Kevin Babington Cuts McLain Ward's Streak Short At Devon

Devon, Pa.—June 2  

Horses are for sure the ultimate humblers, as Rothchild proved tonight. McLain Ward rode a remarkable winning streak into the Devon Horse Show.

He'd won grand prix classes at the Old Salem Farm horse shows (N.Y.) and the Rome CSIO before coming to Devon and quickly winning three of the FEI open jumper classes in the week's schedule. So, he was for sure the hot favorite to top the $225,000 Sapphire Grand Prix of Devon. And as he and Rothchild landed off the next-to-last fence of the jump-off, he was well on his way to a winning time.
