabon.
