North Salem, NY − September 13, 2012 — The spectacular Old Salem Farm was the backdrop for sensational show jumping action on the second day of The American Gold Cup in North Salem, NY.
Forty-six riders took to the field in the warm afternoon sun for the Danbury Porsche Audi $10,000 1.45m Speed Stake held in the Grand Prix ring. Jonathan McCrea edged out the competition on Twisther with a time of 66.156.
“You know, I think I’m lucky with Twisther,” McCrea said. “He’s a specialist in these classes and he’s going to win every time. I’m lucky. We work well together. He won in New Hampshire and he won in Spruce Meadows and I was second in in the $30,000 Saturday Grand Prix in The Hamptons − the fastest time by three and a half seconds. He’s just a winner.”
