Wellington, FL – March 16, 2019 – The highlight event for week 10 of the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) was the $134,000 Horseware Ireland Grand Prix CSI 3* on Saturday, March 16, and coming away with the victory was Amanda Derbyshire (GBR) riding Roulette BH for Gochman Sport Horses LLC.
There were 45 entries in the grand prix, all competing over a course designed by Michel Vaillancourt of Canada. Of those entries, four found the path to a clear round and the jump-off.
In a fitting finish during Women’s History Month, four ladies were competing for the top spot in the grand prix.
Jordan Allen and Chevito Rock the Bruno Delgrange 16-17 Large Junior Hunter 3’6” Division
Some of the best junior hunter riders took to the Rost Arena at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center on March 16 to see who would be named champion of the Bruno Delgrange Large Junior Hunter 16-17 3’6” division during Week 10. Hot off the heels of her major success during WCHR Hunter Week, Jordan Allen of West Bloomfield, MI piloted Chevito to the champion title on a total of 28.00 points.
Allen and the Rock Ridge Farms’ nine-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Chepetto x Vita Vi) have only been paired since Week 7 of WEF, but the two have already hit their stride under the tutelage of Ashland Farms and Brady Mitchell.
“He’s always so reliable and well-behaved, so I’m very lucky to be able to ride him,” Allen commented.
