Quintana Powers Through For An Upperville Jumper Classic Victory

Upperville, Va.—June 7   

Ramiro Quintana didn't begin the Upperville Colt & Horse Show the way he might have wanted. A fall from a young horse early in the week left him with badly bruised ribs and some serious doubts about his effectiveness in the tack.

But the Argentinean professional was determined to end the show on a high note. And he did just that on Sunday, topping the $100,000 Upperville Jumper Classic aboard Whitney.

Upperville, Va.—June 8

Farmer Bests Her Derby Foes At Upperville

Upperville, Va.—June 7

Throwback Thursday: Rodney Jenkins And San Felipe Were Classic In Every Sense Of The Word

Amigo Stands Out At the Upperville Grand Prix

Upperville, Va.—June 9

When the three 4-faulters returned for the jump-off, it looked like it might be more of the same. Kyle Timm had a rail aboard Wadisson, leaving the crowd wondering if they would see a clear round at all.

But then Angel Karolyi gave the crowd what they'd been waiting for: a clean go aboard Amigo.
