On Sunday, local spectators watched some of the countries best young riders compete against seasoned professionals in the $30,000 Grand Prix of Princeton. The course was a true test of adjustability. 5 out of 28 found their way around without fault.
Schuyler Riley and Carney Hough Manx returned first and put in a clear effort ultimately finishing fourth. Ramiro Quintana and Ollywood Des Horts gave it their all, and had the fastest time, but faulted at the last fence. Megan McDermott and the appropriately named Bull Run’s Becky Blue were last to go. Becky Blue jumped beautifully and galloped to victory edging out Timo and Cody Auer by tenths of a second.
