    Default Jimmy Torano: 2 places at once?!

    Jimmy Torano showed in the Grand Prix at both HITS and Vermont today. Does anyone know how he managed that? Ruby slippers? Magic carpet? Teleporter?

    Just kidding, he must have done HITS earlier in the week and Vermont over the weekend. Still impressive though!

    I believe he did the Friday prix at HITS and then went back to Vermont for Sunday.

    The real answer: Since several riders in Vermont were planning to go to HITS for the qualifying GP, Vermont moved their GP to 9 AM. Jimmy was second here on a really cool horse named Winsom. How did HITS go?

    Default Madeline is right

    The VT class went first thing in the morning, HITS at 2 I think. A lot of peeps were going to skip the VT class (HITS is a qualifier for the million) so they moved it so riders could do both.

    IIRC, Margie once did THREE GP in 24 hours. (won two, third in the other).
