Tracy Fenney (USA) and MTM Apple, owned by MTM Farm, could not be caught in the $75,000 Hampton Green Farm Grand Prix on Saturday, January 22, at World Equestrian Center – Ocala during the Winter Spectacular III show in Ocala, FL. Thirty-six horse-and-rider combinations contested the technical course designed by Anderson Lima (BRA) and 12 of those riders continued on to the jump-off. Fenney and the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare delivered a second fault-free round with a quick time of 48.021 seconds to earn the blue ribbon.

“I watched Rowan Willis go on [Wellington Grey Goose], and he was incredibly fast,” said Fenney of watching her competitors in the jump-off. “I knew if he left all the jumps up, he would be impossible to beat. Luckily for me, he had the last one down. I also knew Aaron [Vale] was right behind me and he’s won so many Grands Prix, I knew I was going to have to go pretty darn fast. I did what I had to do, and Apple kicked into high gear.”

Peter Petschenig (AUT) and Brooke Peterson’s Ennebel Van Get Posthuijs were not far behind Fenney and earned second place with a time of 49.189 seconds. Tom Foley (IRL) piloted his own Idalgo to a third-place finish after stopping the clock at 50.384 seconds.

An additional $5,000 was awarded to the fastest four-faulter of the $75,000 Hampton Green Farm Grand Prix. Jacqueline Ruyle and her own San Chano received the award with an incredibly fast time of 76.022 seconds with one down.

Luis Sabino Goncalves received the $5,000 ‘Luck of the Draw’ award.
