Leone and Lincourt Gino Blaze to Third in the BonjourQuebec.com World Cup
Wellington- July 26, 2012- Peter Leone and his Lionshare Farm homebred,
Wayferer, nicknamed "The Future," earned the win out of a field of 50
international competitors in the 1.25m Open Jumpers at International
Bromont. Leone and Wayfarer also placed in the Derby de Vitesse/Speed Derby.
"By Nona Garson's Languster out of a Holsteiner mare, he was born big and
handsome. From day one, he showed character, range, scope and
intelligence. He is just a genuinely, lovely talent," said Leone about
Wayfarer. "Because he was born on the farm, he has been my project. We know
each other's nuances and unspoken signals, so together we have the ability
to turn and jump."
Leone and Monica Carrera's Lincourt Gino delivered the speed and accuracy
required to put them in second place on the leader board in the 1.35m Open
Jumpers. Then on Sunday, the pair was one of only six horse and rider teams
to go faultless in the first round of the BonjourQuebec.com World Cup
qualifying event. Leone and Gino, a big Irish Sporthorse gelding, have been
in the money all spring and summer and were the second fastest of the
four-faulters in the jump-off round, earning the duo third place honors.
In the 1.25m Open Jumpers, Leone and Tiffany, also owned by Monica Carrera,
were sixth. Then, with Carrera in the irons aboard Tiffany, she maneuvered
her way to a fifth place prize in the Royal Canin Challenge, a 1.20m Open
Brittain Ezzes and her own Empire performed well for the Lionshare Farm team
as well, with respectable placing in the Junior/ Amateur 1.10m out of a
field of 49.
