Kelli Cruciotti-Vanderveen shines in Kentucky
Kelli had an incredible week showing in Kentucky, all the horses showed off impressive rounds in all their respective classes.
8 year old gelding, Gideon, claimed 8th place in the 1.50m $40,000 Bluegrass Grand Prix out of 34 starters. Gideon jumped beautifully finishing just 0.03 seconds over the time allowed. We are very proud of this horse, with him and Kelli only being a team since March.
Isabella Van De Zuuthoeve continues to impress us again, going double clear in the $25,000 Bluegrass Classic under the lights in the Rolex Stadium. Only 14 horses out of the 40 starters made it into the jump off. We’re so excited to see what this horse accomplishes in the future.
Our newest import, 7 year old Kannascha owned by APG Stables raced to secure 2nd place in the 7 year old young jumper final on Saturday. This talented young horse really proved herself as this was only her second class in the United States. Kannascha is offered for sale.
Jamie Buis’ Really Electra Xango claimed the top spot in the open 1.30 jumpers with Kelli in the tack.
Sale horse, Gambler B, piloted by Avery Glynn jumped perfectly to win the ASPCA Maclay out of a competitive group of 26 horse and rider combinations. This horse continues to shine in both the hunter and equitation rings.
Huge thank you to our team for all their hard work ending our summer season in Kentucky. We would also like to extend a thank you to our sponsors for keeping our horses happy and healthy: Platinum Performance, Ariat, GGT-Footing, Samshield, Weatherbeeta, and Devoucoux.
