September 2—Bridgehampton, N.Y.
Course designer Guillherme Jorge put a lot of thought into the number of fences he would include for the $250,000 FTI Consulting Grand Prix CSI-W at the Hampton Classic Horse Show. In fact, it wasn’t until he saw the final list of entries on the morning of the class that he made his final decision.
“At this level of competition, it’s always a very fine line between an easy course and a difficult course,” he explained. “But this is a very important class and very important prize money.”
