Mary Burke and her own Thoroughbred gelding Prince William led the weekend at Aspen Farms from start to finish. This was the OTTB’s first Advanced competition and resulted in their first Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series victory. Burke says, "[Prince William] has come a long way from race horse to Young Event Horse at age five to an Advanced horse at 13. Riding is a process of seeing what you can do as a team, and who knew our process would get us to the Advanced level! I wouldn't be at the Advanced level today without the guidance of my late coach Amy Tryon, who taught me over the previous years."

Buck Davidson was all about the scoring predictions this weekend and once again he was right, knowing he could have a little bit of time on Ian Stark’s cross-country course and still bring home the blue ribbon. This is the second time that Davidson and Carl and Cassandra Segal’s 15-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, Ballynoe Castle RM have won the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* at Richland Park, having previously being named champions in 2011.

A little less than half of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* jumped clear over Marc Donovan’s show jump course today at Richland Park H.T., and the top four riders kept all the rails in the cup to maintain their placings. While the course seemed deceptively simply with related lines just snaking back and forth across the field, the terrain and distances kept things interesting. Donovan truly does try to set the riders up for success, and Emily Beshear said that the footing felt great and the horses were jumping well out of the grass.
