- Sunday's $30,000 Grand Prix of Princeton capped off a great week of show jumping at Hunter Farms North. Seven clear rounds were produced from eighteen starters. The course was designed by Canadian, Chris Brandt. The faults cam primarily from a challenging triple combination and a big tri0ple bar going away from the in gate to an airy narrow vertical. Adjustability was put to the test throughout the course.
The exciting jump off came down to Linda Sheridan and Sarah Segal. Both riders are great competitiors who have had recent wins on these horses at Princeton Show Jumping. Linda Sheridan and Vatina HPF took the early lead with an impressive jump off time of 49.917s. Tilghman, ridden by Segal, showed just how fast and athletic he is. Tilghman was ahead by one stride in the first line and did a very tidy turn upon landing to put him two strides ahead to the next fence. Tilghman and Segal would stop the clock at 40.139s to capture the win.
