    Default Flexible does it again!!

    Won the $100k GP of Del Mar tonight in a jump off against Lauren Hough. Once again, the superstar little stallion jumped his HEART out. He's now won every class he's been in since the trials!!

    Could someone please give him a bye at this point? Let him rest up for the real deal!
    Where can I find results for the entire class?

    They will probably have it up on USEF Network soon. They should have the class up on demand probably tomorrow too.

    It does seem that a 16 year old horse... who is CLEARLY on top of his game... should be able to take some down time to prep for London. I hope he gets special consideration for his outstanding performances at the World Cup and Del Mar.

    What an incredible horse!

    It was pretty amazing - he just walked in there and did it. Only two clear in a class of 20+ - lots of rails, and one involuntary dismount.

    I was thinking the same thing! He needs to save some winning rounds for the olympics!!

    Kudos to Fellers and Flex! Wonder if we'll hear anything about them getting a bye...

    I was in one of the boxes on the West side, near the bar. Had a great view of the out of the one-stride, the flag wall (which was really amazing) and Friday night's water jump.

    That flag jump was amazing!!! I really missed the lego jump from last year, though... that was cool.

    I wonder how long it took the jump crew to put up the flag jump?

    If this horse is sound and doesn't make it to the Olympics, there is something rather wrong in this world... just fabulous.

    What an amazing horse. I hope he gets a break now though, no sense using him up before London.

    I went down to Del Mar with my SO and another couple and it was so amazing watching Rich Fellers and Flexible win on both nights. We got up close and took some amazing photos of them (especially over the water jump the first night). I need to figure out how to upload those to share.

    Lauren Hough had a good couple of rides and we especially loved a little horse named Nemo who couldn't contain his excitement and began every round with a few rolling bucks!

    Afterward we congratulated Hap Hansen (who had a special ceremony for being inducted into the hall of fame - and also a pretty nice ride on Archie Bunker!) and got a great photo with him. Wanted to get a photo with Rich Fellers too but he was off to interviews. I do hope Flexible gets a break before London...we really want to be able to cheer them on. He made everything look amazingly effortless, especially the jump off from the first night where he dominated!
