Elysian Fields was the location of a splendid two day show over the weekend. Conducted in fantastic weather for jumping, classes were conducted across two arenas on both Saturday and Sunday.
The feature class on Sunday was the AQUIS Grand Prix and with almost $5,500 in prize money on offer, the event attracted a strong field of 29 combinations. The first round saw 12 combinations go clear and in an exciting jump-off, four of these went on to record double clears. The winning combination was Merrick Ubank and the gelding Elmo, who recorded a jump-off time of 53.13 seconds, almost 1.5 seconds faster than the second placed combination of Olivia Hamood and Alan 111 Z. Ubank and Warrego Landedon were only 0.25 seconds away in third place. The other double clear combination were the fourth placed Emily Patterson and her thoroughbred gelding, Libertarian.
