There was no shortage of camaraderie and competition during our second week of the Aiken Fall Festival, even with an amended schedule. Like Week 1, our specialty classes saw full fields and we want to congratulate the following horse and rider combinations:
- $5,000 Aero-Equine Welcome Stake – Brando Du Rouet owned and ridden by Kirk Webby
- The R. Bruce Duchoissois $25,000 Grand Prix sponsored by Jack Wetzel – Emilia, ridden by David Blake for owner Pine Hollow Farm
- $2,500 National Derby – String of Pearls, ridden by Gavin Moylan for owner Penny Denegre
Plans are underway for our Tryon show October 10th-14th along with our Holiday Premier Show November 29th – December 2nd at Bruce’s Field. We hope to see all of you in the coming weeks.
Finally, we are elated to announce that we have been awarded the 2019 Zone 3 & 4 Children’s and Adult Hunter Championships to be held Week 2 of the 2019 Aiken Fall Festival. Stay tuned for qualifying details.
All the best,
Megan and JP Godard
