Palm Beach, Fla.—Jan. 4
Kent Farrington won the first two Trump Invitational classes, in 2013 and 2014, and he seemed poised for a third victory in today’s $125,000 grand prix. But as Blue Angel sped around the final turn of the jump-off, clear up until that point, the mare slipped badly behind. Farrington lost some time, and the horse pulled down a rail of the final fence.
Laura Kraut saw her opening. She made a different plan.
