Stats: age 27, Richmond, Va.
Anthony Patch: b. g., 16 hands, 12 years, U.S.-bred Thoroughbred (Castle Guard—Aimee Alexis), owned by rider.
In 2009, they were ninth at the Jersey Fresh CCI*** (N.J.) and 14th at the Fair Hill CCI*** (Md.). Last year, they were 14th at the Rolex Kentucky CCI****. This spring, they won a division of advanced at the Southern Pines Horse Trials (N.C.).
Jimmy's Prediction: Lainey and Anthony Patch have had an episodic preparation this spring. Lainey has yet to find the proper balance between her natural aggressive impulses and the cool precision needed for four-star success.
