HITS Saugerties: Tracy Fenney aus Texas holt sich auf Timon

auch den letzten HITS Grand Prix vor dem Mega - Finale

Saugerties/NY (jph) Siehat es schon wieder getan: Tracy Fenney holte sich am letzten Sonntag den mit US$ 50.000 dotierten HITS Grand Prix in Saugerties am Hudson-River. Auf MTM Timon war sie siegreich in einem Feld mit insgesamt 37 Starterpaaren.

 

Der deutsche Parcourschef Olaf Petersen legte diesmal die Messlatte etwas höher als drei Tage zuvor: Ins Stechen schafften es nur sechs Paare. Zweite wurde Karen Polle auf What Ever und Dritte Kristen VanderVeen auf La Bamba.

La Bamba has been jumping so well lately, I’m really happy with how it went today,” said VanderVeen. “We won a big Grand Prix together a few weeks ago so I was excited to bring her here to Saugerties where the competition is really good.”

VanderVeen and
Bull Run’s La Bamba would ultimately finish third in the ribbons.

Second to show was Marie Hecart of Wellington, Florida aboard
Myself De Breve , owned by Haras De La Roque. The team accumulated numerous ribbons so far this year during the HITS-on-the-Hudson summer series and looked to add another one to their collection. Hecart also produced a clear round in 42.738 seconds to sit behind VanderVeen .

Sunday’s class was host to many West Coast competitors who have their sights set on the
Pfizer Million . Karen Cudmore of Omaha, Nebraska, a regular competitor at the HITS Desert Circuit in Thermal, California, returned to HITS-on-the-Hudson and found herself in Sunday’s jump-off. Cudmore, aboard Blair Cudmore’s Ceonto , posted a time of 42.297 seconds, however, a rail down at the in-and-out combination would put the team in sixth place.

Another HITS Thermal competitor, Duncan McFarlane of San Ramon, California posted a clear round in the jump-off with a time of 43.205 seconds aboard
Mr. Whoopy , owned by Simone Coxe. The duo finished in fifth place.

Second to last in the jump-off was Karen Polle of New York, New York aboard her own
What Ever . Polle took over the lead after posting an impressive time of 39.829 seconds.

Fenney, a HITS Ocala regular was the final trip of the day in the
Strongid® C 2X Stadium.

“After we watched Karen [Polle] go we said, well, I guess we can all go home now,” said Fenney’s husband and Grand Prix veteran Mike McCormick. “Tracy said she was too tired to go that fast.”


Fenney and
MTM Timon proved him wrong, finishing the jump-off in 39.816 seconds, a shade faster than Polle for an exciting and triumphant victory.

“It was really muggy today and, I admit, I think we over warmed up in the schooling ring, so we were both pretty tired,” said Fenney. “I was a little worried that we weren’t going to have the speed to win today. We watched Karen go in the nine stride and we just cut it a little wider because
Timon has such a big step. I did a neat, thrifty turn with him and didn’t waste any space at the in-and-out. We were belly down in the last three but Timon always pumps – I’m really happy with how we did today.”

High-Performance riders will have one final opportunity this week to qualify for the
Pfizer Million when the $30,000 Pfizer Million Wild Card Qualifier, presented by Pfizer Animal Health will take place on Friday. Then, superstars from around the world collide on Sunday when the Pfizer $1 Million Grand Prix and Diamond Mills $500,000 Hunter Prix Final will make history as the richest day in show jumping. To cap the day, Motown legends The Temptations will be live in a finale concert.
