But no.

Ringside Chat: Will Simpson Is One Winning Dude

Four grand prix starts. Four wins. That’s Will Simpson’s record at the HITS Desert Circuit so far. It’s a remarkable start to 2015 for the California rider, who in 2008 helped the U.S. team earn gold in the Olympic Games in Hong Kong with the talented but quirky Carlsson vom Dach.

Carlsson was sold after the Games and went on to different riders, and Simpson has been building his string ever since. When The Dude walked into his barn aisle in March 2014, Simpson thought the future might look pretty bright.

Every Second Counts: 2015 WEF Todd Minikus vs. Conor Swail

Todd Minikus hasn’t known Cordonos very long. In fact, the 14-year-old gelding arrived in his barn just two weeks ago.

But that didn’t stop him from riding the Oldenburg to the top of the first grand prix of the 2015 Winter Equestrian Festival, the $30,000 WEF 1 Grand Prix held at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, Fla., on Jan. 11.

Minikus and Cordonos topped a massive 22-horse jump-off with some of the fastest riders in the world; Ireland's Conor Swail and Grafton finished second and U.S. rider McLain Ward and HH Ashley were third.
