Coyle was one of four entries that went clean over the 15-effort, first-round course designed by Nick Granat.

Mattias Tromp was first to return for the seven-effort tiebreaker course, and he set the mark to beat with a clean ride in 30.184 seconds on Infuria P&P.

Carly Anthony followed with a clean ride in 30.309 seconds on Heavenly W before Coyle moved into the lead with a clean ride in 28.584.

Anthony returned on her second mount, Jet Blue, but settled for fourth behind Coyle, Tromp and her first mount.


“SHE'S JUST naturally fast,” Coyle said of his mare. “I actually did the same numbers on the first line, and then it was pretty neat back to the in-and-out, but my horse is just a little faster. I love it here in Lake Placid. Last year was my first year here and I love it. The ground is fantastic and my horses jump really well.”

In the $2,000 1.35m Jumper Class, Linda Sheridan od Stockton, N.J., won on Vantina HPF.

Sheridan was one of five entries to reach the jump-off, and her clean jump-off ride in 21.184 seconds gave her the win over Doug King of Malvern, Pa., who was second with a jump-off time of 21.443 seconds on Main Line Girl and Jimmy Torano of Mohrsville, Pa.,

























who was third with a clean ride in 22.467 seconds on Kochio Z.
