Ali Wagstaff and Great Thing.

Loxahatchee Groves, FL (January 12, 2022) – Ali Wagstaff and Great Thing delivered great rounds this Wednesday during the first official day of competition on The Ridge at Wellington Groves 2023 Surf Tour. The pair cruised to a double clear effort over a course set by Hector Loyola to win the $5,000 1.30m Rising Star Classic at The Ridge’s Level 2 Jumper event, where .8m-1.40m classes run Wednesday-Friday at The Ridge’s newly renovated 20-acre facility on the corner of E Road and Okeechobee Boulevard.

Wagstaff and Mill Pond Farm, Inc.’s Great Thing narrowly edged out Luis F. Larrazabal aboard Leeann Albin’s Baroness in the jump-off to secure the victory. Sabrina Lefebvre and her own Happy Melody De La Defliere had held the lead most of the day before Wagstaff’s effort. Larrazabal and Baroness’s run bumped Lefebvre to third but wasn’t enough to catch Wagstaff and Great Thing.
