    Default Gold Cup vs Devon Fall Classic

    Any thoughts on these two shows running the same week?

    The Gold Cup will get the big players. Devon will get the people who want to show at Devon and maybe give their up and coming horses a chance to go under the lights (like me! except I'm in MN right now..)

    I was dying to do the fall show at Devon to get some experience under the lights, especially since the GP is only 1.45m instead of national standard. I'd be willing to bet that there will be a fair amount of people who go for that reason.

    I remember the Gold Gup 1978 at the Stadium in Philly and met Mr. & Mrs. Dixon owners of Jet Run and she absolutley didn't want her picture taken at all...

    True.
    But because Devon is also the Zone II Jumper Finals you'll get exhibitors who are interested in that competition. so pehaps a different group of exhibitors at each show but both shows should be well attended.
