Contucci was represented by three offspring at the USDF Region 1 Championships, all competing at Fourth Level or higher.  The 2001 Hanoverian mare Con Dia (Contucci-Cor Noir), bred by Hilltop Farm, owned and ridden by Stephanie McNutt, were very successful at the regional championships.  The pair took home the Fourth Level Adult Amateur Championship and the Prix St. Georges Adult Amateur Reserve Championship.  Competing in the Fourth Level Open Championship was Catch the Wind (Contucci x Arjoy).  Catch the Wind is owned, bred, and ridden by Nancy Sharpless.  Nancy and Catch the Wind had a 7th place finish in the Fourth Level Open Championship.  Last but not least, Chasing Wonder (Contucci-Diwan) competed in the Open Intermediaire I Championships.  “Chase” is owned by Tricia Sansevero and bred by Kenneth and Natalie Ortberg.   Chase and rider Wanja Gerlach finished Reserve Champion in the Intermediaire I Championship with a score of 68.618.  Congratulations to all the owners, breeders, and riders!
