The Answer Says Yes To The Devon Derby

Devon, Pa.--May 28  

Maggie Jayne had better get her sister Haylie a nice baby shower gift. When Haylie found out she was pregnant this spring, she turned the reins of The Answer over to Maggie. And then Maggie promptly rode him to the win in the $25,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby at Devon.

“She was watching on the computer and was texting me. She was hysterical, she was so excited. She told me, ‘It’s the hormones!’ She’s very supportive,” Maggie said of Haylie. “This is my fourth show with him. He’s a blast! He tries really hard and he’s a lot of fun.”

Experience Pays Off For Cellino In Gulfport

March 6—Gulfport, Miss.

Martien van der Hoeven only came to Gulfport, Miss., for one week this winter, but he made it worth his while when he rode Cellino to the top of today’s $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby.

That derby specialist spends most of his time in a paddock and enjoying light hacks in a field at home, only getting his mane braided when there’s a big derby on the schedule. And today Cellino’s experience came in handy today, helping him top the field of 35 to take the blue for Julie Thompson.
