Wellington, Fl- February 4, 2005. Day two of Wellington Dressage took
the sport to new heights when an exuberant Lucky Tiger leaped into the
air to celebrate his win in the $1500 USEF Grand Prix. Rider, Pierre St.
Jacques seemed undaunted by the big Danish gelding's antics during the
awards ceremony after winning the Grand Prix with a score of 66.667%. On
the sidelines, St. Jacques' wife Pam Goodrich, shouted with glee,
"There's a tiger in the tank", as Lucky Tiger demonstrated his airs
above the ground. Second in the USEF Grand Prix was George Williams on
Marnix with a 65.556%, followed by Margot McAllister and Kandinsky with
a score 65.000%. Prior to the Lucky Tiger's brilliant leap all three
horses were passaging in perfect rhythm when Lucky Tiger suddenly got
the notion to show off.
In the $1500 FEI Grand Prix earlier in the day, Lars Peterson took the
win aboard Success with a 69.236%. "I felt lucky to win the class," said
Peterson, "He (Success) hasn't been out for three months since the
National Horse Show and he is a very hot horse". Second place went to
Ashley Holzer and Imperioso with a 67.986%, followed by Shannon Dueck on
Korona with a 65.972%.
Lars Peterson also had a nice win in the Fourth Level Test One class
riding Melissa Taylor Yee's striking grey 7-year-old gelding, Dacardo.
Of Decardo's performance, Peterson said, "He was both awesome and
relaxed". A combination that the judges rewarded handsomely with a score
A speaking of rewards, the judges still can't seem to get enough the
handsome Westphalian stallion, Farewell ridden by Marco Bernal. Bernal
and the 4-year-old stallion toped their score of 80.455% earned on
Thursday with a whooping score of 85.386% today in the Training Level
