After a narrow victory in the marathon, Chester Weber is poised to earn a record setting tenth National Championship. Weber (Ocala, Florida) was first four-in-hand driver on the marathon course with the team of his own and Jane Clark's Boris, Splash, Boy W, and Ultra. To the delight of a flock fans following him from hazard to hazard, he proved to be the day's best. Weber's 98.40 gave him a slight edge over Jimmy Fairclough (Newtown, New Jersey), who finished with a 98.89 behind the team of Charlie Brown, Kavango V. Falkenstein, Valentino, and Zenden.
Thanks to a great score in the dressage on Thursday, Weber carries a significant overall lead into Sunday's final cones phase. His 132.14 score after two phases is more than 16 points ahead of Fairclough's 148.95 total score.
Casey Zubek (Manhattan Illinois) is in third with a 261.80 score.
