Jenny Karazissis has won the Sunnybrook Ranch Grand Prix Hunter Derby and she had this to say about the competition: “This was my first chance to do a timed Hunter Derby and I loved it. It was fantastic. It’s really inventive and fun for the rider and spectator. The course was great and I was lucky to have been able to watch a few riders to figure out my track for the best time. Thanks goes out to Dale as well as to the sponsor Sunnybrook Ranch. They’re just great for sponsoring this event.”

The $2,500 Sunnybrook Ranch Grand Prix Hunter Derby was a qualifying class for the $25,000 Grand Prix Hunter Derby Final which takes place during the Del Mar International Horse Show, October 23-27, 2013. Sunnybrook Ranch is a small privately owned ranch located in Santa Barbara.

The Special ‘Elvenstar Angel Award’ was given to the Run for the Roses team for Best Costume. They had this to offer about the show, “It didn’t really go according to plan but we adapted and that was one of the reasons it was so much fun. We tried to maintain an even rhythm and let the ponies be themselves because they’re all really green ponies.” South Shore Farms is located in Huntington Beach.

The show resumes Saturday morning at 7:30 am and runs through Sunday April 28.

The 92nd Annual Flintridge Horse Show is a charity benefit for the Huntington Memorial Hospital.
