WELLINGTON, Fla.--U.S. Olympic team silver medalist Kent Farrington has an up-and-coming mare in Toulayna, who won the $226,000 CSI4* Grand Prix on ‘Saturday Night Lights’, March 18.
In the biggest test of her career to date, the 9-year-old Zangersheide mare was the fastest in the jump-off over Andy Christiansen Jr.'s course for her first grand prix win.
Nine horses advanced to the jump-off where the lead changed five times.
“This is definitely the biggest track she’s jumped,” said Farrington of the mare that was also third in the CSI4* Grand Prix during WEF 3. “I have high hopes for this horse. She’s fast, careful and everything I like in a show jumper.”
Farrington’s Tokyo teammate Jessica Springsteen set the pace as the first clear round aboard her Olympic mount Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, finishing in 39.58 seconds , but she was soon beaten by Lillie Keenan on Agana van het Gerendal Z in 39.10 seconds.
