Diaz Scores Big In The $50,000 Equestrian Sotheby’s Jumping Derby

Wellington, Fla.—Feb. 16

Santiago Diaz was hardly the odds on favorite heading into today’s $50,000 Equestrian Sotheby’s Jumping Derby. After all, he’d never won a class of this caliber before, and his mount, Tizimin La Silla, is just 8 and consequently short on experience. But the pair still rode away with the win, getting the edge over Nick Dello Joio and Ganjana, with James North and The Man To See taking third.

Sommers Makes The Most Of Washington

Washington D.C.—Oct. 25

Samantha Sommers figured that if she was going to travel a long way to attend Washington International, she shouldn’t waste any time while she’s here.

Small Celebration earned the championship, and Small Affair took reserve. Small Celebration also tied with two other horses for the grand junior hunter title, and the judges named Sommers Best Child Rider on a Horse.
