Duncan and Mr. Whoopy wow the crowd in Sacramento as the duo secures the win in the Land Rover Grand Prix of Sacramento

Rancho Murieta, CA – The fifth anniversary of the Sacramento International Horse Show culminated last night with the $55,000 Land Rover Grand Prix of Sacramento. New Zealand transplant Duncan McFarlane and his stallion Mr. Whoopy thrilled a sold out Murieta Equestrian Center with a fast double clear for the win. Following the Grand Prix, Rich Fellers’ Flexible was named “Best Horse” for the second consecutive year.

Twenty-six horse and rider combinations attempted Heiko Wahler’s excellent course, with seven returning for the jump off. Duncan, Tiffany Sullivan, and Saer Coulter were the only three double clears.

Before the Grand Prix, spectators cheered on several brave volunteers who competed in the Human High Jump competition. Sacramento International Horse Show’s own Skyler Brittner managed to clear the five foot high Swiss Up fence.

After the class the riders signed autographs and mingled with fans as the Victory Celebration got started. Exhibitors and spectators alike danced the night away to music from cover band Take2. It was an all around fantastic night, full of unparalleled competition and great entertainment!
