This year, she is showing two different horses in the open Jumper section, and she won Thursday evening on C&C Willow.

Andrew Ross on Cornet's Cobalt was third, Clean in 44.804.

"I've had this mare for about a year," said Chapot. "She's nice. She's very forward and brave. She likes to go to the jumps."

"I was about 10th in the order," she said."I just rode my plan. She has a big stride so that means in makes leaving out a stride very easy. This was her first rime showing under lights. She was good."

"I've had Tyson Fury since the end of his 4-year-old year," she said."He also was circuit champion in this division in Florida."
