Stats: age 26, Chatsworth, Ga.

Jos Aladar: b. g., 16.3 hands, 12 years, Argentine-bred Thoroughbred, owned by rider.

This pair finished 26th at Rolex Kentucky last year after completing The Fork CIC*** (N.C.), placing fifth at advanced at Pine Top (Ga.) and ninth at advanced at Southern Pines (N.C.). This spring, they ran 13th at the Red Hills CIC* (Fla.).

Jimmy’s Prediction: This combination has continued to improve each time I’ve seen them compete. However, Jose has yet to take the step from “the rest” to “the best.” He knows how to ride, and his horse knows how to jump, however, they need expert coaching from this point on to apply the necessary polish.
