Lexington, Ky.—Aug. 10
If it were possible to have a perfect start to the U.S. Pony Finals Mimi Gochman came close. Her week started with a win in the large pony model yesterday and a third in the under saddle. She followed it up with a win over fences to take home the championship with Storyteller. Gochman scored a 259.5 over fences, which tied Gabrielle Roderick on Hidden Springs Woodstar, but a higher score from the judging panel three gave her the blue.
