Dressage at Lexington Breed Show

The Lexington Breed Show was a fun outing for Team Hilltop. Our handler, Quinnten Alston, took two youngsters from the farm down for the show. Both Relevè HTF (Royal Prince-Cordoba) and Quinzy HTF (Qredit-Cordoba) placed 2nd in their respective age divisions. Quinzy was 3rd in the Filly Championship and Relevè was 5th in the AHS IBC. Quinnten also handled Karen Radley’s Royal Odessa (Royal Prince-Chardonnay) to 3rd in the Yearling Fillies and Tawna King’s Quarter Sinclaire (Qredit-Lord Sinclair) to 2nd in the Fillies of 2014, Reserve Champion in the Foal Championship, and 3rd in the AHS IBC. Quinnten also handled Marne Martin-Tucker’s Dante Coeur to a win in the 3-year Old Colts/Geldings.

Additional offspring by Hilltop stallions had a fantastic show.  What a thrill to hear 4 of the 6 fillies in the Filly Championship were by one of our stallions!  Congratulations to owner Trisha DeRosa and breeder Janice Barnes on Beaucoup d’Amis (Bugatti-Contucci) being named Filly champion, Reserve Champion Young Horse, and ISR/Oldenburg class winner! Wow! Her half-sister Rohsalina (Royal Prince-Contucci) also won mares under saddle. Danae MF by Doctor Wendell MF out of EM Rising Star MF won her Fillies of 2014 class with an 81.4% and combined with Dulcinea VT placed second in the Get of Sire class.  Dinah Shore MF (Don Principe-Rotspon) won the 3 Year Old Fillies Class and took Reserve Champion in the Filly Championship.  The Hilltop-bred mare Concertina (Contucci-Cor Noir) finished 2nd in the 4 & Older Broodmares class for owner Renee Hall.  Barbara Nelson’s Popportunity SFF (Popeye – Native Regent) won the Yearling Colts & Geldings class while Angie Mirarchi’s Phenix (Popeye x Clanfair Mary K) was third in the Two-Year old class with a 79.1%.   Chris Roseberry on Rose CCF’s wins in the Suitable to Become a Dressage Horse and the 4-5yr Mare Materiale. Rose is by Royal Prince and out of an Enrico Caruso-Schonfeld mare.  What a great day!
