We have a special announcement about two of our top horses! Following their top 10 finishes at the Kentucky Three-Day Event, both the Mr. Medicott Syndicate’s Mr. Medicott “Cave” and Tom Tierney and Annie Jones’ Fernhill Fugitive “Jack” will be continuing their careers with young riders.
We always said Kentucky would be Mr. Medicott’s last four-star, and we couldn’t have asked for a better result than for him to finish as the new National CCI4* Champion. Cave came out of the event really well, and all of his syndicate members agreed it would be a great thing for him to stay in the sport at a lower level. Olivia is going to ride Cave for the summer, and we will see how they get along. She is also still riding Icabad Crane and Santa’s Playboy so has her own string going now!
Our longtime supporter and good friend Tom Tierney owns half of Fernhill Fugitive, and his daughter Caitlin is ambitious about her goals in the sport. She is currently competing at the Intermediate level, and now she will take the ride on Jack with a goal of doing her first Advanced on him. Jack is only 12, but he’s always struggled to make the time at four-star level. He loves his job, so we decided we wanted to make it a little bit easier for him and have Caitlin take the ride. Annie Jones will stay on as an owner for Jack, and we are all excited to see what he and Caitlin achieve.
Thank you to our owners for supporting these new career ventures for Cave and Jack. We will keep you updated on their progress with their new riders!
