Kent Farrington Wins Zada Enterprises, LLC $40,000 Grand Prix at Littlewood
Littlewood Farm offered over $100,000 in prize money during their Spring I show.
The Zada Enterprises, LLC $40,000 Grand Prix at Littewood Farm was held on March 19, 2006. Kent Farrington and Up Chiqui owned by Javier Salvador/J. Greenleaf took the top prize. Only three other riders joined Farrington in the jump off. Henrik Gunderson riding Darvin Garbo came in second; Margie Engle and Hidden Creek's Alibi were third and Robin Sweely with Carlowclover was fourth.
When asked what part of the course did he find most difficult, and what was his plan to get through it successfully, Kent Farrington answered: "The triple was the most difficult part of the course. It required scope. My horse has a lot of scope. He is just starting. He has been in three Grand Prixs and won two of them. I wanted to get deep to A so I could kick at C. I wanted an easy distance."
Margie Engle responded to the same question saying: "The triple, it rode tight from A to B. Alibi has scope so I rode in easy, and pressed at B. It was tough being first in the jump off. I sliced too much and had a rail at the second jump. Then I slowed down a bit, but we were still the fastest of the four in the jump off."
Before the class started we asked Dave Ballard of Ontario, Canada who was the assistant course designer at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and 2000 Sydney Olympics, and who designed the Zada Enterprises $40,000 Grand Prix course a few questions.
