Stats: age 45, Winter Park, Fla.

Extravagance: ch. g., 17 hands, 14 years, Australian-bred Thoroughbred (Waajib—Nargan), owned by rider and Andre Merlet, Ireland.

In 2009, they were 14th in the Jersey Fresh CCI*** (N.J.), sixth at the Poplar Place Farm CIC*** (Ga.) and fourth in the Florida CCI**. This spring, they placed fifth at intermediate at Poplar Place Farm.

Jimmy’s Prediction: Hilda is experienced at this level. Extravagance is an extravagant size for a diminutive rider. Hilda hasn’t quite found the key to this horse yet, and she will be aiming more for an educational rather than a competitive round.
