Will Simpson’s new ride might take him to Las Vegas.
It was gold versus gold, with a little silver thrown in, in the $50,000 Purina Mills Grand Prix CSI-W on Feb. 7 in Thermal, Calif.
The jump-off featured Olympic gold medal teammates McLain Ward and Will Simpson, with the addition of Canada’s team silver medalist Jill Henselwood.
Ward led the way in the first round and turned in a graceful clear with Phillipa over Bernardo Cabral’s challenging track. It looked for a while like that might be the only clean round of the evening.
