San Juan Capistrano, CA - September 12, 2012 - Congratulations to Michelle Parker and her reliable mare Xel Ha for their dominating performance in the $32,000 Blenheim Jumper Classic, presented by EquiFit, inc. Twenty-one horse and rider duos took on Brazilian course designer Guilherme Jorge's track this evening in the Blenheim Farms Indoor Arena. The one-round speed class saw five clear rounds as riders raced against the clock trying to beat the tight time allowed.
Jorge set a technical indoor track that benefited horses that excelled in that type of setting. Faults popped up throughout the twelve obstacle course, but majority of faults accrued were found at the 1.53m wall, the oxer-vertical combination, the liverpool vertical and coming home to the very wide EquiFit, inc. oxer.
Parker and Xel Ha were coming off their brilliant win in the $32,000 Showpark Jumper Classic just two weeks ago in Del Mar. The pair will return for Friday night's $50,000 Blenheim World Cup Grand Prix, set for 7:00pm.
