Winning at Prix St. Georges at Majestic View I and II was just the icing on the cake after a long, hard road.
“Every time I finish a test on him, I am 50 percent smiling and 50 percent wanting to cry. I just can’t believe he’s come back and that I’m riding him,” Darcy Gaines said of Ornament.
Gaines has beat the odds of limited funds and a serious injury to bring Ornament back to winning form. At the Majestic View I and II, June 12-14 in Batavia, Ohio, they topped one Prix St. Georges class (66.05%) and were second in another (60.26%).
