Centurion B: Grand Prix Winner And Parade Horse

When the Chronicle posted a photo of Lisa Goldman and Centurion B winning the $25,000 SmartPak Grand Prix on its Facebook page, the comments about the chestnut’s clip job almost outnumbered the congratulations.

La Bonita Impresses At $500,000 Diamond Mills Hunter Prix

Saugerties, N.Y.- Sept. 8   

Riders and spectators could be forgiven for stopping and staring as Jimmy Torano cantered Kathryn Haefner’s La Bonita around the grand prix ring in the final round of the $500,000 Diamond Mills Hunter Prix.

With her knees to her eyeballs and a soft, quiet step, the warmblood mare by Lupicor earned top scores in the third round and a trip to the final four where she picked up the top check.

Nassar Nabs The Win At The Zoetis $1 Million

Saugerties, N.Y.- Sept. 8   

When the time came to pick a horse for the Zoetis $1 Million Grand Prix at HITS-On-The-Hudson, Egyptian rider Nayel Nassar only had one choice.

His other mount, the stallion Raging Bull Vangelis S was still in quarantine after competing in Europe over the summer, so it was up to the young Lordan to step up to the plate. While only 9, the Hanoverian gelding (Lordanos—Lamona, Landor) had jumped around enough grand prix tracks that Nassar knew he’d be up for the challenge.

Saugerties, N.Y.—Sept. 7

The third time is hopefully the charm for California-based Hope Glynn. She made the long trek to HITS-On-The-Hudson hoping to better her past placings in the $500,000 Diamond Mills Hunter Prix, and after Round 2, she’s well on her way.

Contanga 3 Is The Clear Winner In Ocala

Ocala, Fla.—March 17

When Andre Thieme pulled up Contanga 3 after galloping around the jump-off for the $100,000 Sullivan GMC Truck Grand Prix, he didn’t think he’d just laid down the winning round. That mare was relatively inexperienced, and the slowest of his three mounts qualified for the short course. He assumed that one of the others would outrun her.

The rest of the field hoped the same, but they simply couldn’t beat him.
