Don Principe Offspring Earn USDF Awards in 2015

It’s great to see the Don Principe offspring competing successfully under junior, amateur, and professional riders alike.  This year’s USDF and All-Breeds Awards show Don Principe offspring competing from Training Level all the way through Prix St. Georges.  A particular highlight in this year’s results is Doctor Wendell (ds. Sandro Hit). “Doc” and Jim Koford’s wonderful rapport is evident when looking through their accomplishments this season.  In Doc’s first year at Prix St. Georges, their efforts this season earned them a median score of 68.9% and an AHS All-Breeds 3rd place standing for Prix St. Georges Open.  The 4-Year Old mare Diamond Lady MF (ds. Royal Diamond), owned by Cackie Vroom and bred by Marydell Farm, had a standout year.  Diamond Lady ranked 8th in the competitive USDF 4-Year Old standings and earned an AHS All-Breeds Reserve Championship at Training Level.   Under owner Paige Wolfe, Delaney (ds. Tantris) earned a 7th place standing in the Junior/Young Rider Training Level rankings. In the GOV Oldenburg All-Breeds Delaney, bred by Pam Noll, took the Championship for Junior/Young Rider Training Level.  Last but not least, Dhouble Scoop (ds. Lancet) and owner Ellen Kettler earned the Championship for the GOV Oldenburg Adult Amateur Training Level standings.  Dhouble Scoop was bred by Rolling Stone Farm.  Congratulations to all and best wishes for an excellent 2016 show season!
