Stats: age 24, Walnut Creek, Calif.

Fric Frac Berence: b. g., 17.1 hands, 18 years, French-bred Selle Français (Laeken—Tyrannie II, L’Ensorceleur), owned by rider.

This pair finished 2008 with a fourth place in the CCI** at The Event At Rebecca Farm (Mont.). In 2009, they were ninth in the CIC***s at The Event At Rebecca Farm and Twin Rivers (Calif.). Last year, they were eighth at the Galway Downs CCI*** (Calif.) and 16th at the Bromont CCI*** (Que.). This spring, they placed sixth in an advanced division at Twin Rivers Winter.

Jimmy’s Prediction: This combination are experienced campaigners. Frankie and “Fric” have been going well over the past couple of years, and they are ready for a four-star challenge. Riders making the trek to Rolex from the West Coast are usually somewhat startled by the intensity and quality of the competition here. This pair should go well here, but they will finish behind more experienced performers.
