ESDCTA Memorial Day Breed Shows
Quinnten Alston took two yearling colts to Allentown, NJ for the ESDCTA Breed Shows on May 28-29th . Santana Hilltop (Sternlicht-Anhaltiner) won Saturday’s Yearling Colts, was Reserve Colt Champion on Saturday, and placed 2nd in Sunday’s Yearling Colts. Gavin Parfit & Isabel Barzun’s colt Kevelaer was 2nd in Saturday’s Yearling Colts class, but then went on to win the Colt Championship and was Reserve Champion Young Horse. On Sunday, Kevelaer continued to shine with a win in the Yearling Colts class and the Colts/Geldings Championship. He then continued on to Reserve Champion Young Horse and Reserve Grand Champion. Quite a start for his show career!
