Darragh Kenny and Casper.
Wellington, FL (February 11, 2021) – Napa Valley-inspired To-Kalon Farm’s verdant polo field hosted two arenas of show jumping on the grass for Turf Tour 6, whose Wednesday competition saw Ireland’s Darragh Kenny put another win in his 2021 resume. His two late in the day rides topped the bested a 25 horse field in the $3,000 1.30m Rising Star Classic while .80m-1.20m classes ran adjacent. Kenny is poised to claim his 3rd $15,000 Turf Tour Grand Prix victory of the season on Friday at To-Kalon to wrap up week 6, unless another horse & rider team can match his accuracy and speed.
Kenny and Casper put in an effortless double clear round as one of the last rides in the Rising Star, breezing to a jump-off time of 33.102 seconds. His new time knocked Alex Matz & Jillz (34.118), who had been holding the lead since his first to go ride, into second place. Kenny was quick to assert his dominance with a second double clear effort, this time with Belo Horizonte, in 33.150 seconds, knocking Quentin Judge & HH Zorro Z (37.590) out of the top 3.
