It was déjà vu for Maddie Tosh and Bit of Love at the 2019 USEF Pony Finals, presented by Collecting Gaits Farm, on Thursday as the talented partnership defended their title in the Small Regular Pony Hunters ahead of a large field of challengers. The 2018 victors once again proved why they belong at the top of the scorecard, riding to the highest score over fences and in the cumulative standings to emerge victorious for the second time. Tosh had double the reasons to celebrate Thursday as she also led teammate Baroness of Locheil to the initial lead in the Medium Green Pony Hunters with two phases of competition completed. In the Large Green Pony Hunters, Tessa Downey and Sandcastle lead the way prior to the final over fences round to determine the division champion.

On a picturesque  summer evening at the Kentucky Horse Park, 28 horse-and-rider combinations attempted to maneuver the course designed by Bobby Murphy for the $50,000 Kentucky Summer Grand Prix. A myriad of fences came down in the first round for the majority of the athletes with only six pairs advancing to the jump-off. It was a race of speed in the 8-effort jump-off with riders thundering across the Rolex Stadium trying to overtake their competitors to the cheer of the crowd. At the end, Brian Moggre swiftly navigated the course on Major Wager LLC’s MTM Flutterby to add another grand prix win to his resume. Moggre overtook Jimmy Torano’s impressive time of 44.857 seconds by the skin of his teeth, breaking the timers in only  44.727 seconds, only a mere .13 seconds to spare.
