Great Class, Congrats to all.

Last night we held the Derby and we want to congratulate Quatrain owned by Finally Farm and Janet Peterson for their win of the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby.   Held in the former 1996 Olympic Ring under lights, Allen Rheinheimer created a great course with insightful options and used the entire 450 by 460 foot ring for his track.  The class last night was wonderful and Liza displayed the excellence of our sport by not only winning the class but also winning second place.  Super Congrats to Liza Boyd.
