Tamra Smith was in first & second with Boyd Martin third after dressage at Jersey Fresh

ALLENTOWN, N.J.--Tamra Smith of Murrieta, Calif, was the overnight leader in the CCI4*-L at the Jersey Fresh International three-Day Event on EnVogue with a score of 24.3, but Smith overtook herself on Friday, May 7 on the 12-year-old, Danito, scoring a 23.9.

In third heading into Cross-County on Saturday for the CC14*-L was Boyd Martin of Cochranville, Pa., on Luke 140.,

Despite Luke 140 being one of Boyd’s newer rides, they seemed be in their groove on Thursday scoring a 25.6.

“I was thrilled with his test yesterday," said Martin. "But it’s not a dressage competition and we have a mission ahead of us tomorrow on the cross-country.”

Smith was also leading in the Jersey Fresh CCI3*-L on a score of 26.7 on Solaguayre California.

“She is new to the level and this will be her first 3* long format," said Smith. "She’s a super horse, has an impeccable record, and is an all-around athlete.”

Phillip Dutton of West Grove, Pa. was second on Quasi Cool on a score of 27.4, and Caitlin Silliman on Ally KGO, was third going into cross country on a score of 27.5, just .1 behind Dutton.


LEADING the CCI4*-S division was Boyd Martin on Long Island T on a 23.8.

"He’s one of the veteran horses in my string and although we had an unfortunate fall in Kentucky, it’s great this event is two weeks later so we get to redeem ourselves.”

Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp on Cooley Moonshine was second on a score of 25.6, and Holly Payne-Caravella was third on Charm King,  scoring 28.4.

“I didn’t know what to expect going into it since I trailered in and didn’t ride in the arenas beforehand," said Payn-Caravalla. "But Charm was super quiet in the warm-up and really good in the ring,”

“I think the cross country looks pretty good," she said. "There are a few places and combinations I need to look at again and make decisions on. Charm is relatively new to the level,so you don’t always know what you have.It’s nice that the short format goes second so we can watch how some of the long format competitors ride some of the combinations.”
