Peter Breakwell took the No Drama entry Lucas to the win in the $40,000 Menlo Grand Prix, one of only two double-clear rounds over Michael Roy Curtis’ course. The 10-year-old Hessian gelding is only 15.3 hands, and Breakwell had worried that this might be to his detriment in the big classes.
“There was a concern early on that he wouldn’t be able to jump some of the bigger courses,” said Breakwell, a trainer in Portola Valley, Calif. “Since then he’s proved that he can do it.”
Asked about the No Drama ownership name, Breakwell laughed. “That’s just the name of the original syndicate that owned him,” he said. “There actually has been some drama involved since then, but the name is still there.”
