Dansuse MF Captures Devon Grand Championship

danseuse-webThe Don Principe-Rotspon filly Dansuse MF, bred and owned by Marydell Farm, was the star of this year’s Dressage at Devon.  She began with a commanding win in the Two-Year Old Fillies class with a  score of 89.2% — yes, you read that correctly!  She went on to win the Filly Championship and place second in the Young Horse Championship on Tuesday evening.  Rested and refreshed on Wednesday evening, Dansuse danced in the Dixon Oval to win the Grand Championship over an impressive group of horses.  Even after a big trot run, she immediately settled into the ground-covering, relaxed walk that is so much her sire’s trademark.  King Santacruz did a superb job handling Dansuse in both the prep at Hilltop Farm leading up to the show as well as during Devon.  Congratulations Maryanna and Wendell Haymon on your spectacular win!
