Emily (Wagner) Miles of Overland Park, Kansas (Region 4) finished a solid second with 71.208% earned for their precise routine also highlighted by single-handed one-tempi’s on the final centerline that even prompted a grin from judge Lilo Fore. “I don’t love the music but it works so well for him – he may not be the biggest mover but it highlights his precision,” she noted. “It’s not the first time he’s come through for me – I’ve had him for ten years since he was a three-year-old and here we are. That’s pretty cool.”
Miles wanted to add she was especially happy her other mount Markel/USEF National Grand Prix Champion Wake Up helped her Mom Jenna Wagner earn her USDF Gold Medal.
