- On Friday, Joe Lombardo's inviting derby course offered the riders long flowing options in the Classic Round and some tight turns with a challenging trot jump in the Handy Round.  Judged by the honorable Debbie Sands, Betty Oare, Frank Willard and Steve Wall, the high performance hunter class had thirty-eight entries. Top score in the Classic Round went to Blenheim Spring Derby winner Nick Haness on Gelato with a total of 174, followed closely by Hope Glynn on Woodstock at 172 and Glynn again on C.R. Haribo with a 171.  A score of 170 put Come Monday and Christa Endicott in a close fourth position.

Once again the challenges of the Handy Round changed the placings of the top twelve.  The victory gallop went to birthday girl Hope Glynn on C.R. Haribo, while Haness bumped down to ninth with a disappointing rail in the second round.  Woodstock finished fourth when Endicott's two mounts, Come Monday and Fabricio, both shined in the handy to earn second and third overall.

Glynn commented on the course and her winning horse.  "In the first round with C.R. Haribo, I ended up taking the lower options but in the second round I knew that to beat Nick and Christa I was going to have to push it a little bit more.  He's a smaller horse at 15.3 hands but has a great jump in him so he just needed to be able to show off a little.  I thought that second round derby course allowed us to do that.  It was a really tough course with that trot jump down the hill so I tried to revert back to my equitation days [she laughs] to ride that."
