If you told Maggie Jayne yesterday that Francesca would claim the regular conformation title at the Pennsylvania National in Harrisburg, Pa., she never would have believed you. The lovely mare won the model, but over fences they were having trouble getting in sync.
“Usually I do her first, then Madeline [Thatcher] does her in the juniors after me,” said Jayne. “She was so quiet in the first class I had a huge chip. Then in the next class I overdid it and almost did five strides in a six.”
