Farmer Goes One-Two In USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship Opening Round

Baltimore Shines In Saugerties

Saugerties, N.Y.—Aug. 6

Kelley Farmer went home Saturday night from HITS Saugerties with a bruised body—but not a bruised pride.

After taking an uncharacteristic fall from It’s Me in the handy round, Farmer literally “got back on the horse”—horses, in fact—and swept the top three positions in the $100,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, topping the class with Jane Gaston’s Baltimore. After performing a brilliant handy round that resulted in a class-best 197 score, she moved up from 10th to second with Kodachrome; she rounded out the top three with Point Being.

Devon, Pa.—June 2  

"You'd better step back, Jack's going to go crazy," Louise Serio advised the group of people standing at the in-gate of the Dixon Oval watching Liza Boyd's handy round aboard Like I Said. 

Jack Towell was there, watching his daughter intently. And as she landed over the last, huge oxer, he jumped up and down, whooping and clapping, proving Serio right. "See, I told you. Crazy!" Serio said with a laugh.
