Stats: age 34, Riegelsville, Pa., and Ocala, Fla.
Titanium: gr. g., 16.2 hands, 9 years, U.S.-bred Thoroughbred (Shuailaan—Lost Silver), owned by rider and Carl Segal, Pottersville, N.J.
Last year, they placed seventh at the Jersey Fresh CCI*** (N.J.) and completed The Fork CIC*** (N.C.). In advanced horse trials, they finished second at Plantation Field (Pa.), fourth at Wits End (Ont.) and sixth at Maui Jim (Ill.). This spring, they placed second in the advanced at The Fork and fifth in the advanced at Poplar Place Farm (Ga.).
Jimmy’s Prediction: Titanium is inexperienced at this level. I’m sure Buck will give him a quiet, educational experience here.
