The yearling gelding, Popportunity SFF (Popeye-Native Regent) proved to be very competitive against his “horse sized” competition this season.  Owned and bred by Barbara Nelson, Popportunity commandingly won the USDF Yearling Colt or Gelding Horse of the Year title with over a four point margin.  Popportunity’s high median score also earned him the ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Awards Championship for the same division.  In the 2-Year Old Colts and Geldings, Phenix (Popeye-Lonetree’s Romeo) ranked 16th for Horse of the Year and earned the Reserve Championship for the same division in the ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Awards.  Phenix is owned and bred by Angi eMirarchi and has been very competitive at the dressage breed shows throughout his early career.  Congratulations Angie and Barbara on the success of your Popeye offspring!
