Stats: age 54, Dunham, Quebec.
Kildoran Abbott: b. g., 16.2 hands, 12 years, Irish-bred Irish Sport Horse (Clover Brigade—Gentle Lassie, Leabeg), owned by rider.
This pair was fourth at the Fair Hill CCI*** (Md.) and second in the CIC*** at Jersey Fresh (N.J.) last year. This spring, they were 12th at the CIC*** at Red Hills (Fla.).
Jimmy’s Prediction: Peter is one of the few true amateurs left in our sport. His efforts are not “amateurish” in the pejorative sense, but rather in the sense of doing something for the love of it. He and Kilrodan Abbott continue to improve. I expect a quiet clear round across country from this pair, and the smile on Peter’s face as they gallop across the finish line will be better than any placing.
